Home ventilation

Home ventilation is employed for patients who, e.g. for failure of the respiratory muscles or nerves to provide sufficient breath support, are still dependent on long-term ventilation therapy but are stable and receive treatment outside the hospital. Ventilation treatment can be invasive or non-invasive.

Invasive ventilation occurs through a tracheal cannula which is inserted into the trachea after tracheotomy. Invasive ventilation is mostly delivered in a continuous manner, but can also be interrupted for as many hours as the patient tolerates.

Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) uses special or even customized masks rather than a tube or cannula inserted into the tracheal airway. Leakages are bound to occur because the masks do not always fit properly. Therefore, in most cases, NIV is only intermittently administered.

A range of very modern, easy-to-use and user-friendly devices is available for ventilation in a home setting. Depending on the method chosen, ventilation occurs either through a mask or a tracheal cannula placed in the tracheostoma.

As such intensive care treatments have the potential to overtax the patients´ family members as well as normal professional caregivers, some nursing care services have specialized in ventilation support and intensive care treatment at home.

In most cases the health insurance provider will undertake to pay for a certain number of hours (up to 24 hours a day) during which the professional caregiver who performs basic care and treatment care, monitors the patient and knows how to react to specific situations is expected to be present.

According to section 10 (1) of the German Medical Devices Act, it is not allowed to operate a ventilator in combination with a compressed-air inhaler in a closed-loop ventilation system.

The compressed-air inhaler can affect the system in such a way as to bring incalculable risks for the patient.
