A prospective, randomized, cross-over trial was performed to compare the efficacy of nasal intermittent positive-pressure ventilation with nasal continuous positive airway pressure in infants of less than 32 weeks of gestation. Continuous positive airway pressure was delivered at end-expiratory pressures of 4 cm H2O, while peak pressures of 20 cm H2O and end-expiratory pressures of 4 cm H2O were used during nasal intermittent positive-pressure ventilation at ventilatory rates of 20 breaths per… CONTINUE READING
