PURPOSE OF REVIEW: High-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) is an attractive alternative to conventional lung protective ventilation. Adequate gas exchange is achieved with very small tidal volumes cycling at a high mean airway pressure. This may prevent injury from inspiratory overdistention and expiratory alveolar collapse. Most patients demonstrate improvements in oxygenation ...
