Fig. 1

Example of ineffective and effective triggering in a mechanical ventilated child. Recording of airway pressure (Paw), oesophageal pressure (Poes) and ventilator flow (V’) versus time. Orange interrupted lines are showing effective triggering with in the orange shaded area an oesophageal pressure swing. Blue interrupted lines are showing ineffective triggering. Both ineffective errors are showing a different oesophageal pressure swing (blue area) with a concomitant different pressure–time–product (PTP) calculation
