Lecture Overview


CPAP, BiPAP, IPAP, EPAP, AutoPEEP...?? Sometimes we all need a refresher on what the acronyms we use in healthcare actually mean, and more importantly, what this means for our patients. NIV is an area of practice that can seem daunting, but you are likely to need these skills at some point during your career. Includes some fantastic tips and tricks for using these devices and how to calm your patients.

Excellent but only for those with reasonable knowledge and experience. Obviously an advanced practitioner with a great logical presentation. Technical but linked to the patient throughout which presents a strong professional nursing presentation
