NIV After Cardiothoracic Surgery Reviewed

2016 19 Oct

A systematic review and meta-analysis of 14 randomised controlled trials (RCTs), including 1740 patients, that compared noninvasive ventilation (NIV) with usual care after cardiothoracic surgery found minimal effect overall of NIV on mortality risk, endotracheal intubation, respiratory, cardiovascular and other complications, respiratory rate, heart...

Helmet-Based Ventilation Had Better Results than Facemask for ARDS Patients

2016 17 May

Results of a trial of helmet-based ventilation have shown that using a transparent air-tight helmet instead of a facemask helped critically ill patients breathe better and reduced their need for mechanical ventilation. In the trial, patients who were treated with helmet ventilation spent less time in the intensive care unit and lower mortality. The... Read more

Respiratory Failure: Is Noninvasive Ventilation Effective?

2015 07 Oct

A multicentre study finds that early noninvasive ventilation, compared with oxygen therapy alone, did not reduce the risk of 28-day mortality among immunocompromised patients admitted to the ICU with hypoxaemic acute respiratory failure. The study is published by JAMA to coincide with its presentation at the 28th annual congress of the European Society... Read more
