CPAP therapy has been utilised in medicine for over 100 years. However, the use of CPAP in EMS is comparatively new and is not a standard of care in every system. The introduction of CPAP to EMS ranks near the top as one of the most effective treatments introduced to the pre-hospital environment in the last fifteen years. With that said, some EMS systems have limited the use of CPAP to congestive heart failure (CHF) or for adults only; when, in fact, any patient in respiratory distress should be considered a candidate for CPAP. The goal of CPAP is to reduce the work-of-breathing and buy time for more definitive treatments to work.
