COPD is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the world and is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Despite progress in the treatment of symptoms and prevention of acute exacerbations, few advances limit disease progression or decrease mortality. The only interventions known to reduce mortality in COPD are smoking cessation and long-term oxygen therapy in patients with resting hypoxemia. There remains significant interest in the role of NIV at home. However, identifying which patients might benefit, the duration and severity of support is unknown. Recent guidelines address these issues, and the evidence will be presented. Lecturer: Robert Owens, MD. This presentation is sponsored by an unrestricted educational grant from Vapotherm.
