Abstract

Thirtyfour subjects affected by chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) all of whom with a PaO2>60 mm Hg, have been studied along a 42 month period. At the enrollment 19/34 (55.8%) presented nocturnal desaturations (NOD). A stable hypoxemia (PaO21 and highest PaCO2, together with a higher REM-associated NOD; their FEV1 declined more rapidly along the time (significantly). In conclusion REM-associated NOD can be a further risk factor or favour chronic respiratory failure.
