Abstract

Introduction Research in the field of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) has contributed to the development of new NIV interfaces. However, interface tolerance plays a crucial role in determining the beneficial effects of NIV therapy. Areas covered This systematic review explores the most significant scientific research on NIV interfaces, with a focus on the potential impact that their design might have on treatment adherence and clinical outcomes. The rationale on the choice of the right interface among the wide variety of devices that are currently available is discussed here. Expert opinion The paradigm 'The right mask for the right patient' seems to be difficult to achieve in real life. Ranging from acute to chronic settings, the gold standard should include the tailoring of NIV interfaces to patients' needs and preferences. However, such customization may be hampered by issues of economic nature. High production costs and the increasing demand represent consistent burdens and have to be considered when dealing with patient-tailored NIV interfaces. New research focusing on developing advanced and tailored NIV masks should be prioritized; indeed, interfaces should be designed according to the specific patient and clinical setting where they need to be used.
