    • Negative pressure ventilation*
    • Alternative Gas supply (not room air)
    • Positive pressure ventilation
    *Negative Pressure ventilation is accomplished by drawing air from the lung chamber creating a negative pressure in the chamber so that the lung draws air rather than having a set volume of air forced into the lungs (positive pressure). Negative pressure ventilation is the most physiological and slows edema formation.
