Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to invite all of you to this 6th International Conference on Pediatric and Neonatal Non-invasive Ventilation will be held September 26-27th 2024, 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. This time, the 6th Conference will overlap one day with our 1st International Pediatric Home mechanical ventilation Conference covering issues that matters to pediatric intensivists, pulmonologists and allied-healthcare professionals (27-28th). Those interested in the last day (28th) of this activity can join us with a reduced fee for the extra-day.

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

We invite you to participate and make this 6th 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 2024.
