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.

Our journey to redefine ventilation continues. Tuesday evening Prof. Dr. med. Dietmar Enk spoke at the Spring Symposium in Gent, Belgium. Topics were ventilation method FCV® and energy minimalization. During day time, there were various clinical demonstrations....
