With regard to mechanical ventilation, describe the mechanism of action of flow and pressure triggering and list the advantages and disadvantages of both.
|Pressure||triggered by a patient-generated drop in pressure, from PEEP.||
|Flow||Triggered by a patient-generated change in fresh gas flow though a circuit||
