non-invasive positive pressure ventilation

non-invasive positive pressure ventilation

Pulmonology The delivery of assisted mechanical ventilation using a lightweight machine by means of a tight-fitting mask over the nose or nose and mouth. See Positive end pressure.

Adaptive Bi-Level mode is intended for non-invasive positive pressure ventilation. Described by VersaMed as a combination of pressure control and pressure support, adaptive bi-level breaths may be time, pressure or flow triggered and flow or time cycled.
The airway is paramount in emergency care and Pat Saffy and Louise and Andreas Engelbrecht deal with the difficult airway and the use of non-invasive positive pressure ventilation respectively.
Initially, at this point, non-invasive positive pressure ventilation may provide the patient's ventilatory needs.
They found a wide variation in the availability of the treatment, non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) among 264 hospitals across the UK.
Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) was used as the first MV method in 20 patients (4.6%), which was practised in only five ICUs.
Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation in patients with acute respiratory failure.
Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) has been found to be as effective as conventional mechanical ventilation in improving gas exchange in patients with respiratory failure.
These patients may be treated with non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV), e.g., mask CPAP, to avoid endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation.
Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) includes the modalities of CPAP and BiPAP and may provide benefits for patients with HF and COPD while avoiding the complications associated with mechanical ventilation.
Acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)* with dyspnoea, tachypnoea, and acute respiratory acidosis (hypercapnia and decreased arterial pH) plus at least one of the following: * Acute cardiovascular instability * Altered mental status or persistent uncooperativeness * Inability to protect the lower airway * Copious or unusually viscous secretions * Abnormalities of the face or upper airway that would prevent effective non-invasive positive pressure ventilation 3.
Effect of non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NIPPV) on mortality in patients with acute cardiogenic pulmonary oedema: a meta-analysis.
Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation was delivered for a mean period of 34.75[+ or -]10 hours in patients assigned to this group.
