According to Dr. Navo, the recent update to the Guidelines for NIV focus on three areas:

  • Palliative Care
  • Trauma
  • Post-Operative Care

Dr. Navo believes there is an increased need for research to learn how NIV can best be used in pandemic scenarios, asthma treatment, and de novo respiratory failure cases. He also feels more training, education, and reimbursement is needed to help improve the practice of NIV.
