Abstract Objective: The impact of the use of mask continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on patients with acute respiratory distress in the prehospital, rural setting has not been defined. The goal was to test the use of CPAP using the Respironics® WhisperFlow® CPAP in patients presenting with acute respiratory distress. This was a collaborative evaluation of CPAP involving a rural EMS agency and the regional medical center. Patient outcomes including the overall rate of intubation-both in… Expand
When Pressure is Positive: A Literature Review of the Prehospital Use of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure
TLDR
Available evidence suggests that the use of CPAP therapy in the prehospital environment may be beneficial to patients with acute pulmonary edema as it can potentially decrease the need for endotracheal intubation, improve vital signs during transport to hospital, and improve short-term mortality. Expand
Assessment of the addition of prehospital continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) to an urban emergency medical services (EMS) system in persons with severe respiratory distress.
TLDR
The addition of CPAP to an urban emergency medical service respiratory distress protocol did not improve physiologic variables and patients with apparent continued ventilatory assistance appeared to have improved rates of intubation and ICU LOS. Expand
The Impact of Prehospital Continuous Positive Airway Pressure on the Rate of Intubation and Mortality from Acute Out-of-hospital Respiratory Emergencies
TLDR
The findings may be specific to the EMS system but suggest that further large-scale, randomized, controlled trials may be warranted to firmly establish the benefit of prehospital CPAP. Expand
Relationship between intubation rate and continuous positive airway pressure therapy in the prehospital setting.
TLDR
In patients with acute respiratory disorder, there was a relationship between CPAP therapy and the decreased intubation rate andCPAP therapy was feasible in prehospital management of patients with respiratory distress. Expand

TLDR
The studies included in this review showed a reduction in the number of intubations and mortality in patients with ARF who received CPAP in the prehospital setting, which is critical to establishing the evidence base underpinning this therapy before ambulance services incorporate CPAP as routine clinical practice.

TLDR
This study suggests that CPAP use by PCP-level paramedics may be feasible, and finds no significant difference in the compliant use of prehospital CPAP between paramedicstrained to the PCP level and those trained to the ACP level. Expand
Effect of out-of-hospital noninvasive positive-pressure support ventilation in adult patients with severe respiratory distress: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Out-of-hospital administration of NIPPV appears to be an effective therapy for adult patients with severe respiratory distress. Expand
Pre-hospital non-invasive ventilation for acute respiratory failure: a systematic review and cost-effectiveness evaluation.
TLDR
The economic analysis showed that pre-hospital CPAP was more effective and more expensive than standard care, with an incremental cost-effectiveness ratio of £20,514 per quality-adjusted life-year (QALY) and a 49.5% probability of being cost-effective at the£20,000-per-QALy threshold. Expand
Prehospital CPAP Therapy by Emergency Physicians in Patients with Acute Respiratory Failure due to Acute Cardiogenic Pulmonary Edema or Acutely Exacerbated COPD.
TLDR
In physician-supported EMS, CPAP using the Boussignac system is an effective additional measure for ACPE or COPD, and for causal ACS, the risk of therapy failure increases. Expand
Cost-utility of non-invasive mechanical ventilation: Analysis and implications in acute respiratory failure. A brief narrative review.
TLDR
Although there is great variation in the data drawn from the literature, NIV seems to be a cost-effective tool, especially in specific patients (those with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) for whom the addition of NIV improves outcomes and has a positive impact on this expenditure. Expand

Effectiveness of Prehospital Continuous Positive Airway Pressure in the Management of Acute Pulmonary Edema
TLDR
The prehospital use of CPAP is feasible, may avert the need for endotracheal intubation, and may reduce short-term mortality. Expand
Prehospital use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for presumed pulmonary edema: a preliminary case series.
TLDR
For patients with acute respiratory failure and presumed pulmonary edema, the prehospital use of CPAP is feasible and may avert the need for ETI, and future controlled studies are needed to assess the utility and cost-effectiveness of prehospital CPAP systems. Expand
EMS transports for difficulty breathing: is there a potential role for CPAP in the prehospital setting?
TLDR
A small but not significant percentage of patients are optimal candidates for a prehospital trial of CPAP, and transport times would appear to justify this type of intervention. Expand
Estimates of Cost-Effectiveness of Prehospital Continuous Positive Airway Pressure in the Management of Acute Pulmonary Edema
TLDR
Through a theoretical analysis which modeled the costs andclinical benefits of implementing CPAP in an urban EMS system, prehospital CPAP appears to be a cost-effective treatment. Expand

Continuous positive airway pressure facilitates spontaneous breathing in weaning chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients by improving breathing pattern and gas exchange
TLDR
CPAP helps severely ill COPD patients sustain spontaneous breathing by promoting slower, deeper breathing and thus facilitating carbon dioxide elimination, according to the results. Expand
