This data was generated based on simulations of the patient-ventilator interaction in research by A. van Diepen et al. [1]. The data contains the airway pressure, flow, and volume waveforms including the labeling of patient and ventilator timings resulting from the simulations. In total, the data contains 1405 simulation runs. Subsequently, the simulated data was used in the development of patient-ventilator asynchrony detection and the evaluation of inspiratory effort estimation, in research by T.H.G.F. Bakkes et al. and A. van Diepen et al., respectively [2, 3].
