Abstract

Continuous positive end-expiratory pressure (CPAP) and Pressure Support Ventilation (PSV) are commonly used for the therapy of several forms of respiratory failure. CPAP and PSV can be delivered both during invasive respiratory treatment, by means of an endotracheal tube or tracheostomy, and during non invasive respiratory treatment. Non Invasive Ventilation (NIV) is commonly used for the therapy of several forms of respiratory failure (COPD, Weaning period from Invasive Mechanical Ventilation, Cardiogenic Edema,...) and the helmet could be a good new device to deliver it with a better compliance instead the common facial mask without increasing the nurses' workload.
