Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) is a powerful therapy that clinicians can add to their ventilation toolbox. This course will cover the indications for NIV, initiation and optimization, how to monitor patients on NIV, and how to wean them from it. We’ll delve into controversial uses for NIV, where NIV is first line therapy, and how to rationally test its effectiveness in these situations.
