Ventilator Mode Map App

Ventilator Mode Map Mobile App

Due to no industry standard for ventilator mode taxonomy and over 170 unique names for modes of ventilation.  Learning and understanding ventilator mode classification can be problematic.   Ventilator Mode Map provides a easy to use handheld solution.   With this app one can choose from 12 different vendors,  37 different models (with pictures) and provides hundreds of definitions. One would have to review various text books and journal articles to compile this knowledge base.

This app is for android devices, I have a copy on my Samsung Galaxy tablet & Motorola phone, works fine on both devices. Available on Google Play see link below.
