AbstractMany aspects of ventilatory management in patients with ARDS are still controversial and one of the major controversies is should HFO or CMV ideally be used to manage this patients. As shown by David et al. when the two approaches to ventilatory support are applied using similar principles the physiologic outcomes appear to be similar. With both approaches the use of lung recruitment maneuvers early in ARDS (1 to 3 day) after hemodynamic stabilization in patients without baratrauma is promising. The key to managing ARDS regardless of mode is to use an open lung protective ventilatory strategy. It is not the mode that makes the difference, it is the approach used to apply the mode!
