Ventilator Awareness Training


This ventilator awareness training course is aimed at nurses and carers responsible for the care of those who utilise a ventilation system.

The course will teach delegates about the respiratory system and the effects the ventilation system can have on an individual.

Delegates will discuss the various types of ventilation, the common complications associated with ventilation and what to do if there is a complication.

We were able to ask lots of questions & had lots of discussion around the subject which was really helpful.
