Slide: 2 of 25

Outline of Material

The material in this presentation covers the results and conclusions from a systematic comparative effectiveness review entitled Noninvasive Positive-Pressure Ventilation (NPPV) for Acute Respiratory Failure: Comparative Effectiveness. It begins with an introduction to acute respiratory failure and the role of NPPV in managing acute respiratory failure. It also covers methods used to plan and execute the systematic review, clinically important questions the review sought to answer, results of the review, evidence-based conclusions about relative effectiveness and safety of the currently used NPPV modalities for acute respiratory failure, gaps in knowledge, and the future research needs uncovered by the systematic review.
