Medical - Medical: Instruments / ventilatore (ventilazione artificiale)
English term or phrase: (built-in) leak
Da un manuale per operatori di ventilatori per ventilazione artificiale:

Do not use a patient circuit with a ***leak accessory*** for ventilator-dependent patients.

Occlusion, check circuit: Occurs in leak configuration when the leak level is not sufficient to flush the CO2 from patient exhalation.
The built-in leak in the mask may be obstructed. The built-in leak for the mask is not sufficient for the settings.

Cosa ne pensate?
Queste "leak masks" sono la stessa cosa delle "vented masks" ? Hanno una valvola/un'apertura di sfiato?
