Can all ICU and transport ventilators provide NIPPV?

Most modern ventilators provide some form of NIPPV, however, there are significant differences in performance among devices. Much of the difference in performance is attributable to ability to compensate for large leaks (e.g. around the mask seal) and trigger latency. Newer ventilators may perform significantly better than older ventilators.
