Several recent advances in mechanical ventilation such as inverse ratio ventilation (IRV), airway pressure release ventilation (APRV), pressure support ventilation (PSV), pressure-regulated volume control (PRVC), proportional assist ventilation (PAV), nonconventional techniques and neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA) are explained in detail.
