ObjectivesFew data exist about patient-triggered ventilation techniques in neonatal critical care. Our aim was to compare pressure-limited synchronised intermittent positive pressure (or assist/control) ventilation (sIPPV) in the classical time-cycled (TC-sIPPV) mode against flow-cycled (FC-sIPPV) modality. In this latter, typical sIPPV full respiratory support is provided but both the initiation and the end of inflation are determined by the infant's spontaneous respiratory efforts by using airway flow changes.
