Acronyms not on the wiki
#1
Two acronyms that I've come across that I couldn't find on the wiki or definitions page are PS and LL. PS is in the context of BiPAP, and LL maybe has something to do with leaks? Llamas? Lippy lions?

I would post a link to the acronym page, but I can't because I'm new. Maybe a partial path will be accepted?

PS = Pressure Support
LL = Large Leak

PS is Pressure Support, the difference in provided pressure between inspiration and expiration.

LL is Large Leak, a leak beyond what the machine can compensate for.  Over this, event detection and therapy is compromised.

Since PS for Power Supply is rarely used, it isn't something we are worried about.
