Intermediate solutions to increase positive airway pressure and increase oxygen are in demand in order to keep patients off ventilators and provide an alternative means of treatment when nasal cannula fail and a patient is hypoxemic or at risk of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).  To put this in a layperson's terms, the pressure exerted by this Helmet CPAP respiratory circuit can actually keep parts of the patients' lungs open, even with very little oxygen flow.
