BACKGROUND The effects of nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on the lung parenchyma of patients with COPD, to our knowledge, have never been assessed by high-resolution CT (HRCT) scanning. METHODS HRCT scans were obtained at the apex, hilum, and basis of the lungs at functional residual capacity while on spontaneous respiration and at the end of CPAP trials of 5 cm water (H(2)O), 10 cm H(2)O, and 15 cm H(2)O in 11 stable patients with COPD and eight healthy volunteers.
