Liquid Ventillation

  1. I've been reading a lot lately about Liquid Ventillation and Partial Liquid Ventillation for neonates and was wondering if anyone here has had experience with a patient receiving this type of respiratory treatment. Is it as complicated as ECMO?

    Thanks for any information you can provide.

    I think that the FDA has banned this procedure. Some hospitals were trialing it and not having good results. It isn't even on the same lines as ECMO, which is a bypass of sorts. Most places have moved to Nitric oxide therapy
