  • Mechanical ventilation complications
  • Lung overdistension, barotrauma, lung collapse, and blood desaturation
  • Significant costs to health care system

Invasive Mechanical Ventilation (IMV) in the USA

IMV represents a high and mortality group of patients that are associated with significant costs to the healthcare system.

Cost difference

  • 3,109


    per 100.000 adults
    received IMV in 2009 (1)

  • 600-1,500


    Hospital cost increment
    by one IMV day (2)

  • 2,093


    Cost saving per patient
    after implementation of CLRT (3)
