If you or your loved one needs mechanical ventilation, non-invasive ventilation could be a viable option. This easy-to-use technique helps at-home patients breathe easier, whether they’re on palliative care or suffer from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
If you live in Minneapolis, MN or St. Paul, MN, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Corner Home Medical. Our business strives to offer cost-effective, comprehensive NIV care to families and individuals throughout the Twin Cities area.
How NIV Helps
NIV offers a less-invasive mechanical ventilation option for patients who struggle to breathe on their own. People with the following diagnoses can benefit from NIV:
- Neurological disorders, such as multiple sclerosis
- Muscle diseases, such as certain mitochondrial disorders
- Skeletal pathologies, such as kyphoscoliosis
Many of these diseases or disorders lead to alveolar hypoventilation, a condition where patients are unable to take enough breaths per minute. Alveolar hypoventilation usually worsens at night, which is where non-invasive ventilation comes in. Through NIV, patients can breathe normally while they sleep, which improves their quality of sleep and maintains healthy oxygen levels in the body. NIV can also be used on a temporary basis for patients with episodes of respiratory insufficiency secondary to an underlying disease.
