Summary
Brief summary
Patients who are suffering from a variety of respiratory conditions benefit from continuous
positive airway pressure (CPAP) which is a form of Non-Invasive Ventilation (NIV). Some
patients find the temperature of the breathing gas difficult to tolerate. The aim of this
study is to compare comfort of healthy volunteer participants while being given CPAP at
different temperatures.
