Exposure to noise during continuous positive airway pressure: influence of interfaces and delivery systems.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We measured noise intensity and perceived noisiness during continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) performed with two interfaces (face-mask, helmet) and four delivery systems. METHODS Eight healthy volunteers received CPAP in random order with: two systems provided with a flow generator using the Venturi effect and a mechanical expiratory… (More)
