Children with hypoventilation syndromes need specialised equipment to support breathing overnight, and for some patients throughout the day. In some cases, this is to help support the patient for a period of time and in other cases this is a more permanent requirement.

Children’s Health Queensland maintain a pool of equipment through the home ventilation program but unfortunately the availability of equipment can sometimes delay patients being discharged from hospital and being able to go home sooner.
