This bench and human study compared large and small helmets with face mask (FM) for delivery of noninvasive positive pressure ventilation. A lung simulator was employed, and the human study involved six healthy subjects. We evaluated a continuous high-flow (CPAPHF), low flow (CPAPLF), ventilator (CPAPVENT) CPAP, and pressure support ventilation (PSV 10 and 20 cmH2O). In the human study we used CPAPHF, CPAPVENT, and PSV 5 cmH2O. PEEP was 5 cmH2O. In the bench study during CPAP we measured the… CONTINUE READING
