  • mortality
  • The groups did not differ for any other outcomes at any time point: respiratory indices, need for intubation (34% in the CPAP group vs 39% in the oxygen group, P = 0.5), median duration of ventilation, median ICU stay (6.5 vs 6.0 d, P = 0.4), ICU mortality (21% vs 26%, P = 0.6), and hospital mortality (31% vs 30%, P = 0.9).

  • Despite some early improvement in oxygenation and symptoms, continuous positive airway pressure was no more effective than standard oxygen therapy for the eventual need for intubation, duration of ventilation, length of hospital stay, or mortality in patients with acute hypoxemic nonhypercapnic respiratory insufficiency primarily caused by acute lung injury.

  • Conditions
  • This is particularly important as patient conditions change during the night, such as when respiratory drive is impaired during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep or when the patient moves to a supine position. (resmed.com)
  • Patient
  • ResMed's advanced data collection capabilities (device and card data storage with high-resolution flow and pressure data, percentage of spontaneous breaths, AHI, volumes, respiratory rate, synchronisation details, SpO 2 monitoring) and ResScan TM software allow clinicians to have detailed data for troubleshooting and monitoring patient progress.
