Table 2 Ventilator setting pre- and post-high frequency percussive ventilation (HFPV)

From: Haemodynamics and oxygenation improvement induced by high frequency percussive ventilation in a patient with hypoxia following cardiac surgery: a case report

  VGRP pre HFPV VGRP after HFPV
TV (mL) 600 750
MArP (cm H2O) 24 20
Respiratory 12 12
rate (rate/min)   
FiO2(%) 1 0.6
PEEP (cm H2O) 14 14
PIP (cm H2O) 38 34
Inspiratory-expiratory rate 1:1.5 1:1.5
  1. After 12 hours of HFPV, tidal volume (TV) increased from 600 to 750 mL, mean airway pressure (MArP) lowered from 18 to 16 cmH2O, fractional inspiratory oxygen (FiO2) from 1 to 0.6%, peak inspiratory pressure (PIP) from 38 to 36 cmH2O.
