We describe simple high-frequency oscillation systems that incorporate a CO2 absorber and supply O2 on a need basis. These systems have the advantage of easy control of mean airway pressure and airway hydration and negligible loss of oscillatory tidal volume. Experiments done at constant tidal volume showed that as frequency (and hence total ventilation… CONTINUE READING
