Hello you all.
I have a question.
On ventilators such as the Drager Evita XL f you have the option of the mode, APRV.
I know usually APRV is used with Inverse I/E Ratios, but, has anyone ever seen High Frequency APRv where the Thigh, and Tlow are set to like .10 seconds to create a high frequency of like 312 or so?
I was fooling with my online Drager ventilator simulator, and realized I could set the pressures the Phigh, and Plow high enough to get really good mean Irway pressures.
do you think this might be a good ventilator Lung Rest Strategy when an oscillator is not available?
THANK YOU, AND GOD BLESS.
