Intermittent positive pressure breathing  picture

Intermittent positive pressure breathing is a technique used to provide short-term or intermittent mechanical ventilation for the purpose of augmenting lung expansion, delivering aerosol medication, or assisting ventilation. A caveat, however, is that Intermittent positive pressure breathing is not the therapy of first choice for delivering aerosol or a method of lung hyperinflation to be used in spontaneously breathing patients when other less expensive therapies can reliably meet the clinical objectives prescribed for the patient.
