Respiratory Failure & Mechanical Ventilation

Double-triggering seen in flow and volume waveforms from volume-controlled ventilation. Continued subject effort during the second breath causes the airway pressure to drop below the trigger threshold, which initiates an additional “stacked” breath. Note the large increase in peak airway pressure caused by the stacked breath and the high peak expiratory flow following the stacked breath.
