A few case reports22,23 have also shown successful use of NIPPV with face mask in comatose state.
Conclusion: The results of this study suggest that the combination of early extubation and NIPPV is a good alternative.
NIPPV has been tested in the last few years, Nava and colleagues 8 in a randomized clinical trial, compared NIPPV or IMV in 50 patients having failed spontaneous ventilation trials and observed shorter ventilation time and lower mortality with the use of NIPPV.
We assessed the use of NIPPV during weaning from mechanical ventilation in post cardiac surgery patients in an ICU in our own circumstances and setup and compared this mode of ventilation to IMV by analyzing cardiac and respiratory parameters, clinical course, and complications.
At that moment, if the patients had failed SBT, they will be put into one of the two studied groups i-e either NIPPV or IMV (control mode of ventilation).
The current practice parameters recommend initiating NIPPV when the patient's FVC reaches 50 percent predicted or the patient complains of shortness of breath [4].
We recommend NIPPV be initiated at the earliest possible time point, with the highest level of ongoing support to encourage compliance.
Given the lack of high-quality data regarding potential benefit to patients, we have been cautiously optimistic regarding our own patient population and plan on retrospectively reviewing survival compared with NIPPV patients matched appropriately in the near future.
Conclusions: As results of ten years of clinical experience at our UTSIR, NIPPV was shown to be well tolerated, effective in improving arterial blood gases and useful in avoiding intubation in most ARF episodes non-responsive to standard therapy.
While the FVC is the tool that often is used to qualify ALS patients for NIPPV, FVC alone may not adequately measure early respiratory insufficiency in the ALS population.
Land's fourth visit on June 19, 2003, revealed a drop in his FVC, though it still was not low enough to qualify for NIPPV.
Land's nocturnal oximetry test, however, qualified him to begin NIPPV on June 21, 2003.
