More information

Within this section you will find a document on Guidance on Practical Acute Non Invasive Ventilation Session both in Word and PDF formats.

This document consists of:

  • the competency assessment for the practical session

  • a guide to completion of the practical session

  • case studies and supplementing documentation

This document includes, competency sign off for the practical sessions and case study scenarios, which can be run or used within the practical sessions and underpin the basis for assessment. Training may be run differently within your own organisation, however it must meet the minimum standards outlined within the competency assessment.

Please contact the NIV trainer in your hospital for further information on how to book your local practical session.
