HFOV noninvasive

Recommended Posts

Yes, HFOVn.

In our medical service, we have not yet begun that experience.

But we have some interesting references:

Yoder, B., Albertine, K. and Null Jr., D: High-frecuency ventilation for non-invasive respiratory suppert of neonates in Seminars in Fetal & Neonatal Medicine, xxx (2016) 1-12 (in press).

I have read about Nasal HFOV.. I'm still wondering though.. How can such a tiny tidal volume (in a HFOV) give through the nose and hoping it will open the lung? I think the tiny pressure will be just lost in the way, particularly if the baby open its mouth.. Please enlighten me.. ☺️☺️
