Respiratory pump failure is a condition which the respiratory system can not meet the metabolic demand because of the inability of respiratory muscles to ventilate the lungs without any pulmonary pathology. Two cases of respiratory pump failure(myasthenia gravis and Guillian-Barre syndrome) had been treated with controlled and assisted ventilation using the Bennet MA II ventilator. Large tidal volume with high peak flow rate was given to permit leakage of gases during inspiration when the patients were ventilated with CMV with asaistance. This made the patients capable of communicating with persons by phonation which was the greatest advanage of this mode of assisted ventilation.
