The article focuses on a study which assesses the impact of hyperglycaemia with acute non-invasive ventilation on outcome. The study suggests that random blood glucose, baseline respiratory rate and admission Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE) II score predict outcome. It also indicates that baseline respiratory rate and hyperglycaemia are similar in outcomes to the APACHE II score.
