High frequency jet ventilation for severe haemoptysis during extracorporeal circulation.

Abstract

Two patients are described in whom fulminant haemoptysis occurred during extracorporeal circulation. The use of high frequency jet ventilation resulted in a dramatic decrease of blood loss from the tracheal tube, avoiding the need for more aggressive management.
