PURPOSE:Background: The inspiratory pressure is often set by COPD patient’s comfort to promote the success rate during noninvasive positive pressure ventilation. However, the physiological responds of this setting is not clear. Objectives: To assess the effect of the comfortable level (baseline PS) of the COPD patient during noninvasive pressure support ventilation (PSV).
