High-frequency ventilation is indicated when acute hypoxemic respiratory failure is associated with an ongoing air leak. This report describes the successful use of high-frequency oscillatory ventilation in a child with pulmonary contusions and traumatic pulmonary pseudocysts who experienced severe air leak syndrome on conventional mechanical ventilation. 
Management of an infant with diffuse bullous pulmonary lesions using high-frequency oscillatory ventilation
High frequency oscillatory ventilation is a safe technique that may be used in the operating room in cases where conventional ventilation failed to provide satisfactory gas exchange and provided optimal oxygenation and ventilation as well as vital signs stability.
Ventilation of oscillatory high frequency in barotrauma caused by acute respiratory distress syndrome
High frecuency ventilation is useful in most of the patients presenting this syndrome complicated with refractory barotrauma, and it is an unquestionable therapeutical option.
Primary traumatic pulmonary pseudocysts: a rare entity.
Diagnosis and treatment of traumatic pulmonary pseudocysts.
Traumatic pulmonary pseudocysts are often missed by chest radiography, particularly when it is obtained in the supine position, whereas computed tomographic scan allows the identification of these lesions in all cases.
Post-traumatic lung pseudocysts: two case reports in ICU patients.
The clinical course of traumatic lung pseudocyst is usually benign, unless complications such as pneumothorax or infection of the cavitary lesion arise, and these lesions are more common in children and young adults.

Objective: Pulmonary contusion is the usual manifestation of lung parenchymal injury after blunt chest trauma. With deceleration these parenchymal lacerations can result in cavities known as primary


Low mortality rate in adult respiratory distress syndrome using low-volume, pressure-limited ventilation with permissive hypercapnia: A prospective study
To evaluate the outcome in patients with severe adult respiratory distress syndrome managed with limitation of peak inspiratory pressure to 30 to 40 cm H2O, low tidal volumes, spontaneous breathing using synchronized intermittent mandatory ventilation from the start.
Pulmonary parenchymal findings in blunt trauma to the chest.

Chest roentgenograms of 200 patients who sustained blunt trauma to the chest were reviewed and found edema and congestion, atelectasis, patchy, hemorrhagic infiltration, formation of traumatic lung cavities, and intrapulmonary hematomas.
Traumatic pulmonary pseudocysts.
Traumatic pulmonary pseudocysts and paramediastinal air cyst: two rare complications of blunt chest trauma.
Traumatic pulmonary pseudocysts and paramediastinal air cysts due to closed chest trauma are very uncommon and must be differentiated from lung abscesses after infected hematomas, specific cavities, or congenital pulmonary cysts.
Three cases of cavitary pulmonary lesions following closed chest trauma in children have been presented and the clinical picture is, in general, benign with hemoptysis the most common finding.
Laceration of the lung following blunt trauma
It was found that cases treated with early thoracotomy did not require any pulmonary resection and in others, lack of prompt diagnosis and a conservative approach led eventually to loss of lung parenchyma.
High-frequency jet ventilation in neonatal pulmonary hypertension.
It is suggested that high-frequency jet ventilation can reduce airway pressure and PaCO2 in neonates with persistent pulmonary hypertension but does not appear to improve outcome.
Traumatic lung and paramediastinal pneumatoceles.
awareness of this fact will explain the not uncommon finding of a cavitary lesion, often containing an air-fluid level, on initial emergency room radiographs of patients who have sustained closed chest trauma.
