  • Role of a Telemedicine approach in initiating home NIV for COPD patients. Dr. Marieke Duiverman
I am Marieke Duiverman, 39 years old, mother of 3 children, and one of my “hobbies” is to work as a pulmonologist at the University Medical Center Groningen combining clinics with research in the field of home mechanical ventilation and high flow therapy.  As a team, the last decade, we performed several studies in the field of telemonitored home initiation of chronic NIV.  In the structure of HMV in the Netherlands, with 4 dedicated HMV centers, we collaborate to make this standard of care for our patient population.  I am eager to spread this way of working worldwide and hope that my role as ERS group 2.2 non-invasive ventilatory support secretary will help to facilitate this.
