Abstract

The prevalence of chronic respiratory failure (CRF) is currently increasing. This is due to the fact that CRF is the remote consequence of smoking exposure even in ex-smokers, and also to the fact that there is a progressive increase in average life expectancy in western countries. CRF impacts negatively on the functioning of the lungs as well as on other organs, and such negative influences can be measured objectively with various diagnostic tests or subjectively, from the patient's overall point of view, by quality of life assessment.
