Spraider et al. Improved ventilation and lung recruitment in flow-controlled ventilation (FCV) compared to pressure-controlled ventilation (PCV) – A prospective, randomized porcine study. Abstract presented at ESICM 2019 and AIC 2019.

Evone In a randomized porcine study, Spraider and colleagues demonstrated that FCV significantly improved gas exchange and maintained better lung aeration during 10 hours of ventilation, as compared to pressure controlled ventilation (PCV). Ventilation settings for...

Barnes et al. 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...
