2 Overview High Frequency Ventilation (HFV)
High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation (HFOV) and how it works When do we use HFOV Basic Parameters for HFOV How HFOV prevents Ventilator Induced Lung Injury (VILI)

3 High Frequency Ventilation
Provides augmented gas distribution By means of numerous gas transport mechanisms. Convection, transit time, direct ventilation Pendalluft effect Taylor dispersion Asymmetric velocity Cardiogenic Mixing Molecular diffusion Collateral Ventilation

4 Convection, Transit Time and Direct Ventilation
is the transport of air flow at a constant equal velocity that is parabolic in shape. Transit Time: Airflow to the alveoli will vary in proportion to the length of the Bronchial airways. Direct Ventilation: Results from bulk air flow to alveoli that have a much shorter transit time.

5 Asynchronous Filling Taylor Dispersion Pendalluft Effect
At the end of expiration: Alveoli with short time constants (fast alveoli units) are empty. Alveoli with longer time constants (slow alveoli units) are still emptying Asynchronous filling: Gases will move from slow units to fast units because of pressure gradients between the alveoli. The relationship between: Axial velocity profile (Turbulence) the diffusion of gases in motion and the branching network of the lungs.

6 Asymmetry Cardiogenic Mixing Airflow moving through the airways moves in a u-shape formation. At the center of the lumen air will move at a faster velocity, than air that is closest to the wall. Asymmetry Occurs with rapid respiratory cycles. Gases (O2) at the center of the lumen will advance further into the lungs as gases (CO2) along the wall of the airway moves out towards the mouth. As the heart beats the heart provides additional peripheral mixing by exerting pressure against the lungs during contraction of the heart. This pressure promotes the movement of gas flow through the neighboring parenchymal regions.

7 Collateral Ventilation
Molecular Diffusion Collateral Ventilation Maintaining a constant distending pressure with HFV within the lungs along with movement of gas molecules promotes gas diffusion across the alveolar membrane, at a faster rate. Collateral ventilation increases with HFV due to connections between the alveoli (Pores of Kohn)


9 Oscillation/Frequency Hz
How does it work? Small tidal volumes at high frequency are generated by low amplitude pressure oscillations. These tidal volumes that are approximately equal to dead space. High mean airway pressures (PEEP) provides distending pressure. HFOV can provide 5-15 Hz equal to (900 breaths/min. What is HFOV HFOV has all of the elements of high frequency ventilation discussed previously. Also provides a bias oscillatory gas flow used to generates positive and negative pressure fluctuations referred to as amplitudes or (Delta-P) Oscillation/Frequency Hz Amplitude MAP/PEEP

Potential Advantages of HFOV are  1. Uniform inflation of the lung fields 2. Improves gas exchange  3. Improves lung mechanics  4. Enables stable lung inflation o Allows recruitment of alveolar space o Reduces the risk of volutrauma  o Reduces risk of high peak airway pressure (PIP) o Reduces the risk of airway stretching o Improves V/Q matching 5. Reduces air leak  6. Decreases the amount of inflammatory mediators and alveolar edema 7. Prevents the development of hyaline membrane disease (HMD)

18 CMV VS HFOV During CMV, there are swings between the zones of injury from inspiration to expiration. During HFOV, the entire cycle operates in the “safe window” and avoids the injury zones. INJURY HFOV CMV INJURY
