Abstract

NIV is a method of ventilatory support which is delivered to the patient without using an invasive airway. For the last two decades it is increasingly used as an accepted method of mechanical ventilatory support as it is proved to have many positive outcomes as it can prevent invasive ventilation & its complication. In a tertiary care hospital of Bangladesh we are using this method in all patients meeting the NIV criteria & not having absolute contraindication irrespective of diagnosis. Our study aimed to access the out come of the NIV trial using our local resource & to compare it with others. This is an ongoing prospective study and till this report data from 82 patients were analyzed here of which 50% patient ended with positive outcome & 50% ended as negative outcome. As the result of this method varies significantly by diagnosis & severity of disease we are generating specific recommendations according to the likely outcome according to the diagnosis.
