ABSTRACT

Updates on Recommended Use of Non-Invasive Ventilation in AHS Acute Care Facilities During the COVID-19 Pandemic   [open pdf - 325KB]

From the Key Research Questions: "1. What guidance should be given to front line clinicians when trying to decide whether to proceed with using non-invasive ventilation (NIV) for a COPD [chronic obstructive pulmonary disease] exacerbation or CHF [congestive heart failure]? 2. What is the evidence for helmet CPAP [continuous positive airway pressure] use? Is it a reasonable alternative to NIV/HHF02? 3. What guidance should be given to front line clinicians for use of ongoing CPAP or BPAP therapy on hospital wards for patients who use home CPAP or BPAP [bilevel positive airway pressure] as chronic therapy?"
