In a prospective study we describe the delivery of small tidal volumes to extremely low birth weight (ELBW) and very low birth weight (VLBW) infants using a volume-targeted ventilation mode (VTV). Tidal volume delivery was consistent for both ELBW and VLBW infants independent of gestational age, birth weight, and the target volume.
