Explain diff bet APRV and PC IRV

  1. Can someone tell me the easiest way to differentiate between the two in regards to which one is better. I have worked with PC IRV and am familiar with the physiology behind it, but the concept of APRV still confuses me at times. Thanks.

    Please see my post under APRV vs. BiPAP. I have explained it there, all be it in a simplified manner.
