Randomized trial of high-frequency jet ventilation versus conventional ventilation in respiratory distress syndrome.

To compare high-frequency jet ventilation (HFJV) with pressure-limited time-cycled conventional ventilation (CV), we randomized 41 infants with clinical and radiographic evidence of respiratory distress syndrome during the first day of life to receive either HFJV or CV. Standardized ventilatory protocols were used for 48 hours, after which CV was… CONTINUE READING
