Chris – life with NIV

"NIV has given me the confidence to do more things, as I have more energy"
- Chris

After a bumpy start Chris has eventually found her stride with NIV. She really didn’t want it when first suggested, but she is very pleased she gave it a go.

Chris has found using NIV overnight has given her more energy in the daytime. Having more energy has given her more confidence with days out and short trips.

She and Andrew continue to go for their daily dip in the pool. NIV gives Chris a boost to be able to do this. Chris jogs up and down in the water nowadays, and still has a great time meeting friends and socialising.

Many people find NIV gives them an energy boost. Others may not feel the same ‘boost’ – but they may find they sleep better and notice other benefits. It varies from person to person. This can depend on how soon they start NIV and how their breathing is changing.
