Indications for High-Frequency Jet Ventilation
High-frequency jet ventilation (HFJV) is a relatively recent technique of mechanical ventilation that consists of the intermittent gas delivery from a high-pressure source through a small-bore catheter placed in the airway [1, 2]. The original concept of jet ventilation in clinical practice has been introduced in 1967 by Sanders to augment ventilation during bronchoscopic procedures. In 1977, Klain and Smith showed that jet ventilation delivered at frequencies up to 200/min can support adequate gas exchange .
