Berry et al. Percutaneous transtracheal ventilation in an obstructed airway model in post apnoeic sheep. Br J Anaesth. 2014

In post-apnoeic sheep, Dr. Berry and colleagues demonstrated that Ventrain provided stable oxygenation and effective ventilation at low airway pressures during emergency percutaneous transtracheal ventilation in critically obstructed airways. Manujet provided effective temporizing oxygenation in this situation with hypoventilation necessary to minimize barotrauma risk.
