Abstract

Terminal respiratory failure was reversed in 3 patients with a combination of extracorporeal CO2 removal through a membrane lung and oxygen diffusion into the diseased lungs between mechanical breaths induced at a frequency of 2-3/min. The technique seems to prevent the pulmonary barotrauma and extrapulmonary derangements caused by conventional mechanical ventilation.
