High-Frequency Ventilation Summary

Description: Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).

Also Known As: High Frequency Oscillation Ventilation; High Frequency Positive Pressure Ventilation; High Frequency Ventilation; Ventilation, High Frequency; High Frequency Ventilations Show All >>
