HFOV and HFJV Course in Edmonton 30th of April 2014

Recommended Posts

“Old and New Concepts in the Application of High Frequency

Oscillatory and High Frequency Jet Ventilation”



HFOV and HFJV remain important modes of respiratory support today. Experience has shown that the

successful use of HFOV and HFJV is more operator-dependent than other modes of ventilation. This may be

due to difficulty in achieving and maintaining optimal lung volume, and also because of the need to tailor

ventilation to the individual patient’s lung disease.

Despite multiple clinical trials and other experimental data, the optimal application of HFOV and HFJV

remains challenging, even for experienced users.

Recognizing this, the Div. of Neonatology, Dept. of Pediatrics, Univ. of Alberta would like to invite you to the

inaugural hands-on interactive courses in the use of HFOV and HFJV, from which we hope both experienced

and novice users will benefit. We have prepared a program of lectures, hands-on workshops and interactive



When and Where

The course will be held in the Edmonton Clinic Health Academy, University of Alberta, on Wednesday April

30th 2014.

Animal laboratory demonstration of physiological principles underpinning HFOV

• Demonstration of recruitment using a plastinated lung

• Demonstration of physiological concepts in a test lung

• Oscillator set up including iNO administration

• Oscillator operation and trouble shooting

• High frequency jet ventilation demonstration

The animal laboratory workshop is designed for experienced HFOV users and limited to 30 registrants. The

animal laboratory workshop involves a demonstration of HFOV in anesthetized piglets. No delegate should

feel obliged to attend this workshop.
