Neurally adjusted ventilatory assist vs pressure support ventilation during noninvasive mechanical ventilation: another physiologic evaluation to consider?


Neurally adjusted ventilatory assist (NAVA) is an original approach to noninvasive ventilation that can improve patient-ventilator interaction and may infl uence physiologic outcomes 1 3 because the electrical activity of the diaphragm, a pneumatically independent signal, is used to control the timing and level of assist provided, regardless of the… (More)
