the degree to which a measurement can be reproduced
the extent to which a measurement agrees with a standard
unavoidable error but can be minimized
due to a faulty measuring device or a procedural flaw
shift in position of an object due to the viewing angle
most common error made
time spent inhaling
time spent exhaling
Total Cycle Time
sum of both the I-time and the E-time
formula for I:E Ratio
Normal I:E Ratio
1:2 or 1:3
COPD I:E Ratio
1:4 or 1:5
Infant I:E Ratio
1:1 or 1:1.5
Normal Breathing Rate
Ventilator Breathing Rate
Inverse I:E Ratio
when E-time exceeds I-time
only used on patients who have ARDS and the patient must be very heavily sedated
inverse I:E ratio formula
calculating I:E ratio when the respiratory rate and either I-time or E-time is given
1) TCT= 60/RR; 2) I-time= TCT/sum of I:E ratio; 3) E-time= TCT- I-time
calculating the I-time and E-time when TCT and I:E ratio are given
