HFOV with VG on VN500

Recommended Posts

Has anyone know where I could find safety data if using Vg with HFOV and the VN 500 ventilator , there seems to some sites utilizing this style of HFOV but I am unable to find any prelim data on safety and clincal use.

John, I have collected some data on this subject with colleagues from Japan and Poland, who have been using HFOV with VG on the VN 500. We have two abstracts at the PAS meeting in Vancouver on this very subject, so please come to Vancouver and find out. Or read the abstracts when they come out. The data are focusing on what VT is needed for normocapnia, not specifically on safety, because using VG should increase safety of HFOV by avoiding inadvertent hyperventilation.

Stay tuned,
