ESPNIC NIV course in Barcelona, May 2019

The course combines on-line theory and clinical hands-on workshops for NIV care. To

benefit the most from the course’s hands on learning, course attendees will be expected
to read the online material prior to attendance and to pass a pre course online exam. In
the workshops, the attendees will rotate through three skill stations (paediatric, infant, and
neonates) to become familiar with the importance of appropriate indications, interface and
ventilator choice, mode selection and settings, patient monitoring etc. Additionally, analysis
of NIV failure will be explained with interactive clinical cases during skill stations. 

The course aims to provide the attendees both with wide knowledge on the subject of
non-invasive ventilation and the appropriate skills to implement the technique in their
own units.

The final face-to-face course will take place on 2nd - 3rd May in Barcelona, Spain.
