There is no agreement to define the target FiO2 to adopt in the lung recruitment phase during HFOV in preterm infants. We report our experience of an optimal lung volume strategy (OLVS), defined as FiO2≤0.25 during the recruitment phase, in a cohort of neonates with gestational age (GA) ≤27 weeks treated with elective HFOV for respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) between July 2006 and September 2008.
