Pilotstudie zur nicht-invasiven Messung des intrinsischen PEEP bei Patienten mit stabiler chronisch obstruktiver Lungenerkrankung (COPD) unter nicht-invasiver Beatmung

Die nicht-invasive Beatmung wird in der Therapie des COPD-bedingten chronischen oder akuten respiratorischen Versagens eingesetzt. Durch Applikation von CPAP kann der intrinsische PEEP kompensiert und dadurch die respiratorische Muskelanstrengung reduziert werden. Eine exakte Messung des individuell...
