Schmidt et al. Improved lung recruitment and oxygenation during mandatory ventilation with a new expiratory ventilation assistance device: Eur J Anaesthesiol. 2018 Oct;35(10):736-744
The workgroup of Prof. Schumann was the first to execute a comparative study, evaluating a commonly applied VCV protocol with FCV® mode by Evone. This study in healthy pigs shows that FCV® improves lung aeration via elevated mean tracheal pressure and consequently improves arterial oxygenation (+10%, P=0.002) at unaltered positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) and peak inspiratory pressure (PIP), while using a lower minute volume (-21%, P=0.04). Moreover, these findings suggest the FCV® mode provided by Evone is a new approach for protective lung ventilation.
