Non-Invasive CPAP by Helmet Setup for COVID-19

WARNING

Please always maintain total gas flow above 50 L/min at all times to avoid CO2 rebreathing. These helmets are designed for hyperbaric O2 delivery. They do not include a relief valve; undetected loss of gas supply can result in asphyxiation. Patients who are not alert and collaborative need to be closely monitored. Consider intubation if the patient is agitated.
