Non-Invasive Ventilators (NIV) Patient with non-invasive vent reading in bed

Rotech offers both invasive and non-invasive ventilators for patients with neuromuscular disease, thoracic restrictive disease, and chronic respiratory failure related to COPD. Non-invasive ventilation therapy reduces the work required to breathe for patients with chronic respiratory failure.

NIV is an effective therapy that can help maintain or improve quality of life while reducing exacerbation frequency, hospital admission rates, length of stay, and healthcare costs for patients suffering from chronic respiratory failure resulting from exacerbations of COPD. Studies have shown that NIV reduces the need for intubation and complications in these patients while increasing survival rates.

How non-invasive ventilation works:

Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) means breathing support is delivered through a non-invasive method, like a nasal mask, instead of an invasive approach, like a tracheostomy. The NIV machine helps fully inflate the lungs, improving blood oxygen levels and reducing carbon dioxide levels. NIV can also help improve sleep quality and alleviate symptoms that may result from low levels of oxygen or accumulated carbon dioxide like morning headaches, daytime fatigue and shortness of breath.

Preventing Hospital Readmission:

NIV therapy helps decrease COPD-related problems, or exacerbations, by keeping CO2 and O2 levels stable. This increased stability allows patients to avoid expensive and unnecessary hospitalizations and can reduce emergency room and unscheduled doctor visits. Studies by Royal Philips have shown that NIV therapy use decreases a patient's hospital readmission rate by 97%.
