Abstract

Comfort is integral towards tolerance in helmet non-invasive ventilation (NIV) therapy among acute respiratory failure (ARF) patients. This study aims to measure the patients’ comfort behaviour level after completion of helmet NIV therapy. It is a quantitative, descriptive, observational study involving 67 ARF patients. Kolcaba's Comfort Behavioural Checklist (CBC) was used, with the highest score of 120. The mean CBC score was 88.54, SD 7.35, indicating moderate comfort level; for Acute Pulmonary Oedema (APO) and non- APO, patients were 89.88, SD 7.25, and 87.08, SD 7.80 respectively. This reflects genuine patients' response towards therapy which is significant for future improvement.
