Facemask ventilation is often insufficient for patients in respiratory distress trying to avoid intubation. Helmet ventilation is an alternative, and this video illustrates the equipment and demonstrates of how it is assembled and applied with descriptions of initial ventilator settings. In a 2016 single-center randomized trial, noninvasive ventilation (NIV) delivered by helmet significantly reduced the intubation rate among patients with ARDS compared with the patients receiving NIV by face mask.
