The article focuses on a study on the randomized trial of high frequency oscillatory ventilation compared with the conventional mechanical ventilation. The researchers found no significant differences in neurodevelopment scores or report of respiratory symptoms at 2 years of age between infants randomized to the two modes of ventilatory support. Furthermore, they found no differences in other complications of prematurity between the two groups, including cranial ultrasound abnormalities.
