  • NIV for COPD: Hospital to Home

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    This is a pilot study to evaluate the impact of providing patients admitted with acute exacerbations of COPD (AECOPD) with non-invasive ventilation (NIV)home devices prior to discharge on hospital readmission rates and other secondary outcomes. Aim 1 To test whether continuation of NIV at home after being initiated during hospitalization for AECOPD improves subsequent admission-free survival in patients with chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure secondary to COPD Hypothesis 1: The use of targeted NIV during hospitalization with continuation upon discharge to home will improve one-year all-cause mortality as compared to published mortality in the current literature. Hypothesis 2: The use of targeted NIV during hospitalization with continuation upon discharge to home will reduce readmission rates for AECOPD within-institution historical data. Aim 2 To evaluate the feasibility of a larger multisite randomized controlled trial in veterans using inclusion and exclusion criteria specified in this pilot. Outcomes Primary: Event-free survival (re-hospitalization for AECOPD, time to readmission for AECOPD, and all-cause mortality) Secondary: 1. Unplanned readmission rates (all complications) 2. Time to readmissions for admissions other than AECOPD. 3. Arterial blood gas/Venous blood gas (ABG/VBG): PaO2, PaCO2 and serum bicarbonate at Baseline, 6 and 12 months 4. Pulmonary function (handheld spirometer or in-laboratory based on specific institution resources) at Baseline, 6, and 12 months 5.6 minute walk test at Baseline, 6,and 12 months 6.Health related quality of life (HRQOL) measured by the St. Georges respiratory questionnaires (SGRQ) at Baseline, 1,3,6,9 and 12 months 7.Adherence to NIV at Week 1-2, Months 1,3,6,9 and 12 8.Sleep assessed by type 3 portable monitors 9.Sleep assessed by questionnaires: Insomnia severity index (ISI), Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS), Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Functional Outcomes of Sleep Short Form (FOSQ-10) at Baseline, 1,3,6,9 and 12 months 11.Utilization of healthcare services (number of visits to outpatient clinics and emergency services, number of inpatient admissions)
