T. Barnes, D. van Asseldonk and D. Enk. Minimisation of dissipated energy in the airways during mechanical ventilation by using constant inspiratory and expiratory flows-Flow controlled ventilation (FCV). Medical Hypotheses 121 (2018); 167-176

Prof. Barnes, together with Van Asseldonk and Enk, provide clear theoretical evidence for lower energy dissipation in the lungs by FCV® as compared to VCV or PCV. They present a simple analysis and numerical calculations indicating that energy dissipation may be...

Heerdt et al. Automated ventilation with a novel small device based upon expiratory ventilation assistance improves hemodynamics in hemorrhagic shock. Poster Military Health System Research Symposium 2015

Dr. Heerdt and colleagues showed that a prototypical small automated ventilator based upon the EVA principle could be used to generate a controlled period of negative EEP. This resulted in improved hemodynamics relative to positive pressure ventilation (PPV) during...
