The use of high-frequency ventilation during general anaesthesia: an update [version 1; referees: 3 approved]

Piotr Harbut, Jacob Freedman, Karolina Galmén, Jan G. Jakobsson
Various forms of high-frequency ventilation (HFV) have been described. HFV is broadly defined as artificial ventilation of the lungs with sub-deadspace tidal volumes delivered using supra-physiological frequencies. HFV has been used in anaesthesia and intensive care for special procedures and conditions since the 1960s. Clinical interest in the use and the technical evolution of HFV has developed over time. There is a renewed interest in HFV for avoiding parenchymal movement during stereotactic tumour ablation. The present paper aims to give an overview of the fundamental physiology, technical aspects, and clinical challenges of HFV in ablation procedures during general anaesthesia, where HFV is used to minimise the movements of the ablation target.
