PCD RTM Ventilator
Rosetta Terminology Mapping [RTM] Ventilator Task Group
In mapping ventilator / respiratory related terms for the IHE PCD RTM profile, quite a few gaps were identified. To address this issue, a task group was formed within the RTM profile group to address these needs and come up with proposals for how they should be addressed. This includes
- Establishing a more comprehensive framework or paradigm for representing ventilator operational modes
- Defining a mechanism for representing breath-to-breath annotations
- Proposing new terms & formal defintions for the remaining "gaps"
Once this analysis is complete and proposals completed, they shall be forwarded to the appropriate SDOs for further action.
Basic RTM information is located on the main RTM page.

Ventilator Operational Mode Semantic Model
A key item in the Vent TG's discussion is to identify the core semantic components that make up a ventilator's operational modality. This in turn can be used to organize a device's settings, waveform annotations, etc. It is understood that the actual labels associated to a given mode will vary from vendor's device to device, and should eventually be harmonized with related activities such as the work being done within ISO TC121/SC 3/JWG 1 (Joint with IEC/SC62D) Critical Care Ventilators. Component semantics should be flexible enough to support all of these usages, though.
Note: This is also intended to result in an update to the existing ventilator operational modality terminology standard contained in ISO/IEEE 11073-10101 Health informatics - Point-of-care medical device communication - Nomenclature document.
A vent mode discussion page details the current proposal and provides a sandbox for specifying modes using the model.
