  • noninvasive positive support ventilation (NPSV)
Active Comparator: BiPAP + ST
Bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP) and standard medical therapy (ST)
Device: BIPAP
Non-invasive mechanical ventilation (BIPAP)
Other Name: Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure ventilation
Active Comparator: ST

Other: standard therapy (ST)
standard medical therapy
Other Name: Medical treatment of acute cardiogenic pulmonary oedema

Detailed Description:

To evaluate the effect of adding continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) or bilevel positive airway pressure (BiPAP) to standard medical therapy (ST) on intensive care unit (ICU) stay, hospital stay, mortality, need for endotracheal intubation, partial arterial O2 tension (PaO2), intrapulmonary shunt, alveolar-arterial (A-a) oxygen gradient, and cardiac output in patients admitted to the respiratory intensive care unit (ICU) or cardiac care unit (CCU) with acute CPE with gas exchange abnormalities and to evaluate the impact of heart failure type on the outcome of different therapeutic schedules.

    • Acute myocardial infarction necessitating thrombolysis
    • Cardiac or respiratory arrest
  2. Severe chronic renal failure
  3. Pneumothorax.
  4. Contraindication of non invasive ventilation (NIV)
