Noninvasive proportional assist ventilation for acute respiratory insufficiency. Comparison with pressure support ventilation.

Abstract

Noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) is usually applied using pressure support ventilation (PSV). Proportional assist ventilation (PAV) is a newer mode that delivers assisted ventilation in proportion to patient effort. We hypothesized that PAV for NPPV would support gas exchange and avoid intubation as well as PSV and be more comfortable and… (More)
