Obesity Hypoventilation Syndrome occurs when the body mass index is __kg/m2 or more, resulting in impaired respirations,hypoxia, and hypercapnia during sleep. The obesity results in impairment of muscles of muscles of inspiration, restricting the thorax and causing hypoventilation, leading to hypercapnia. - ANSWER 30 You should begin CPAP when the patient is ready for sleep and start it at the lowest setting, usually _ cm H20 and maintain the low pressure until the patient falls asleep. - ANSWER 5 [Show More]
