Success story of IPV 2C treatment on a 6 yr old female patient

This past February a 6 year old little girl was being treated at El Paso Children’s Hospital’s ICU with right lung pneumonia and a pig tail chest tube which is visualized on all three x-rays.  Patient’s complete history is unknown.

Initial chest x-ray was taken BEFORE High Frequency Percussive Ventilation was introduced.
