Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Non-invasive positive pressure ventilation is increasingly used in children both in acute and in chronic setting. Clinical data supporting safety, efficacy and limitations in children are growing. Technical problems related to the ventilators performance and interfaces selection have not been fully resolved, especially for younger children. Non-invasive ventilation can be applied at home. Its use at home requires appropriate diagnostic procedures, accurate titration of the ventilators, cooperative and educated families and careful, well-organized follow-up programs.
