BACKGROUND Refinement of ventilatory techniques remains a challenge given the persistence of chronic lung disease of preterm infants. METHODS To test the hypothesis that proportional assist ventilation (PAV) will allow to lower the ventilator pressure at equivalent fractions of inspiratory oxygen (FiO(2)) and arterial hemoglobin oxygen saturation in ventilator-dependent extremely low birth weight infants in comparison with standard patient-triggered ventilation (PTV). DESIGN Randomized… CONTINUE READING
