Nasal CPAP using Hudson prongs (Teleflex Medical, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina) with a Velcro mustache is frequently used in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). We recently began to use these prongs in our unit as a means of providing CPAP. We report on two premature infants who required bag and mask ventilation while on Hudson prongs secured with a Velcro mustache. Effective ventilation was achieved only after removing the mustache.
