BACKGROUND Continuous positive airway pressure is a noninvasive respiratory support technique that may prevent pulmonary complications following cardiac surgery. This study was conducted to determine the efficacy of prophylactic nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) compared with standard treatment. The primary end points were pulmonary adverse effects defined as hypoxemia (Pao(2)/fraction of inspired oxygen [Fio(2)] <100), pneumonia, and reintubation. The secondary end point was… CONTINUE READING
