Saturday 23 September: 09:00-17:00 


Price: € 250


Course Directors

  • Roberto Cosentini (Italy)
  • Paolo Groff (Italy)


  • Abdo Khoury (France)
  • Patrick Plaisance (France)
  • Roberta Marino (Italy)


The course is designed for 25 participants.

Course description & learning objectives

At the end of the course the participant will be able to:

  • evaluate the correct indications for NPPV
  • set both the ventilators and CPAP devices
  • critically analyze ventilator/patient interactions
  • evaluate intolerance and devise corrections

Course format

This is highly interactive course with a predominant part of training sessions on ventilatory stations. The course will bring you cutting edge information on Non Invasive Positive Pressure Ventilation use and caveats, with a focus on most common cases. For each indication, a hands on session will be run on a different ventilator and CPAP device stations with cognitive simulation of clinical scenarios.
