Ongoing monitoring and optimisation of NIV

To achieve maximum benefit from using non-invasive ventilation (NIV), patients must adhere to the ventilation and the ventilation must be effective.

Patients require regular monitoring to assess how well they are using the NIV and to check if there are any problems that need to be addressed.

This section provides information and guidance about monitoring people using NIV, identifying problems with the ventilation and the steps to take to optimise the NIV.
