What is home NIPV?

Home Non-invasive Pulmonary Ventilation is conventional pulmonary ventilation in the home environment via a ventilator in order to lead a full life at home.

A significant benefit of this care is the improvement of the patient's psychological state. Our team includes physicians in the fields of anaesthesiology and ENT (otorhinolaryngology).

Based on the VZP (General Health Insurance company) project, we also work closely with the non-profit organization Breath of Life (Dech života) to provide our clients with equipment and supplies.

How does NIPV work and what does it include?

Home non-invasive pulmonary ventilation works in the same way as pulmonary ventilation in a healthcare facility, i.e. it partially or completely mechanically replaces spontaneous breathing activity. The ventilators used do not require continuous supervision by health professionals, so it is possible to discharge a client to home care after careful training of family members.

What do you need to know about NIPV?

There are several conditions that must be met to be eligible for the NIPV program. These include:

  • An assessment of whether the client's medical condition allows for home care, as well as the ability and readiness of loved ones to provide care for a full 24 hours.
  • An assessment of the family's social and economic circumstances.
  • The readiness of the home environment for the new situation (wheelchair access, adequate sanitary facilities, suitable bed, etc.)

Who indicates the NIPV?

A patient is enrolled in the NIPV programme on the basis of an indication by the attending physician in the hospital facility, the application is then assessed and approved by the reviewing physician of the relevant health insurance company.
