This article shows that volume-targeted ventilation is physiologically more logical than pressure-limited ventilation, and is associated with a reduced risk of pneumothorax, hypocarbia, duration of ventilation, death or bronchopulmonary dysplasia, and severe intraventricular hemorrhage. Therefore, it should now be adopted as the main mode for mechanical ventilation of preterm neonates.
