Stocked breaths in PRVC. Notice the first breath is time triggered and pressure controlled with volume target of 400. Tidal volume was only about 275. The second breath is triggered by the patient before full exhalation, and the pressure was slightly higher as this is pressure regulated volume control and the volume of 400 was not delivered in the first breath. The flow is higher due to patient's effort however total volume was around 300.
