But, have ALL other options really been considered?

“What about face mask ventilation?” you ask. . .

Non-invasive Positive Pressure Ventilation with a facial interface also has complications, not as many as invasive positive pressure ventilation, but patient comfort and the inability to eat, drink and talk while being ventilated are major factors that influence compliance and success.

Biphasic Cuirass Ventilation has none of the risks of positive pressure ventilation. It can facilitate pulmonary hygiene and secretion clearance without having to change the interface.  And, you can eat, drink and talk while being ventilated!

This makes Hayek Medical’s Biphasic Cuirass Ventilation one of the best options for those with neuromuscular disorders, COPD and many other cardiopulmonary diseases.
