5th International Pediatric and Neonatal NIV meeting

Inscripcions tancades


Dear Colleagues,

After finishing our 4th NIV meeting in September 2019, nobody could imagine a pandemic waiting for us around the corner.

However, our commitment as a unique Paediatric educational event focused on promoting the use of non-invasive ventilation remains intact.

Although virtual meetings have helped keep ongoing training activities, it seems now it's time to come back safely to face to face events.

I am pleased to invite all of you to this 5th International Conference on Pediatric and Neonatal Non-invasive Ventilation will be held again in Barcelona, Spain.

This Conference, focused on NIV, will be offering the latest advances to young paediatricians, neonatologists, pediatric intensivists, pediatric pulmonologists, and pediatric and neonatal intensive care nurses/respiratory therapists

It is a multidisciplinary forum where everyone will learn from the lectures of well-known experts in this field.

In addition, true to our commitment to education, we will also offer a series of pre-congress workshops that will focus on efficient bedside issues.

We invite you to participate and make this 5th Conference on Pediatric and Neonatal Non-invasive Ventilation a high standard event and a great success. We are looking forward to seeing you in Barcelona in September 2022.

Dr. Martí Pons-Òdena

Member of the Educational Board of ESPNIC
