BACKGROUND Early studies have found better clinical efficiency when a nebulizer was used with noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV), compared with spontaneous breathing without NPPV. However, very limited research addressed factors that might affect aerosol delivery. This study aimed to investigate the influence of exhalation valves and nebulizer positions on aerosol delivery during NPPV. METHODS We determined the efficiency of aerosol delivery in patients receiving NPPV with a… CONTINUE READING
