From: Continuous positive airway pressure and ventilation are more effective with a nasal mask than a full face mask in unconscious subjects: a randomized controlled trial

Figure 1

Subject enrollment and randomization. Four subjects in group nCPAP and one in group FmCPAP were excluded because of equipment failure. Three subjects in group FmCPAP were excluded because of protocol violations (body mass index >35 kg/m2) (n = 1), inadequate seal of face mask (n = 1), and persistent spontaneous breathing (n = 1). Numbers of patients are indicated in parentheses. CPAP, continuous positive airway pressure; FmCPAP, full face mask continuous positive airway pressure/ventilation group; nCPAP, nasal continuous positive airway pressure/ventilation group; P0, initial continuous positive airway pressure level 0 cm H2O, P5, initial continuous positive airway pressure level 5 cm H2O.
