Bilevel pressure ventilators are being used increasingly to provide noninvasive ventilatory support in the management of obstructive sleep apnea, chronic ventilatory failure, and acute respiratory failure. However, the ability of these ventilators to respond to inspiratory demand without imposing expiratory loads has not been evaluated extensively. We evaluated the performance of nine bilevel pressure ventilators in a lung model, as compared with the Nellcor Puritan-Bennett 7200ae adult… CONTINUE READING
