The article analyzes a study in Australia on the use of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) in treating hypercapnic respiratory failure in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). Key outcome measures used were quality of life measures, daytime sleepiness and dyspnea. Secondary outcomes were sleep architecture, awake and asleep blood gases, pulmonary function tests, neurocognitive tests and shuttle tests.
