Respiratory support for children

If your care provider has indicated that your child needs respiratory support (in the form of positive airway pressure or noninvasive ventilation), it’s completely natural that you’d be feeling somewhat anxious and overwhelmed.

Rest assured that you’re not alone; there are thousands of children who, like your child, need a respiratory support device to help them breathe.

We at ResMed are here to offer information, understanding and compassion to help make this journey as smooth as possible—for you and your child.
