Endotracheal tube was passed to all patients and was connected to NIPPV (BiPAP ST, ResMed) via connector tube.
Decreased consciousness is known as a contraindication to the use of NIPPV in general because it is thought that this therapy does not help the uncooperative patient and it is also not safe because of the risk of pulmonary aspiration and difficulty in managing bronchial secretions mainly because of depressed cough reflex.
Patients in the experimental group were extubated and placed on NIPPV, whereas other patients (the control group) returned to IMV.
Results: Of 60 patients who failed T-piece trials, 30 patients were placed on NIPPV and 30 on (IMV).
As we developed our system of care in the VA system, we attempted to identify barriers to NIPPV utilization in our patients.
The concept of early NIPPV is not novel and there is evidence to support implementation.
A recent systematic review of NIPPV
in severe stable COPD patients was conducted by Kolodziej and coworkers .
6%) consecutively admitted for ARF to our Respiratory Division during the study period received NIPPV in addition to standard therapy, according to the predetermined routinely used criteria.
3%) did not tolerate NIPPV because of mask discomfort, while the remaining 342 (M: 240, F: 102); median (interquartiles) age: 74.
also is covered by insurance if nocturnal oximetry is lower than 88% for 5 or more continuous minutes (Cigna Healthcare Medicare Administration, 2004).
The use of NIPPV
in the controlled mode results in laryngeal aperture narrowing and may decrease the delivered tidal volume during NIPPV
