Beyond Diagnosis

  • Jing Liu


Neonatal respiratory failure due to various reasons is the main cause of neonatal hospitalization, and mechanical ventilation is indispensable for respiratory failure rescue therapy and treatment success. Mechanical ventilation therapy can improve lung ventilation and gas exchange, correct hypoxemia and hypercapnia, improve hypoxia, and buy valuable time for the treatment of the primary diseases causing respiratory failure. Currently, frequently used ventilation modes include conventional mechanical ventilation (CMV) and high-frequency ventilation (HFV).
