NOTE 1 For the purposes of this document, such an environment is referred to as a critical care environment. High-frequency ventilators for this environment are considered life-sustaining.
NOTE 2 For the purposes of this document, such a high-frequency ventilator can provide transport within a professional healthcare facility (i.e., be a transit-operable ventilator).
NOTE 3 A high-frequency ventilator intended for use in transport within a professional healthcare facility is not considered as a ventilator intended for the emergency medical services environment.
- intended to be operated by a healthcare professional operator;
- intended for those patients who need differing levels of support from artificial ventilation including ventilator-dependent patients; and
- capable of providing more than 150 inflations/min.
There are three principal designations of HFV:
- high-frequency percussive ventilation [HFPV, with a typical HFV frequency of (60 to 1 000) HFV inflations/min];
- high-frequency jet ventilation [HFJV, with a typical HFV frequency of (100 to 1 500) HFV inflations/min]; and
- high-frequency oscillatory ventilation [HFOV, with a typical HFV frequency of (180 to 1200) HFV inflations/min and typically having an active expiratory phase].
Additionally, HFV designations can be combined together or with ventilation at rates less than 150 inflations/min.
