Field standard chronic ventilation in children

The field standard for chronic ventilation in children has been developed on the basis of the field standard for chronic ventilation 1.0, which is intended for patients aged 16 and over. Although there is overlap in the care for children with the care for adults with chronic ventilation, there are also important differences with this care. That is why this separate field standard for children with chronic mechanical ventilation has been developed, which aims to provide insight into the care of the chronically mechanically ventilated child, to optimize the care and to make the treatment as effective and safe as possible.
