Conventional gas ventilation, liquid-assisted high-frequency oscillatory ventilation, and tidal liquid ventilation in surfactant-treated preterm lambs.

This study was designed to compare the efficacy and potential protective or injurious effects of tidal liquid ventilation (TLV), liquid-assisted high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (LA-HFOV), and high PEEP conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) in neonatal respiratory distress syndrome. Preterm lambs (124-126 days gestation), prophylactically treated… CONTINUE READING
