A randomised controlled trial of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) vs non invasive ventilation (NIV) vs standard therapy for acute pulmonary odema (ACPO)

 

Aim

To determine whether non invasive ventilation reduces mortality and whether there are important differences in outcome associated with the method of treatment (CPAP or NIPPV).

Trial Design

Multi centre randomised controlled trial of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) vs non invasive ventilation (NIV) vs standard therapy for acute pulmonary odema (ACPO)
