Patients requiring NIV
Patients requiring NIV because of acute respiratory failure
- Documentation of practices and processes related to NIV treatmentDocumentation of practices and processes related to NIV administration in the adult intensive care unit(type of ventilator used, type of interface chosen, initial settings, organization of the care team and interactions between caregivers).
- Patient's Respiratory comfortPatient's respiratory comfort during NIV will be assessed both by the patients themselves with a visual analogic scale and by the investigator.
- Ventilatory parametersTidal volume, respiratory rate, inspiratory time, expiratory time and maximal and mean airway pressure will be measured from the continuous recording of airway pressure and flow obtained with a pneumotachograph.
