To examine the effects of varying inspiratory/expiratory ratio (I/E) on cardiorespiratory function during high-frequency oscillation (HFO), 11 saline-lavaged rabbits were ventilated at I/E = 1:2, 1:1.5, 1.5:1, and 2:1 in a paired comparison to a baseline of I/E = 1:1. HFO was delivered by a SensorMedics model 3100 oscillator at a frequency of 10 Hz. Pressure amplitude and proximal mean airway pressure (PPaw) were held constant as I/E was varied from baseline to the experimental I/E. During each paired observation, PaO2, PaCO2, cardiac output, blood pressure, and distal mean airway pressure (DPaw) were measured. We found that as I/E was increased or decreased from 1:1, no significant changes in PaO2, PaCO2, blood pressure, or cardiac output occurred. We conclude that in this model, varying I/E has no significant effect on oxygenation, ventilation, or cardiovascular function.
