A majority of patients admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) require some form of respiratory support. In the case of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), the patient often requires full intervention from a mechanical ventilator. ARDS is also associated with mortality rates as high as 70%. Despite many recent studies on ventilator treatment of the disease, there are no well established methods to determine the optimal Positive End expiratory Pressure (PEEP) ventilator setting for individual patients . A model of fundamental lung mechanics is developed based on capturing the recruitment status of lung units. The model produces good correlation with clinical data, and is clinically applicable due to the minimal number of patient specific parameters to identify. The ability to use this identified patient specific model to optimize ventilator management and lung volume recruitment is demonstrated. It thus provides a platform for continuous monitoring of lung unit recruitment and capability for a patient.
