This book was initially started to help with understanding and organizing what I needed to know about the two most common NIMV (noninvasive mechanical ventilation) units, ie. Trilogy and Astral. As I presented this information at various lectures, it was clear to me that there was no guide that could be used in the setup of these machines. The most common mode of ventilation in each was AVAPS and iVAPS, respectively. Most of the initial difficulty is getting into the main menus of the machines. Once this is accomplished, one can easily change and adjust each of the machines. My hope is to impart the knowledge I have gained out of necessity to others. The hope is to have a step-by-step method of entering the menu and then moving through the various settings. I have concentrated on the two main modes of ventilation on each of the machines as the other modes available are variations on the two main modes. As one understands and allows for more experience with these machines, it will hopefully allow for more expertise in these field.In the NIMV clinic, I have patients sit in a recliner, and then, I place them on these machines with a mask of the patient's choosing. Then based on trial and error, I start adjusting the pressures. Once the pressures and settings feel right to the patient, I allow the patient to recline and take a small nap. While they are napping, I have a continuous pulse oximetry, which can be added to these machines to monitor the oxygen saturation. By the end of the clinic, I have the exact settings and give this to the DME (durable medical equipment) company. In follow up, I know exactly what the settings are and if they are tolerable to the patient.

This book is an important new resource for clinicians caring for ventilator dependent children, who often have complex health care needs, are supported by advanced technology and are at high-risk of serious complications. Despite the complicated health care needs of children who rely on chronic respiratory support, there are few guidelines and little evidence available to guide the clinicians who care for these patients. This book covers the many aspects involved in the care of these complex children, with input from experts in the fields of pediatric pulmonology, intensive care, ethics, respiratory therapy, and nursing. In depth chapters provide an introduction to the use of chronic invasive and non-invasive ventilation in children and describe and review what is known about methods of delivering ventilator support, care of the chronically ventilated patient in the community , use of chronic ventilator support in patients with disorders commonly leading to respiratory failure and outcomes for patients and their caregivers. This book is intended to be useful not only for pediatric pulmonologists, but also for intensivists, cardiologists, physical medicine/rehabilitation specialists, nurses, respiratory therapists and the primary care physicians involved in the complexities of managing care for this unique group of special needs children.

Over the last two decades, the increasing use of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) has reduced the need for endotracheal ventilation, thus decreasing the rate of ventilation-induced complications. Thus, NIV has decreased both intubation rates and mortality rates in specific subsets of patients with acute respiratory failure (for example, patients with hypercapnia, cardiogenic pulmonary edema, immune deficiencies, or post-transplantation acute respiratory failure). Despite the increased use of NIV in clinical practice, there is still a need for more educational tools to improve clinicians’ knowledge of the indications and contraindications for NIV, the factors that predict failure or success, and also what should be considered when starting NIV. This book has the dual function of being a "classical" text where the major findings in the literature are discussed and highlighted, as well as a practical manual on the tricks and pitfalls to consider in NIV application by both beginners and experts. For example, setting the ventilatory parameters; choosing the interfaces, circuits, and humidification systems; monitoring; and the "right" environment for the "right" patient will be discussed to help clinicians in their choices.

The view on treatment of patients with severe respiratory disorders in general, and of patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in particular, has changed during the past decades. The former, often nihilistic, approach has changed into an attitude towards more active engagement in, and treatment of, severely ill patients. In this context, noninvasive ventilation (NIV) has been brought into focus as a valuable alternative treatment, both in acute respiratory failure and chronic respiratory diseases. The growing interest in NIV has been reflected in the European Respiratory Mon.
