Comparative studies of IPPV and HFPPV with PEEP in critical care patients. II: Studies on intrapulmonary gas distribution.


The ventilatory patterns of a conventional ventilator for volume-controlled ventilation (SV-900) and a low-compression ventilator utilizing the pneumatic valve principle for pressure/flow-generated, volume-controlled ventilation (system H) were studied in a lung model and in 10 patients with respiratory failure. System H was used at frequencies of 20 (H-20… (More)
