  • CONCLUSIONS: Conclusions: Obese asthmatic patients with chronic respiratory insufficiency should be checked for concomitant obesity hypoventilation syndrome. Positive airway pressure treatment during sleep (CPAP or NIV) in asthmatic patients with obesity hypoventilation syndrome is well tolerated, leads to reversal of chronic respiratory insufficiency and in some patients may contribute to the improvement of asthma control.
