NCT01489150
First received: December 2, 2011

Last verified: May 2013
  Purpose

In patients treated by Non invasive ventilation (NIV) due to acute hypercapnic respiratory failure, the interest of using the End-tidal Co2 measurement device "Capnostream" to evaluate PaCo2 and PaCo2 variations over time will be evaluated. Measurements will be done under normal expiration and under prolonged active and passive expiration maneuvers.
