Weber et al. Flow-controlled ventilation improves oxygenation in mechanically ventilated lung-healthy patients – a crossover controlled interventional trial. Abstract #3301 presented at Euroanaesthesia 2019 – Manuscript submitted
The workgroup of Prof. Schumann revealed in a crossover randomized controlled trial in lung-healthy patients a higher efficiency of ventilation when using FCV® compared to VCV, even after short-term application. With similar ventilation settings, FCV® resulted in a 9% higher arterial oxygenation and 4% lower arterial CO2 concentration (P<0.001). The mean tracheal pressure was higher during FCV® (+10 %; P<0.001). This study indicates that
FCV® may help to prevent hypoxemia during mechanical ventilation.
