Noninvasive Ventilation in Emergency Medicine

Noninvasive Ventilation in Emergency Care

Latest Course update : January 2017

Ventilation plays an increasing role in the management of seriously ill patients in the Emergency Department. Traditionally ventilation has been limited to the delivery of positive pressure ventilation in the unconscious intubated (often paralysed) patient. This is generally referred to as "assisted" or "mechanical" ventilation. In recent years the use of non-invasive ventilation has become widespread due to research that has demonstrated the benefit of CPAP and BiPAP in patients with chronic obstructive airway disease (COAD) and acute pulmonary oedema, two of the most common causes for life threatening presentations due to acute respiratory distress to the emergency department.

The course explores the following topics :

  • 1. Non-invasive Ventilation : Core principles

  • 2. Using BPAP in clinical practice

  • 3. Using CPAP in clinical practice

  • 4. Setting up an Oxylog ventilator for Non-invasive ventilation
