Prognosis in Patients With Chronic Respiratory Failure Receiving Domiciliary Noninvasive Positive Pressure Ventilation (NPPV)

NCT ID: NCT00905476


Title
Analysis of the Prognosis and Clinical Course in Patients With Chronic Respiratory Failure Receiving Domiciliary NPPV
Purpose
The purposes of the present study are (1) to analyze baseline patient characteristics cross-sectionally, (2) to analyze the prognosis and its predictive factors, and (3) to examine longitudinal clinical course in patients with chronic respiratory failure receiving domiciliary NPPV.
Details
Limited data are available about the prognosis and its predictive factors in patients with chronic respiratory failure receiving domiciliary NPPV. In addition, their health status, psychological status and sleep quality seem to be highly disturbed due to severe respiratory insufficiency. Therefore, in the present study, we aim to examine (1) contributive factors to health status based on baseline data, (2) whether patient reported measurements such as health status, dyspnea and psychological status would predict patient's future outcomes, and (3) how they would change for 3 years as compared to physiological measurements.
