Table 1 Ventilation groups and setting for the TCAV groups 1–3

From: Time-controlled adaptive ventilation (TCAV) accelerates simulated mucus clearance via increased expiratory flow rate

Group no. Mode of ventilation (n = 10 runs/group) EFT/EPF PHigh (cmH2O) PLow (cmH2O) THigh (sec) TLow (sec)
1. TCAV protocol group 1 [8] 0.75 25 0 4.5 0.5–0.6
2. TCAV protocol group 2 0.75 25 5 4.5 0.42
3. TCAV protocol group 3 0.75 25 10 4.5 0.42–0.5
  1. The progressive PLow scale was employed to generate different combinations of IPF and EPF
