Ventilatory support in the adult critical patient Esta formação não está ativa.

In the recent history of medicine directed at respiratory failure, it is difficult to find a non-scarring therapeutic strategy that has such a positive impact on survival as ventilatory support by mechanical ventilation. With the recent pandemic of COVID-19, ventilatory support as a means of life support has once again occupied the main spaces in medical sciences. The need for specific medical training to improve the quality of ventilatory support, whether invasive or non-invasive, is increasingly latent in healthcare.

Job Opportunities

This course aims to provide medical, physiotherapy, nursing and other professionals who intervene in critically and chronically ill patients with a set of knowledge in the area of invasive and non-invasive mechanical ventilatory support, which may complement their basic training in the management of therapeutic strategies in patients dependent on mechanical ventilation.
