Abstract

Obstructive pulmonary diseases are a major cause of mortality and morbidity. Acute respiratory failure in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is one of the common reasons for admission to the intensive care unit (ICU). Use of noninvasive ventilation has revolutionized the treatment and outcome of COPD patients.
