Systematic review and cost-effectiveness analysis of pre-hospital non-invasive ventilation for acute respiratory failure

Acute respiratory failure occurs when heart or lung disease develops or worsens suddenly and prevents a person from maintaining oxygen levels in the blood. The person is then at high risk and needs emergency treatment. Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is a potentially useful treatment that can be delivered by paramedics in an ambulance, but it is costly because ambulances need to be fitted with NIV equipment and paramedics trained in its use. This project will survey all the available research to make an estimate of how many lives could be saved by routinely providing pre-hospital NIV on NHS ambulances.
