exp date isn't null, but text field is


This document is a guide to the theory and practical techniques for the use of High Frequency Oscillatory ventilation (HFOV) in the neonate. This mode of ventilation may be useful in settings where conventional modes are failing to achieve adequate ventilation or may result in significant pulmonary injury, or where HFOV is considered to be better suited to underlying lung pathophysiology. The decision to use HFOV is individualized and must be made by experienced senior clinicians.
