Inscripcions tancades


Working respiratory group of the Spanish Pediatric Intensive Care Society (SECIP) has developed during the last eleven years many workshops and courses for clinicians and nurses in order to spread NIV use among its members. In 2012, an European NIV course with many NIV experts, members of the ESPNIC respiratory group was started.

The main objective of this course is to provide a wide knowledge in this technique and also guarantee that attendees achieve appropriate skills to implement it in their own Units.

This course will provide previous on-line theoretical basis for NIV care. Reading Dr Medina‘s book “NIV in Pediatrics” in the previous month of the course is recommended. The second edition is available in internet for free. Third edition is available from a non-profit organization that gives support to our project of spreading NIV technique around the world.

Main chapters and lectures in the e-learning platform must be read in order to assure that attendees will be able to practice their skills during the course. Pass the on-line exam is mandatory to attend the face to face phase.

NIV attendees should be able at the end of the course to select their own best option among of all the material available, and to develop appropriate protocols adapted to their Units.

A secondary objective of this course is to recruit local NIV clinical champions willing to become trainers and committed to organize NIV courses in several European countries.

In order to maintain high level of quality and homogeneity among the different future courses, those pediatric intensivists or anesthesiologists with clinical experience on NIV who are interested to become NIV trainers of these ESPNIC NIV courses are requested to pass this course and an additional specific NIV trainer’s course.
