Brief communication Pressure Stability with CPAP Devices : a Bench Evaluation


Background: Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) maintains a constant pressure to reduce the patient’s work of breathing (WOB). The aim of this study was to measure the additional WOB imposed by four current CPAP devices during simulation of a difficult, but commonly encountered, clinical situation. Method: A flow contour of a patient under CPAP and… (More)
