Non-invasive ventilation (NIV), the provision of ventilatory assistance without an artificial airway, has emerged as an important ventilatory modality over the last 20 years. Delivery of pressured air at a certain level through a nasal or oro-nasal mask improves oxygenation and reduces ventilatory muscle fatigue. The equipment consists of a ventilator (typically a CPAP or BiPAP machine) with tubing, headgear, nasal or facial mask, filter and humidifier (Figure 1). In this article, we will discuss the medical literatures that support the use of NIV safely and effectively on the general medical floor to treat respiratory failure secondary to acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure (CHF).
