Creating Flow Mismatch with a simulator

I know in the past I stated I did not use Draeger simulators. However this Oxylog simulator is responsive and I will be using it in a few videos. This video demonstrates that with this simulator, one can create "Flow Mismatch" a patient-ventilator asynchrony common in VC-CMV.
