jet ventilation


Also found in: Wikipedia.
A technique used during tracheal reconstructive surgery, in which a catheter is passed through the endotracheal tube into the distal main stem bronchus; a small tidal volume is delivered through the catheter at a high rate—60 to 150 ‘breaths’/min—to maintain lung expansion, alveolar ventilation, and oxygenation

We present the use of transtracheal jet ventilation in two uncooperative patients with a difficult airway.
A Lewy suspension apparatus was utilized and a 14-gauge needle was inserted for jet ventilation.
Many different anaesthetic techniques have been used for tracheal resection ranging from spontaneous ventilation to jet ventilation (1,2,4,14).
For example, Warner et al (1) compared stone movement and shock requirements inpatients receiving intermittent positive pressure ventilation (IPPV) via an endotracheal tube (ETT) with those receiving high frequency jet ventilation (HFJV).
Many techniques have been described including the use of high-frequency jet ventilation (HFJV).
A needle inserted into the trachea via the cricothyroid membrane permitted successful intermittent jet ventilation with oxygen.
During surgical repair, sterile endotracheal tubes or jet ventilation catheters can be placed into main bronchi under direct vision (4,13).
When an impinging jet ventilation system is used for room heating, the warm supply jet will project to, and then separate from, the floor and rise upward to the ceiling under the effect of buoyancy, leading to a limited spreading distance.
High frequency jet ventilation (HFJV) is a recognized ventilation technique for surgical and endoscopic interventions on the bronchial tree, in particular after a foreign body aspiration (FBA).
Perioperatively ventilation is challenging, some of the methods described in textbooks are1) Oral intubation and cuff distal to the fistula 2) Insertion of a sterile single lumen tube into the opened trachea distal to the area of resection, 3) One lung ventilation in cases of low lying fistulas 4) High Frequency Jet Ventilation through the stenotic area, or even 5) Use of Cardiopulmonary bypass.
