INTRODUCTION The use of noninvasive positive-pressure mechanical ventilation (NPPV) has been investigated in several acute respiratory failure situations. Questions remain about its benefits when used in weaning patients from invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV). The objective of this study was to evaluate the use of bi-level NPPV for patients who fail weaning from IMV. METHODS This experimental randomized clinical trial followed up patients undergoing IMV weaning, under ventilation for more… CONTINUE READING
