6cmH2O continuous positive airway pressure versus conventional oxygen therapy in severe viral bronchiolitis: A randomized trial
Pediatric Pulmonology, 04/30/2012Milesi C et al.

Improvement in the respiratory distress score at 6hr was proportional to the initial clinical severity, suggesting the importance of rapid nCPAP initiation in the more severe forms of the disease.
