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 3

Airway pressure protocol after randomization. 20/0, 20/5, and 20/10 represent peak inspiratory pressure (cm H2O)/positive end-expiratory pressure (cm H2O). FmCPAP, continuous positive airway pressure via a full face mask and ventilation, where P0 and P5 represent continuous positive airway pressure 0 and 5 cm H2O applied prior to induction of general anesthesia; nCPAP, continuous positive airway pressure via a nasal mask and ventilation.
