Cardiopulmonary resuscitation interface adapted for postextubation continuous noninvasive ventilatory support

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The authors report that a new oral interface designed for cardiopulmonary resuscitation and use during anesthesia permitted the successful extubation of an "unweanable" 27-yr-old woman with nemaline rod myopathy to continuous noninvasive ventilatory support. She had failed two previous extubation attempts. Tracheotomy and institutional care were avoided as a result.
