    NIPPY is a brand name of a Non Invasive Positive Pressure Ventilation machine. (Some marketing guru put a tail on the letter V to make it a Y) It helps with breathing.
    Also known as NIV & BiPAP.

    Thanks Ellie, I hadn't heard of the nippy but have been waiting to see the respiratory consultant for some time and at last am seeing him on Friday,perhaps I will learn more after seeing him. I was only diagnosed officially earlier this year after being treated for what physio thought was back trouble for six months, whilst having problems with my walking. Seems now like lot of time wasted . Unfortunately I seem to be progressing faster than I hoped, have been taking rilozole for 6 weeks now just living in hope that it may slow progress down. X JAN Q
