Abstract

Objective: To compare noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) vs. invasive mechanical ventilation in AIDS patients with Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (PCP)-related acute respiratory failure (ARF). Design: A single-center, prospective, case-control trial. Setting: An ICU of a private tertiary hospital specialized in infectious disease. Patients: Forty-eight AIDS patients with severe PCP-related ARF needing mechanical ventilation. Interventions: Twenty-four patients treated with NPPV by a facial mask strictly matched with 24 patients treated with invasive ventilation by endotracheal intubation. Results: Use of NPPV avoided intubation in 67% of patients, and avoidance of intubation was associated with improved survival (100% vs. 38%; P=0.003). NPPV-treated patients required fewer invasive devices (P
