THE USE OF NONINVASIVE POSItive-pressure ventilation (NPPV) in acute respiratory failure to avoid the need for endotracheal intubation was first reported in the late 1980s by Meduri et al. The apparent successful application of this form of ventilation in this and other case series has led to more intensive scrutiny of this technology in randomized controlled trials. It appears that successful avoidance of endotracheal intubation through the addition of NPPV may depend on the population studied… CONTINUE READING
