Airway Management With Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation

Summer 2022

Papalski W, Siedler J, Callaway DW. 22(2). 93 - 96. (Journal Article)


Noninvasive positive-pressure ventilation (NPPV) is a form of ventilatory support that does not require the placement of an advanced airway. The authors discuss the use of NPPV on patients who will likely benefit. The use of NPPV has reduced the need for patients to require intubation and/or mechanical ventilation in some cases, as well as benefits.
