Non-Invasive Ventilation for Acute Hypercapnic Respiratory Failure Get help

Welcome to the Nursing Times Learning online training course on non-invasive ventilation for acute hypercapnic respiratory failure.

Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) account for the majority of people admitted to hospital with life-threatening hypercapnic respiratory failure.

  • How to recognise signs and symptoms of acute hypercapnic respiratory failure and understand its pathophysiology
  • How to interpret arterial blood gases in relation to non-invasive ventilation
  • About the indications, contraindications and complications for NIV
  • How to demonstrate practical aspects of NIV
