Non-Invasive Ventilation and Non-Invasive Ventilation Types
Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is ventilator support given to patients without the use of an endotracheal tube. The use of NIV has increased significantly in ICUs across the UK and Ireland. It results in the potential complications of invasive mechanical ventilation being avoided. It also helps to deliver cost-effective therapy with decreased length of stay in the ICU and an improved chance of survival.2,5 NIV is used for patients with acute and chronic respiratory failure and also to support weaning therapy. As Your Specialist in Acute Care, we are able offer multiple options for the delivery of non-invasive ventilation or non-invasive ventilation types.
