Open Day - Sleep and Non-Invasive Ventilation: challenge in clinical practice

Saturday, October 28, 2023 - 09:00 to 18:00

Católica Medical School invites you to participate in this Open Day on "Sleep and Non-Invasive Ventilation: challenge in clinical practice", which will take place on October 28th – 9am-6pm at Católica Medical School. 

Non-invasive ventilation (NIV) is considered the first-line therapy for sleep-disordered breathing, and its efficacy is strictly related to adherence and compliance to treatment. Overall, despite being effective, adherence and compliance levels are low, and in clinical practice there are many challenges when we talk about NIV in patients with sleep-disordered breathing, which makes its optimization a real need for health professionals.  

Sharing knowledge about ventilator modes, pressure levels, ventilator algorithms as well as NIV patient follow-up models, pressure titration in the laboratory and optimization strategies are extremely important to optimize the overall levels of adherence and compliance and consequently the quality of life of patients with sleep-disordered breathing, reducing the associated levels of morbidity and mortality. 

Join us on this Open Day, in which there will be two webinars, followed by a second part of hands-on about “Sleep and NIV".
