Hfov And Hemodynamic Compromise

Recommended Posts

I have thought that impeded hemodynamics (during HFOV) is related to over-expansion of the lungs, i.e. only at distending pressures exceeding what is needed to get an optimal lung volume.


But, I think you're after a threshold for intrathoracal pressure, which can be achieved with high settings, despite yet suboptimal lung volumes ?


Look forward to hear from others on this topic!
