High-intensity non-invasive positive pressure ventilation for stable hypercapnic COPD

By Wolfram Windisch, Moritz Haenel, Jan H Storre and Michael Dreher


Background: The objective of the present analysis is to describe the outcomes of high-intensity non-invasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) aimed at maximally decreasing PaCO2 as an alternative to conventional NPPV with lower ventilator settings in stable hypercapnic COPD patients
