Introduction Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) in children has become an increasingly common modality of breathing support where pressure support is delivered through a mask interface or less commonly through other non-invasive interfaces. At this time, NIV is considered a first-line option for ventilatory support of chronic respiratory insufficiency associated with a range of respiratory and sleep disorders. Previous reviews on the effectiveness, complications and adherence to NIV treatment have… Expand

There are fewer data to support NIV use for many additional conditions, including obstructive sleep apnea and spinal muscular atrophy, while there are considerable data for the most common conditions. Expand
Long-term Non-Invasive Ventilation in Infants: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Overall, it appears that NIV is an effective long-term therapy for infants, although the high risk of bias and low quality of the available evidence limited strong conclusions. Expand
Does non-invasive ventilation change metabolic markers in children with obstructive sleep apnoea? A systematic review and meta-analysis study protocol
This systematic review will inform clinicians taking care of children with OSA and obesity/metabolic syndrome about the potential effects of NIV therapies on metabolic markers and has the potential to change the approach to childhood Osa and obesity. Expand

This project is part of the Ontario Hospital Association’s (OHA) initiative to improve its understanding of physician engagement, and will be shared with all Ontario hospitals. Expand
Transfer from pediatric to adult healthcare services for home mechanical ventilation users
RATIONALE: The prevalence of children supported with home mechanical ventilation (HMV) is growing and advances in medical care have led to an increasing number surviving to adulthood. Transition to...

The horizon is promising for NPPV in the paediatric population and will likely include novel interfaces and responsive positive pressure devices better suited to the unique mechanical properties of the developing respiratory system. Expand
Invasive and non-invasive long-term mechanical ventilation in Italian children.
Managing pediatric home LTV requires tremendous effort on the part of the patient's family and places a significant strain on community financial resources, in particular, neurological patients require more health care than patients in other categories. Expand
Children on long-term ventilatory support: 10 years of progress
The last 10 years has seen a very significant increase in the number of children requiring LTV in the UK with an increasing number cared for at home, and a continuing change in attitude towards long-term support, particularly in children with neuromuscular diseases. Expand
Non‐invasive ventilation reduces respiratory tract infections in children with neuromuscular disorders
NIV had a favorable impact on respiratory infectious complications in children with neuromuscular disorders and Vaccinations against influenza and/or pneumococcus did not have a significant influence on the rate of infections. Expand
Nocturnal mechanical ventilation for chronic hypoventilation in patients with neuromuscular and chest wall disorders.
Current evidence about the therapeutic benefit of mechanical ventilation is of very low quality, but is consistent, suggesting alleviation of the symptoms of chronic hypoventilation in the short term. Expand
Long term non-invasive ventilation in the community for patients with musculoskeletal disorders: 46 year experience and review
Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) in the community over prolonged periods is a feasible although variably tolerated form of management in patients with neuromuscular disorders. Expand
Survey of children supported by long-term mechanical ventilation in Switzerland.
There are few ventilator-supported children in Switzerland and most of them are cared for at home, so there is a need to establish a system for continuing data collection in this particular patient population to assess outcome and quality of home care support and to follow incidence trends. Expand
Long-term non-invasive ventilation in cystic fibrosis -- experience over two decades.
NIV may slow or reverse the decline in lung function in advanced CF and is increasingly used beyond a bridge to transplantation at the centre. Expand
Continuous positive airway pressure and noninvasive ventilation adherence in children.
Long-term CPAP/NIV adherence at home was extremely high in this group of children followed in a pediatric NIV unit, and this finding may explain the lack of effect of the interface, nocturnal gas exchange, and duration of CPAP-NIV treatment. Expand
The effect of back-up rate during non-invasive ventilation in young patients with cystic fibrosis
Increasing the back-up rate during PS and AC/VT ventilation decreases respiratory effort in young patients with CF, but this effect was more marked with AC/ VT ventilation. Expand
