Pressurecycled mechanical insufflation

As a safety precaution, an upper limit of acceptable pressure associated with mechanical insufflation is selected. If this is reached, gas flow from the inspiratory valve(s) automatically terminates, the expiratory valve opens, and an alarm activates. The expiratory valve remains open until gas pressure in the breathing circuit decreases to the selected baseline pressure (i.e. atmospheric pressure or a selected level of positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP)) or until a subsequent machine breath is initiated.
