NIV has been shown to improve daytime arterial blood gases and the symptoms associated with respiratory failure in patients with a chest wall disorder.1

  • Improved gas exchange with increased PO2 and decreased PCO2
  • Improved hemodynamics with decreased pulmonary artery pressure and increased right ventricular function
  • Reduced work of breathing
  • Normalised sleep patterns with fewer apneic episodes.
  • Fewer hospital admissions
  • Improved quality of life
  • Relief from dyspnoea
