OBJECTIVES High-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) with a high lung volume strategy is an experimental mode of ventilating preterm infants aimed at achieving maximal alveolar recruitment Higher mean airway pressures are used during HFOV than during intermittent positive-pressure ventilation (IPPV), and the intrathoracic volume increase is relatively constant. Both factors increase the risk to depress organ blood flow and diuresis. Our objective was to test the hypothesis that high lung… CONTINUE READING
