Neural respiratory drive predicts clinical deterioration and safe discharge in exacerbations of COPD

Post date: Dec 21, 2015 5:56:22 PM

Can non-invasive measurement of neural respiratory drive identify clinical deterioration and the risk of early readmission in patients admitted with exacerbation of COPD?

The results of a large physiological observational cohort study are presented, validating a novel physiological biomarker that represents the balance between the load and the capacity of the respiratory muscle pump during exacerbations of COPD.
