INTRODUCTION: Noninvasive Ventilation, a term applied to a variety of devices capable of supporting neonatal ventilation without the use of an endotracheal tube, is receiving increasing attention as means to reduce damage often incurred with mechanical ventilation. Despite surfactant and mechanical ventilation being the standard of care for preterm infants with respiratory failure, non-invasive respiratory support is increasingly being used in the NICU.
METHODS: Search strategy, included a literature review on medical databases, published between the year of 2011to 2017.we will be presented an approach to the nursing research on developmental positioning and skin care, and advanced medical management have led to better and safer outcomes for premature infants requiring noninvasive ventilation.
RESULTS: We studied well the medical emphasis of avoiding long-term mechanical ventilation would not be possible without the technology to provide noninvasive ventilation to these premature infants and the nursing vigilant in terms of careful positioning, preventing skin breakdown and facial scarring, and a proper seal to maximize ventilation accuracy.
CONCLUSION/RECOMMENDATIONS: In this review, I have enclosed based on research to enumerate some of the knowledge about skin care and positioning as well as the most appropriate uses for noninvasive ventilation devices. Care of the infant receiving NIV is based on an ongoing assessment of the infant’s clinical condition and response to therapy. The literature has clearly demonstrated that the success of NIV therapy increases with increasing experience of the clinicians administering the therapy.
