We studied flow changes, airway pressures, breathing patterns and subjective sensation during tidal breathing on continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in 21 acutely ill asthmatic patients and 19 controls. The measurements obtained at various levels of CPAP were compared to the value at zero end-expiratory pressure. The fractional inspiratory time (TI/TTOT) was significantly reduced in both the patients and the control group (p less than 0.01). Patients noticed the best sensation of comfort… CONTINUE READING
