abstract

  • The consensus of available studies indicates that high-frequency jet ventilation (HFJV) can adequately ventilate animals in respiratory failure, although a clear superiority to volume-cycled ventilation (VCV) cannot be established. HFJV is probably useful in the presence of airway disruption and in tracheal or pulmonary surgery. Clinical trials and additional bench and animal studies must be performed, to reach a full understanding of the potential benefits of this technique.
