Abstract:
Life-saving treatment for acute respiratory failure (ARF) traditionally mandated endotracheal intubation and positive pressure ventilation. However, this method of mechanical ventilatory assistance has its complications; hence the use of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) has emerged in recent times to become the preferred treatment modality 1 . The success of NIV depends on careful selection of patients who meet the well-established criteria for NIV and demonstrate no contraindications. Previous studies have shown that application of NIV on patients with an acute exacerbation of COPD may reduce the risk of intubation by almost 70% 2 .
