PARGA, Daniela; ZAMBRANO, Henry; VALDEBENITO, Carlos  and  PRADO, Francisco. Noninvasive ventilation in the status asthmaticus in pediatrics. Arch. Pediatr. Urug. [online]. 2017, vol.88, n.5, pp.284-287. ISSN 0004-0584.

Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) has gradually become more relevant in the last 15 years, being it indicated in the event of severe hypoxemic respiratory failure in children, adolescents and adults. However, there is a lack of systematic reviews, randomized and double blind studies that provide significant evidence on its usefulness, effectiveness and efficiency, especially in the event of severe acute asthma, in the context of intervention as per emergency services protocols.This study presents a review of a few considerations arising from pathophysiological justifications and observational studies findings.

Keywords : Noninvasive ventilation; Status asthmaticus; Acute disease.
