Reason

During dual-limb invasive ventilation, a patient cough of sufficient magnitude to drive circuit pressures above 95 cmH2O for longer than 150 milliseconds may cause a "Vent Inoperative 1008: Machine and Proximal Pressure Sensors Failed" alarm, which will cause the V680 ventilator to cease therapy.
