Mechanical Ventilation




This course delivers an extensive knowledge in advanced techniques and skills for mechanical ventilation in the critically ill patient, including the latest advances in ventilator technology through lectures, interactive discussion, hands-on small group workshops.  It provides general information about mechanical ventilation.

This comprehensive, interactive program emphasizes practical solutions for issues related to patients in respiratory failure.

At the end of this course, the participants should be able to:

  • Enhance their understanding of the clinical applications of mechanical ventilation and to address advances in ventilatory care.
  • Cite the alterations when artificial airways are present and the prevention of complications.
  • Describe the process of weaning a patient from mechanical ventilation and the nurse’s role in this process.
  • Explore and develop knowledge for underpinning evidence base principles of mechanical ventilation using national guidelines and care bundles.
