The course is suitable for neonatal and paediatric consultants, trainees and nurse practitioners who want to have a good understanding of the principles of ventilation and wish to advance their training in this area. The course is 3 days long. Day 1 introduces basic concepts of ventilation. Days 2 and 3 deal with more advanced concepts of ventilatory practice with practical sessions in the afternoon. While days 2 and 3 build on the topics discussed on day 1, any of the days can be completed alone.
