This two day course will be held at the RCPE on Monday 5 and Tuesday 6 June 2017.

Primarily for respiratory consultants, physiologists, senior trainees and any physician with an interest in NIV/Obstructive Sleep Apnoea , the course will provide an update on current hot topics and controversies.

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea is a growing problem. This interactive course covers diagnostic approaches, CPAP , mandibular  advancement devices, bimaxillary surgery, driving and OSA, as well as other common problems encountered in this field.

Non-Invasive Ventilation

The course will describe and discuss the technical aspects of NIV to ensure that the procedure is successful. Topics covered include NIV in acute failure, NIV in weaning, Pitfalls in the use of NIV, predicting outcomes and Chronic NIV in neuromuscular disorders. We will also have a session on discharge planning for complex patients on home ventilators which will be followed by an open forum with framework questions.

This course will have a maximum attendance of 35 delegates so places will go fast.
