This technique is said to be completely effective and is used to treat the patients with acute respiratory disease syndrome (ARDS). This is called the same method to improve the oxygen levels in the human body. The study is published in the year 2002 in the European Respiratory Journal.

The study explained about how to improve the oxygenation and how to improve the respiratory mechanics along with increasing the lung volume and reduce the amount of atelectatic regions.
