Patient outcomes

Noninvasive ventilation has been shown to:

  • Improve gas exchange with increased PO2 and decreased PCO2.
  • Improve hemodynamics with decreased pulmonary artery pressure and increased right ventricular function.
  • Reduce work of breathing.
  • Normalise sleep patterns with fewer apnoeic episodes.
  • Reduce hospitalisations and improved quality of life.
  • Provide relief from dyspnea.
