ABSTRACT
This article presents information on a study related to noninvasive positive pressure ventilation that reduces intubation and length of intensive care unit stay in acute respiratory failure. Randomized controlled trials that included 60% of patients with acute hypoxemic respiratory failure not associated with cardiogenic pulmonary edema or an exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and who did not require immediate ventilatory support; and which compared noninvasive positive-pressure ventilation added to standard therapy (ST) with ST alone. Study quality was assessed using 11 validity criteria, including randomization, concealment, and blinding.
