Resumen


Management with non-invasive mechanical ventilation (NIMV) in exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) reduces the need for intubation and the associated complications. It is therefore indicated in clinical settings of acute respiratory failure. The gasometric variables described at sea level are not applicable at the altitude of Bogotá, Colombia (2.640 meters above sea level). The objective was to quantify the frequency of failure of NIMV (defined as death, intubation, or tracheostomy) and to describe the variables at admission associated with failure in patients with exacerbation of COPD and respiratory failure that require management in the intensive care unit (ICU).
