Instead, positive pressure ventilation in which the patient’s lungs are inflated by application of positive pressure to his airways is considered as today’s dominant technology. This kind of treatment can be applied non-invasively, by use of a facial mask or a mouthpiece, or it can be given invasively by using an endotracheal tube or by use of tracheostomy. Positive pressure ventilation can be provided by using high-frequency ventilation techniques such as HFJV and HFOV. In high-frequency ventilation, the oxygenated air is delivered at high rates and small volumes to the patient’s airways, vibrating the alveoli at high frequencies to avoid injuring the lung tissue.
