Alveolar ventilation during high-frequency ventilation (HFV) was estimated from the washout of the positron-emitting isotope (nitrogen-13-labeled N2) from the lungs of anesthetized paralyzed supine dogs by use of a positron camera. HFV was delivered at a mean lung volume (VL) equal to the resting functional residual capacity with a ventilator that generated tidal volumes (VT) between 30 and 120 ml, independent of the animal's lung impedance, at frequencies (f) from 2 to 25 Hz, with constant… CONTINUE READING
