Mechanical ventilation

WHAT IS NON-INVASIVE VENTILATION (NIV)?

Non-Invasive Ventilation is a a therapy for Chronic Respiratory Insufficiency (CRI) or for pathologies where the respiratory muscles are deficient.

This treatment consists of assisting breathing using a device that generates two pressures: One upon inhaling and another, lower pressure, upon exhaling, by means of a mask placed over the nose and/or mouth.

Use of non-invasive ventilation is done in a medical environment in order to:

  • adapt the machine settings according to the patient’s pathology and to confirm its effectiveness,
  • ensure patient comfort and good tolerance of the mask before returning home.

A period of adaptation, more or less long depending on the individual, is quite normal. It is necessary for the success of your treatment.
