ABSTRACT Home noninvasive ventilation (NIV) is used in COPD patients with concomitant chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure in order to correct nocturnal hypoventilation and improve sleep quality, quality of life, and survival. Monitoring of home NIV is needed to assess the effectiveness of ventilation and adherence to therapy, resolve potential adverse effects, reinforce patient knowledge, provide maintenance of the equipment, and readjust the ventilator settings according to the changing… 

European Respiratory Society guidelines on long-term home non-invasive ventilation for management of COPD

The task force conditionally supports the application of LTH-NIV to improve health outcome by targeting a reduction in carbon dioxide in COPD patients with persistent hypercapnic respiratory failure.

Domiciliary Noninvasive Ventilation: Strategies for Improving Adherence to Home Use

Domiciliary noninvasive ventilation is increasingly used in patients with chronic respiratory failure, and discharge plans and training on the equipment, illustrating potential problems and identifying possible solutions are essential.

The Site of Oxygen Delivery Into a Home Ventilator Affects Recorded Volumes

The monitored VT may be inaccurate if oxygen is added with a connector in the circuit, which may have consequences on both the individual level and collective level (ie, big data analysis).

Titration and follow‐up for home noninvasive positive pressure ventilation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: The potential role of tele‐monitoring and the Internet of things

Reliable tele‐monitoring and transmission of clinical parameters from home to hospitals have prompted the development of IoT‐based home NIPPV.

An overview of noninvasive ventilation in cystic fibrosis

The physiologic basis for NIV use in CF is summarized, indications for initiation are described, and how to order and monitor patients on NIV is discussed, as well as suggestions on how to reduce risks such as infection.

Continuous remote monitoring of COPD patients—justification and explanation of the requirements and a survey of the available technologies

An overview of the available technologies for the remote monitoring of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients, together with the most important medical information regarding COPD in a language that is adapted for engineers is presented to bridge the gap between the technical and medical worlds.

Long-term non-invasive ventilation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): 20

This 2021 guideline update represents an important shift from the previous recommendation against the use of long-term NIV in most patients with COPD and chronic hypercapnia, toward its suggested use.

High-flow nasal cannula oxygen therapy versus non-invasive ventilation for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients after extubation: a multicenter, randomized controlled trial

Among COPD patients with severe hypercapnic respiratory failure who received invasive ventilation, the use of HFNC after extubation did not result in increased rates of treatment failure compared with NIV, and HFNC also had better tolerance and comfort than NIV.

Long-term non-invasive ventilation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): 2021 Canadian Thoracic Society Clinical Practice Guideline update

This 2021 guideline update represents an important shift from the previous recommendation against the use of long-term NIV in most patients with COPD and chronic hypercapnia, toward its suggested use.

Noninvasive Ventilation in COPD

A systematic literature search in the PubMed database was performed including clinical trials, meta-analysis and reviews published between January 2017 and March 2019 to give an update on NIV in acute and chronic COPD patients.



What Does Built-In Software of Home Ventilators Tell Us? An Observational Study of 150 Patients on Home Ventilation

Built-in software of home ventilators provides the clinician with new parameters, some of which are a useful adjunct to recommended tools for monitoring NIV and may contribute to a better understanding of residual hypoventilation and/or desaturations.

Home Mechanical Ventilation for COPD: High-Intensity Versus Target Volume Noninvasive Ventilation

Switching subjects from well-established HI-NIV to target VT NIV shows no clinical benefits in chronic hypercapnic COPD, and targetVT NIV might offer some physiological advantages in breathing pattern and might be beneficial in some individual patients.

Polysomnography in stable COPD under non-invasive ventilation to reduce patient–ventilator asynchrony and morning breathlessness

The subgroup of COPD patients treated by home NIV, who present marked deventilation dyspnea and unrewarded efforts may benefit from adjustment of ventilator settings under PSG or polygraphy.

Noninvasive Ventilation in Chronic Respiratory Failure: Effects on Quality of Life

Improvements in HRQoL were associated with improvements in PaO2 and dyspnea in COPD patients, and with total hours of daily ventilator use, improvement in Dyspnea, pressure support and expiratory positive airway pressure in RTD patients.

Leaks can dramatically decrease FiO2 on home ventilators: a bench study

During application of NIV on home ventilators, leakage can dramatically decrease inspired FiO2 making it less effective, so it is important to know theFiO2 dispensed when NIV is used for COPD at home.

Predictors of survival in COPD patients with chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure receiving noninvasive home ventilation.

In patients with COPD and CHRF, nutritional status, hyperinflation, and BE, which turned out to be reliable and consistent markers inCHRF, were independent prognostic factors for mortality.

Two-year home-based nocturnal noninvasive ventilation added to rehabilitation in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients: A randomized controlled trial

The addition of NIPPV to pulmonary rehabilitation for 2 years in severe COPD patients with chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure improves HRQoL, mood, dyspnea, gas exchange, exercise tolerance and lung function decline.

Outcome of patients with stable COPD receiving controlled noninvasive positive pressure ventilation aimed at a maximal reduction of Pa(CO2).

Controlled NPPV using a mean inspiratory pressure of 28 cm H2O is well tolerated over longer periods and can improve blood gas levels and lung function.
