They therefore were treated with minimal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) (less than 10 cm HsO, no mechanical ventilatory support) to maintain arterial oxygen saturation above 90 percent with inspiratory oxygen fraction less than 0.5 using a home-made CPAP system or respirators (Bear 5 ventilator, Bear Medical Systems, Inc, Riverside CA or 7200a Ventilator, Puritan Bennett Corporation, Los Angeles, Ca).’
