ABSTRACT: We studied healthy and saline lavaged rabbits during high frequency oscillatory ventilation to determine what combination of frequency (f), tidal volume (Vt), and mean airway pressure (Paw) produced the lowest peak-to-peak alveolar pressure amplitude (Palv) and physiologic blood gas tensions. Sinusoidal volume changes were delivered through a… CONTINUE READING
