Slide: 7 of 25

Noninvasive Positive-Pressure Ventilation for Managing Acute Respiratory Failure (3 of 3)

NPPV is contraindicated in some patients, including those with cardiopulmonary arrest or shock (where greater airway control is required), those with facial trauma (where the interface [e.g., mask] cannot be used appropriately), those with severely impaired consciousness, those with high aspiration risk, and those who are unable to cooperate, protect the airway, or clear secretions.
