Volume-targeted ventilation in infants born at or near term
ADC Fetal & Neonatal Edition, 07/10/2012
Chowdhury O et al. – Low volume–targeted (VT) levels (4 ml/kg) during VTV increase the work of breathing (WOB) in ventilated infants born at term or near term. The results suggest that a VT level of 6 ml/kg could be used to reduce the WOB.
