Clinical Trial Summary

There are no investigations so far whether an application of positive pressure during non-invasive ventilation might be a therapeutic option for transudative pleural effusion in patients with heart failure. In view of the pathophysiological process with pleural effusion resulting from an increase in intravascular hydrostatic pressure, non-invasive ventilation might provide an improvement.

The aim of the present study is to investigate whether an additional non-invasive ventilation therapy leads to an improved suppression of pleural effusion in heart failure patients.
