Non-invasive ventilation in pressure support (NIV) is well described in the adult and child over 5 years. However, its use in children less than 1 year of age remains anecdotal. We report our preliminary experience with the use of NIV in six children aged from 5 days to 10 months. NIV was delivered with a flow generator (VPAP IIST, Resmed Ltd, North Ryde, NSW, Australia) in association with specific tubings and a nasal mask. The use of NIV resulted in a significant decrease of both the respiratory rate (from 53 to 39 breaths per min, p < 0.01) and the PvCO(2) (from 9.33 to 6.28 kPa, p < 0.01). These results show that NIV can be used in children under 1 year of age with improvement of physiological parameters.
