Noninvasive Ventilation and High-Flow Nasal Cannula Might Help Avoid Intubation for Hypoxemic Respiratory Failure

Patricia Kritek, MD A meta-analysis showed lower mortality with noninvasive ventilation compared with standard oxygen therapy. Comparisons of effectiveness among noninvasive ventilation (NIV), high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC), and standard oxygen therapy have yielded conflicting results in patients with respiratory failure who do not require immediate endotracheal intubation. Researchers performed a meta-analysis of... Read more..
