We take positive action to detect SDB and have used NPPV and CPAP, which have been useful for treating SDB, in patients during the critical stage in advanced clinical practice such as in liver resection or liver or lung transplantation, cardiac surgery, intensive chemotherapy, etc.
NPPV may not be effective in breaking this cycle of deterioration which ultimately leads to reintubation (15,16).
set out to define the characteristics of patients who did not tolerate NPPV to provide objective criteria for making the decision to discontinue treatment and switch to mechanical ventilation.
CONCLUSION: These results suggest that adding NPPV to ST for an AAE improves clinical signs and lung function faster than ST alone.
One issue that accompanied the increase in NPPV use was prolonged length of stay in critical care due to lack of knowledge and available resources for medical-surgical nurses to manage the care of these patients.
The health care workers who had contact with the index patient's mucous membranes or respiratory secretions were significantly less likely to be exposed to SARS if they wore gloves, and of the 22 workers who were present during the patient's NPPV, those who stayed in the room less than 30 minutes were significantly less likely to be exposed.
Each of these 4 healthcare workers, but only 1 of the 18 healthcare workers who remained well, reported being present in the room for >31 minutes during the administration of NPPV (OR 105, 95% CI 3 to 3,035, p [less than or equal to] 0.
The type of ventilator designed exclusively for delivery of NPPV is called the pressure target ventilator.
Rentals (home mechanical ventilation, hospitals): New rental shipments of NPPV are around 1,400 units annually, including model changes.
The purpose of NPPV is to reduce the need for endotracheal intubation and the use of invasive positive pressure ventilation, thereby minimizing the hazards associated with these interventions.
In patients with decompensated hypercapnic respiratory failure, the use of NPPV can decrease mortality and the need for intubation.
