Noninvasive positive pressure ventilation (NPPV) provides an exciting alternative to invasive methods of managing ventilation. Used in appropriate patients, NPPV provides advantages for patients versus endotracheal intubation. NPPV can also be used as a mode to support the patient moving to a transitional care environment for continued care. This module will discuss NPPV and the educational needs of clinicians and patients using this therapy.
The goal of this educational course is to provide acute and critical care clinicians with evidence supporting the use of noninvasive positive pressure ventilation as well as strategies for its application.
