The aim of this study is to see if the Vapotherm High Flow Therapy (HFT) device is effective to provide breathing support to patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD. The investigators believe that patients using HFT will not require as much use of therapies that provide pressure through a face mask, and are already recognized by FDA as support therapies for respiratory insufficiency.
The overall objective of this study is to demonstrate that Vapotherm High Flow Therapy (HFT) via nasal cannula provides respiratory support to patients with COPD as a primary diagnosis, who present with respiratory insufficiency in the Emergency Department. We intend to demonstrate that Vapotherm HFT via nasal cannula will result in at least equivalent patient outcomes as the current standard of care, while eliminating the need for other non-invasive respiratory support devices cleared for the treatment of respiratory insufficiency. The current standard of care will include the use of other devices cleared by the FDA as respiratory assist devices for the treatment of adult respiratory insufficiency.

There has been renewal of interest in the use of prophylactic antibiotics to reduce the frequency of exacerbations and improve quality of life in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Progressive illnesses such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) impart a high level of physical and psychological burden. Evidence-based psychotherapies hold the potential to improve percep...
In exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, administration of high concentrations of oxygen may cause hypercapnia and increase mortality compared with oxygen titrated, if required, to a...
The chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a preventable entity, when it develops the patient suffers severe complications, with a high economic impact for the patient and for health services.
Introduction: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a one of the main reasons of disability and mortality in the world. The essential attention is dedicated to the combination of COPD and er...
A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
A subcategory of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE. The disease is characterized by hypersecretion of mucus accompanied by a chronic (more than 3 months in 2 consecutive years) productive cough. Infectious agents are a major cause of chronic bronchitis.
A scopolamine derivative and CHOLINERGIC ANTAGONIST that functions as a BRONCHODILATOR AGENT. It is used in the treatment of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE.
An ADRENERGIC BETA-2 RECEPTOR AGONIST with a prolonged duration of action. It is used to manage ASTHMA and in the treatment of CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE.
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) is used for a number of conditions including chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which all lead to the airways in the lungs becoming damaged and thus narrower, making inhalation and exhalation harder...
