Answer

Either bilevel NIV or continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is recommended for patients with ARF due to cardiogenic pulmonary edema. [18]

CPAP or bilevel NIV is suggested for patients with ARF due to cardiogenic pulmonary edema in the prehospital setting. [18]

Early NIV is suggested for immunocompromised patients with ARF. [18]
