High frequency oscillatory ventilation in acute respiratory failure.

Abstract

High frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) has emerged over the past 20 years as a safe and effective means of mechanical ventilatory support in patients with acute respiratory failure. During HFOV, lung recruitment is maintained by application of a relatively high mean airway pressure with superimposed pressure oscillations at a frequency of 3 to 15Hz… (More)
