Chronic airflow limitation and acute respiratory failure

At frequencies of 60 to 140 cycles/min, EHFO was able to decrease CO2 and improve oxygenation in all of a group of 10 patients with chronic airflow limitation in incipient respiratory failure (ALS.a.a.dy.etal,., 1992). Thus EHFO can provide ventilatory support in patients with severe chronic airflow limitation and respiratory failure, avoiding the need for intubation while eliminating CO 2 and improving sputum clearance. Another study showed that EHFO produced greater improvement in gas exchange and hemodynamic measurements when compared with positive-pressure ventilation in patients with acute respiratory failure.
