Noninvasive Positive-Pressure Ventilation

  • Rajesh Chawla

Noninvasive positive-pressure ventilation (NIPPV) augments spontaneous ventilation using the tight-fitting nasal or oronasal mask without endotracheal intubation. This can be used in a large number of conditions if there is no contraindication. The application of NIPPV should not delay clinically indicated endotracheal intubation.
