Pressure Controlled Ventilation for Pediatric Facemask

From an early view study in Pediatric Anesthesia: At an inspiratory pressure of 13 cmH2O, pressure‐controlled ventilation may be more effective than manual ventilation in preventing gastric insufflation while providing stable ventilation in children.

This is also a useful maneuver to free both hands to maintain a patent airway without needing another staff member to squeeze the breathing bag, and could usefully be further studied in adults in difficult mask-ventilation scenarios. Modern anesthesia machines provide such modes as Pressure Control and Pressure Control-Volume Guaranteed.
