Key Takeaways CPAP use during early hospital admission can help decrease disease progression and respiratory failure in patients diagnosed with COVID-19. Researchers have established ways to safely modify CPAP machines for patients to use as ventilators, decreasing the number of patients that end up needing mechanical ventilation. According to  a study  out of the U.K., Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is emerging as a lifesaving device for those in the early stages of COVID-19.  Researchers from Lancaster University found that in 206 patients seeking care at the Royal Albert Edward Infirmary in Wigan, England, when CPAP treatment was initiated within four days of hospital admission, survival probability increased to over 73%.
