I just started my new job in the NICU. Just when I got comfy with a conventional vent my preceptor and I had a baby who had to be put on a HFJV.
It was right near change of shift so I just got a brief introduction to it.
Can someone please explain the Jet to me.
I know the rate was 420, the PIP was 32
Then there was another ventilator with a rate of 5 and a PEEP of 6 and the
Fi02 was 30%. Am I missing some numbers?
So I understand what the numbers mean, but just not quite sure how the Jet works with the 2 vents.
Any help/explanations would be very appreciated.
Also what is the difference between the Jet and the oscillator?
(who felt like this at the end of my shift)
