Table 1 Tidal volume measurements

From: Do actual tidal volumes differ from prescribed tidal volumes?

Total number of aVt measurements 286
Number of aVt measurements per patient (IQR) 12 (4 to 20)
aVt <6 ml/kg PBW 25 (9%)
aVt 6 to 8 ml/kg PBW 156 (58%)
aVt 8 to 10 ml/kg PBW 82 (29%)
aVt >10 ml/kg PBW 23 (8%)
Mean aVt per kg PBW (SD) 7.85 (1.23)
  1. aVt, actual tidal volume; PBW, predicted body weight.
