High-frequency percussive ventilation HFPV has demonstrated a potential role as a rescue option for refractory acute respiratory distress syndrome and as a method for improving inhalation injury outcomes.

This article will discuss the clinically pertinent aspects of HFPV, inclusive of high- and low-frequency ventilation.
