Validity of transcutaneous PCO2 in monitoring chronic hypoventilation treated with non-invasive ventilation

Abstract

Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is an efficient treatment for patients with chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure (CRF), but requires regular monitoring to detect both diurnal and nocturnal residual hypercapnia. The present study was designed to determine 1) whether transcutaneous PCO2 (PtcCO2) is a valid tool for monitoring PaCO2 in this group of patients, and 2) if overnight instrumental drift of the PtcCO2 sensor is clinically significant.
