Independent Lung Ventilation and One Lung Ventilation


The application of the independent lung ventilation (ILV) in adults has been described by Carlon and co-workers in 1978 and subsequently by other investigators. In 1983 Hedenstierna and coworkers using a bilumen tube suitable for prolonged intubation, and two Servo Ventilator 900 B (Siemens) adapted for synchronization, treated a wide range of clinical conditions. Following this experience, the potential use of simultaneous independent lung ventilation (sILV) in patients of the pediatric age group has been investigated.
