Dos Santos Rocha et al. Novel ventilation techniques in children. Paediatr Anaesth. 2021 Nov 27. doi: 10.1111/pan.14344. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 34837438.

In this educational review, the authors elaborate on recent progresses that have been made in the field of pediatric anesthesia, with focus on adapted and novel ventilation strategies. They highlight Ventrain with its EVA functionality as a simple, but innovative ventilation tool likely to become a valuable addition to the armamentarium in pediatric emergency and difficult airway situations. Furthermore, the authors present FCV by Evone as a novel concept to potentially lower the risk of ventilator induced lung injury (VILI) by reducing energy dissipation in the lungs. They conclude that further research is needed to evaluate the advantages of FCV for the pediatric population.
