During the next few days, he improved and HFOV was switched to synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation (SIMV) with Fi[O.sub.2] 0.4.
CVS, continuous ventilatory support; SIMV, synchronized intermittent mechanical ventilation; CV group, conventional mechanical ventilation with 12mL/kg tidal volume ([V.sub.T]) and 0 cm [H.sub.2]O positive end- expiratory pressure (PEEP); PV group, protective lung ventilation with 6 mL/kg [V.sub.T] and 10 cm [H.sub.2]O PEEP.
Among all 104 patients, 48 (46.2%) received SIMV combined with PSV (volume-controlled SIMV 28.8%, pressure-controlled SIMV 17.3%), which was the most frequent mode of ventilation, followed by PSV (18.3%), CPAP (10.6%), A/C (9.6%), PCV (4.8%), VCV (4.8%), BIPAP (2.9%), and PRVC (2.9%).
In light of these advances in ventilator technology, our objective was to compare the safety and efficacy of the Intellivent-ASV mode with the currently practised ventilation mode in our medical ICU, namely ASV, as well as to the standard ventilation mode used in most other ICUs (SIMV).
Synchronized Intermittent Mechanical Ventilation - (SIMV) A mode of mechanical ventilation that delivers mandatory machine breathes as well as spontaneous breaths.

Basically there are three breath delivery techniques: CMV, SIMV and spontaneous.
Miller presented "Code Stroke: What Are All Those New Guidelines?" "Ventilator Care: Beyond SIMV" and "Flip a Coin?
La paciente ingreso a UCI bajo efectos de sedacion con Glasgow 3/15, sin soporte inotropico, con ventilacion mecanica en modo asistido SIMV 8 + presion de soporte 8, con una frecuencia respiratoria total de 16, con una fraccion inspirada de oxigeno de 0,4, PEEP 6, con lo que saturaba el 97%.
The guideline discusses progressive ventilator-free breathing (PVFB) and synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation (SIMV).
Respiratory: 4.0 endotracheal tube in place at 13 cm, ventilator settings of FI[O.sub.2] 50%, Mode SIMV, VC/PS with TV 30, IMV 28 Peep 4, PS 10 with clear to white secretion when suctioned.
Expanded clinical capabilities for spontaneously breathing patients include Synchronized Intermittent Mandatory Ventilation (SIMV) and PSVPro(TM) (Pressure Support Ventilation with an apnea backup mode).
