The respiratory mechanics monitors are an excellent teaching tool.

Real-time visualization of the patient’s condition enables teachers to graphically show the meanings of the different parameters, ways of measuring, and the effects of the different ventilation modes and their configurations.

The available information on the patient’s respiratory mechanics is significantly expanded due to the analysis of esophageal pressure. For instance: when visualizing the patient’s efforts in real-time or when measuring the intrinsic PEEP for each respiration.
