​Does anyone have a protocol or have a link to a study regarding protection for NIV masks or other respiratory devices and which products are best?

Our go to currently is Mepilex Lite, not to be confused with the million other Mepilex products. Can be easily removed and used a few times

Hi.

Here at Marin General, we implemented a mask by respironics that goes under the nose but still covers the mouth for assisted ventilation. It causes no sores and/or abrasions on bridge of the nose. Easier to place on the patient as well.

Hope this helps.
