Hygiene of nasal masks used at home for non-invasive ventilation in children

Abstract

Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is used increasingly in children with chronic respiratory insufficiency. For best results NIV requires a nasal or face mask adapted to the paediatric patient. Other devices used with masks, such as nebulisers in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients or spacer devices in asthmatics, can be microbiologically contaminated. As we found no literature data about contamination of NIV nasal masks, we conducted a pilot study to evaluate the methods of cleaning used by patients at home and their rate of microbial contamination.
