Dataset for BathRC Ventilation model

This dataset contains:
(a) Experimentally measured pressure-flow data from testing of ventilator circuits with a variety of configurations and circuit components. These data are useful in characterising circuit components and validating ventilation circuit models, in particular the BathRC model.
(b) A spreadsheet implementing the BathRC model to compute inspiration restrictor requirements for ventilating two patients from a single ventilator.

Dual Ventilation, Differential multi-ventilation, Ventilator splitting, Ventilator sharing, Patient matching, COVID-19, Coronavirus, Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, ARDS, anaesthesiology
