ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study regarding cost effectiveness of ward based non-invasive ventilation for acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, published in the 2003 issue of "British Medical Journal." For this study 236 patients admitted to hospital with an acute exacerbation of COPD were examined. 118 patients were allocated to non-invasive ventilation and another 118 patients were allocated to standard medical treatment. Fewer patients died or were intubated in the noninvasive ventilation group than in the standard treatment group. A cost-effectiveness acceptability curve showed 80% probability that noninvasive ventilation was cheaper and more effective.
