Pulmonary vascular resistance is an important determinant of cardiac output after the Fontan procedure and is adversely affected by elevated mean airway pressure. High-frequency jet ventilation (HFJV) is an alternate form of mechanical ventilation which supports gas exchange at lower mean airway pressure. This study was performed to determine if HFJV could lower mean airway pressure and pulmonary vascular resistance and result in an increase in cardiac output after the Fontan procedure.
