3 Action Items Review
- Chair
Status/Discussion: All action items from the F2F were completed except for #2 where various members were going to apply the modality semantics to various sample modes.


Action(s): Complete the test operational mode analysis for presentation & evaluation at the next WebEx session.

4 Mode Semantics
- Group
  • The F2F summaries by Marks and Schluter were reviewed. In general, though no additional presentations were made during this meetings, company-internal reviews of the mode semantics had been conducted and the feedback was generally positive - though it was clear that additinal semantics would have to be defined.
  • An additional attribute was agreed: Assist/Support Breath Augmentation (though the final title was TBD)
  • The need for coordinating these semantics with the definitions coming from the ISO TC121/SC3 working group was discussed and agreed. Steve Dain indicated that he would provide some background information for that group's activities + will report on the results of the upcoming London meetings and discuss at the TG's 7/10 WebEx session.
  • Label vs. component semantics or mode attributes - there was another discussion regarding whether specific labels should be used (e.g., mandatory vs. spontaneous or vendor-specific mode labels); it was emphasized that this Vent TG activity is focused on identifying the component semantics that could be combined to express the meaning behind a given ventilator operational model label, but that those labels are not part of this standardization activity.



  • (Group) Complete analysis of their assigned vent modes per the proposed component semantics.
  • (Dain) Provide background info to group re. ISO TC121/SC3's mode terminology work
  • (Dain) Provide an update of SC3's deliberations after the London meetings and then discuss during the PCD Vent TG's 7/10 WebEx session.
  • (Cooper) Update wiki pages for this group's activities.
  • (Cooper) Provide vent anotations analysis per previous standardization work
