Current study reported good success rate of NPPV in acute exacerbation of post tuberculosis pulmonary sequelae.
(2) Recently, the number of ALS patients using noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) has increased as the treatment of choice in the management of respiratory disturbance.
(4) found that, in ARDS patients treated with NPPV, the intubation rate ranged from 30% to 86%, with a pooled intubation rate of 48% (95% CI, 39% to 58%), and the mortality rate ranged from 15% to 71%, with a pooled mortality rate of 35% (95% CI, 26% to 45%).

These two patients were initially weaned from NPPV on days 4 and 7, but ILD worsened on days 6 and 8, respectively.
After minimum 15 min rest, the procedure was repeated with NPPV. NPPV was applied via a face mask with intermittent positive pressure (IPPV-mode), tidal volume 10 mL/kg ideal weight, positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) = 0 cm [H.sub.2]O, fraction of inspired oxygen 0.21, and respiratory frequency of 10-12/min (Evita 4, Drager Medizintechnik GmbH, Lubeck, Germany).
At the time of extubation, patients were randomised to receive either NPPV or conventional therapy (oxygen by nasal prongs or mask) by opening a sealed envelope containing a code provided by the principal investigator.
NPPV has been tried in patients with ALI/ARDS due to malaria (13).
set out to define the characteristics of patients who did not tolerate NPPV to provide objective criteria for making the decision to discontinue treatment and switch to mechanical ventilation.
A trial of non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) may be considered in some circumstances (Pilbeam 2006).
The role that non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) can play in an AAE remains unanswered although it is frequently used in the clinical setting.
