Table 2 Results of the general trial

From: A comparison of volume control and pressure-regulated volume control ventilation in acute respiratory failure

  PRVC (n = 22) VC (n = 22) P
Days on ventilator 7.0 (3.8-10.3) 6.2 (3.8-8.5) ns
Failing 0/22 2/22 ns
Survival 12/22 11/22 ns
  1. Days on ventilator = median (95% confidence limits) number of days spent on mechanical ventilation; Failing = number of patients failing the assigned mode of ventilation; Survival = survival in the two groups.
