Background Although average volume-assured pressure support (AVAPS) mode has been studied in chronic respiratory failure, studies evaluating its efficacy in acute hypercapnic respiratory failure (AHRF) are limited. Objective The aim of this study was to investigate the benefits of spontaneous timed AVAPS (ST/AVAPS) mode in delivering noninvasive ventilation (NIV) for patients with AHRF compared with the conventional ST/BiPAP (ResMED, San Diego, California, USA) mode.
