2012/2013 The use of High Frequency Percussive Ventilation (HFPV) is still debated although this type of non-conventional ventilation has proven effective and safe in patients with acute respiratory failure. In the clinical practice, HFPV is not an intuitive ventilatory modality and the absence of real-time delivered volume monitoring produces disaffection among the physicians. Avoiding the "volutrauma" is the cornerstone of the "protective ventilation strategy", which assumes a constant monitoring of inspiratory volume delivered to the patient. Currently the system capable of delivering HFPV is the VDR-4® (Volumetric Diffusive Respirator), which provides only a...
