iCPAP is a little program that allows to calculate FiO2 by defining flow rates during ventilation.
It is extremely useful when performing ABG analysis especially during Non Invasive Ventilation.
On the left column Air Flow liters/min can be chosen and on the right column are picked Oxygen Flow liters/min: Total Flow and FiO2 are the calculated using this well known formula:
((Air Flow *21) + (Oxygen Flow * 100)) / (Air Flow + Oxygen Flow).
It's author's belief that medical practitioners such as Nurses, Respiratory Therapists or Physicians may really appreciate this item.
