Assalamualaikum & Dear all..
It has been a long time not updating my blog, and I think it's almost 6 months. Not to say I'm busy, but rather common excuse used by others. In this post I would like to share about NIV[noninvasive ventilation] in ED.Some students still confuse about the terminology and setting used in NIV. For example, CPAP [continuous positive airway pressure] which is class 1 evidence in APO. Some ventilator already has CPAP mode, but some don't.Actually you can use BPAP mode to become CPAP. We understand that, in BPAP there will be IPAP,EPAP and RATE, if you put IPAP=0,RATE=0 [spontaneous mode] and you set EPAP=10, it's automatically become CPAP.Hope this can clear the cloud in our minds...Cheers
