HOMVent4Kids Trial Summary

This trial will study if remote monitoring helps kids with breathing machines get better care at home.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for children aged 0-17 who need a ventilator at home and have a caregiver trained in its use. The child must not be off ventilation during the day or turning 18 soon. They shouldn't be moving, transitioning care, in end-of-life care, or have conditions that don't allow reduced support.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if remote patient monitoring (RPM) can help manage children's home ventilators better by providing detailed data to their healthcare team. It aims to safely reduce breathing support while avoiding emergencies and supporting growth and daily life participation.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves non-invasive remote monitoring rather than medication, traditional side effects are not expected. However, there may be risks related to data privacy or misinterpretation of remotely gathered health information.
