Abstract

BackgroundThere are no data available about effectiveness of Nasal High-flow NHFin chronic respiratory insufficiency.

MethodsEleven COPD patients with stable hypercapnia were adjusted to NHF-system with a flow of 20 l-min. After six weeks patients were switched to non-invasive ventilation NIV for another six weeks period.

ResultsNHF led to significant decreases in resting pCO2. Between the devices we found no differences in pCO2 levels.

ConclusionsNHF may thus be an alternative treatment device in stable hypercapnic COPD patients.
