Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) is a proven integral tool that can reduce length of stay, morbidity, risks of infection and cost of care.1,2 Noninvasive ventilation is preferable to invasive ventilation when medically feasible.3,4
However, NIV is underutilized. Approximately 30 to 40% of patients do not receive noninvasive ventilator care according to best evidence.5 Further, the perceived complexity of NIV can substantially impede adoption.5
The goal of this hour-long session is to reduce that perception. The success of NIV depends on the selection of an appropriate patient, interface, ventilator and ventilator settings, and the skill of the clinician.5 This webinar will discuss these facets. You will learn about common obstacles related to noninvasive ventilation in critical care transport and gain practical considerations for pre-hospital to hospital settings.
