Main circulators (Figure 2) are normally controlled via constant differential pressure or proportional pressure control mode (World Pumps 2009).
With the new pressure control mode, clinicians can choose from three operating modes: manual, with which the patient can be ventilated manually with a bag or breathe spontaneously; volume, with which the patient is continually ventilated by the device controlled by volume; or pressure control, with which the patient is continually ventilated by the device controlled by pressure.
It appears that when there is a disconnection at the common gas outlet during positive pressure ventilation, whether in volume control or pressure control modes, the machine does not alarm.
