The article presents a commentary on the study, which concluded that noninvasive positive-pressure ventilation (NIPPV) increased risk for death in respiratory failure after extubation. The addition of NIPPV to standard medical therapy for acute respiratory failure (ARE) may reduce endotracheal intubation and mortality rates. Current evidence supports the use of NIPPV as adjunctive therapy in patients with ARF caused by severe exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) as the standard of care, reducing both endotraceal intubation and mortality.
