Wednesday 25 October, 0800-1700

This course is aimed at physicians, trainees, nurses and other allied health professionals involved in the assessment and management of patients presenting with acute respiratory acidosis. The focus of the program will be primarily on patients with exacerbations of COPD and those with obesity hypoventilation syndrome.

Participants will be provided with a review of our current understanding of who and how to use NIV in the acute setting. In addition, the role of high flow nasal cannula in the acute setting and where it fits in the respiratory practitioner’s toolbox will be discussed.

Several presentations feature studies carried out in Australia and New Zealand, illustrating clinical practice in a real world local context. Through panel discussions and large interactive sessions, queries and common problems in this area will be explored.
