    Non-invasive ventilation refers to delivery of assisted ventilation without the use of advanced airways such as endotracheal tube (ET) or a tracheostomy tube. It can be through positive or negative pressure devices and continuous or intermittent. Non-invasive ventilation can be used in acute...
