Lung protective ventilation strategies are recommended in acute respiratory distress syndrome to avoid ventilator associated lung injury, a recently characterized complication of mechanical ventilation. High-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) is an unconventional ventilation strategy which may achieve this goal. We reviewed our experience with HFOV in six severely burned patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. The mean age (+/- SD) of the patients was 34 +/- 13 years, and the… CONTINUE READING
