Applying NIV after extubation

Up to 20% of patients who are removed from mechanical ventilation will require reintubation within 48 hours of extubation–and their prognosis is generally worse. In this video, from our noninvasive Ventilation Masterclass, we look at how NIV may be used to treat post-extbuation respiratory failure or to try and prevent respiratory failure before it occurs.

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.
