In the presence of high flow bronchopleural fistula or pneumothorax, HFJV facilitates alveolar recruitment and increases the mean pressure in the airway, but decreases peak pressure and the leak.
Literature concerning the interest of HFJV in the management of patients with pneumothorax is scarce.
Postoperatively, patients undergoing HFJV spent slightly less time in the postoperative recovery area, but this was not significantly different from the CMV (95.
Warner and colleagues in 1988 were the first to investigate the potential benefits of HFJV for SWL.
We found that the group undergoing HFJV during SWL with the Seimens[R] Lithostar Modularis, a third-generation lithotripsy machine, required significantly less total shocks (3754 vs.
Given that the HFJV group required less total shocks, one might have expected to find the group undergoing HFJV would enjoy decreased operating room time.
In 1988, Whelan and colleagues found significantly greater fragmentation of material using an experimental HFJV model.
Prospective randomized trials would be helpful in delineating the real benefits of HFJV during SWL with newer lithotripsy units.
