The role of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) in treating COPD

With chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), you may have trouble breathing properly. Your lungs may not absorb enough oxygen (O2), and they may have trouble getting rid of the waste gas carbon dioxide (CO2). The most frequently used type of ventilation in hospital and at home is non-invasive ventilation (NIV).  With NIV, you wear a mask attached to an air tube to a non-invasive ventilator. You may be prescribed NIV for daily use as well as during sleep.
