Background: In this study, we compare the effects of high frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) with those of lung-protective volume-controlled ventilation (VCV) on cerebral perfusion, tissue oxygenation, and cardiac function with and without acute intracranial hypertension (AICH).

Methods: Eight pigs with healthy lungs were studied during VCV with low tidal volume (V(T): 6 ml kg(-1)) at four PEEP levels (5, 10, 15, 20 cm H(2)O) followed by HFOV at corresponding transpulmonary pressures, first with normal ICP and then with AICH. Systemic and pulmonary hemodynamics, cardiac function, cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP), cerebral blood flow (CBF), cerebral tissue oxygenation, and blood gases were measured after 10 min at each level. Transpulmonary pressures (TPP) were calculated at each PEEP level. The measurements were repeated with HFOV using continuous distending pressures (CDP) set at TPP plus 5 cm H(2)O for the corresponding PEEP level. Both measurement series were repeated after intracranial pressure (ICP) had been raised to 30-40 cm H(2)O with an intracranial balloon catheter.

Results: Cardiac output, stroke volume, MAP, CPP, and CBF were significantly higher during HFOV at normal ICP. Systemic and cerebral hemodynamics was significantly altered by AICH, but there were no differences attributable to the ventilatory mode.

Conclusion: HFOV is associated with less hemodynamic compromise than VCV, even when using small tidal volumes and low mean airway pressures. It does not impair cerebral perfusion or tissue oxygenation in animals with AICH, and could, therefore, be a useful ventilatory strategy to prevent lung failure in patients with traumatic brain injury.

Initiation of high-frequency oscillatory ventilation and its effects upon cerebral circulation in pigs: an experimental study.

Br J Anaesth 2006 Oct 16;97(4):525-32. Epub 2006 Aug 16.

Department of Anaesthesiology, Institute of Neurosurgical Pathophysiology, Johannes Gutenberg-University, Mainz, Germany.

Background: Current practice at high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) initiation is a stepwise increase of the constant applied airway pressure to achieve lung recruitment. We hypothesized that HFOV would lead to more adverse cerebral haemodynamics than does pressure controlled ventilation (PCV) in the presence of experimental intracranial hypertension (IH) and acute lung injury (ALI) in pigs with similar mean airway pressure settings.

Methods: In 12 anesthetized pigs (24-27 kg) with IH and ALI, mean airway pressure (P(mean)) was increased (to 20, 25, 30 cm H(2)O every 30 min), either with HFOV or with PCV. Read More

Department of Anesthesiology, Intensive Care Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Pain Management, University Medical Center Göttingen, Göttingen, Germany.

Background: Recent clinical studies have not shown an overall benefit of high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV), possibly due to injurious or non-individualized HFOV settings. We compared conventional HFOV (HFOV) settings with HFOV settings based on mean transpulmonary pressures (P) in an animal model of experimental acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

Methods: ARDS was induced in eight pigs by intrabronchial installation of hydrochloric acid (0. Read More

Department of Anesthesiology, Johannes Gutenberg-University, Mainz, Germany.

Introduction: The objective was to study the effects of a lung recruitment procedure by stepwise increases of mean airway pressure upon organ blood flow and hemodynamics during high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) versus pressure-controlled ventilation (PCV) in experimental lung injury.

Methods: Lung damage was induced by repeated lung lavages in seven anesthetized pigs (23-26 kg). In randomized order, HFOV and PCV were performed with a fixed sequence of mean airway pressure increases (20, 25, and 30 mbar every 30 minutes). Read More

Purpose: The present study was designed to evaluate pulmonary and systemic hemodynamics and blood gas changes on switching from conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) to high-frequency oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) in a large animal model of acute lung injury.

Methods: Eleven anesthetised sheep chronically instrumented with vascular monitoring were prepared. Animals received oleic acid (0. Read More
