Post-ASM Workshop – Paediatric Home Non-invasive Ventilation Workshop

Date: 7 October 2013

Venue: Kwong Wah Hospital

This workshop is co-organized with the Department of Paediatrics at Kwong Wah Hospital. It provides theoretical and practical training for paediatricians and allied health professionals on paediatric non-invasive ventilation (NIV) in home setting. Focus will be placed on the use of NIV in children with sleep-disordered breathing and chronic ventilatory insufficiency.

The objectives of the workshop are to enable participants to i) understand different modes of NIV and their clinical applications; ii) successfully initiate NIV in paediatric patients; iii) follow-up patients on NIV and trouble-shoot; and iv) enhance patient adherence to NIV.

The format of this workshop is interactive. Case studies will be used throughout the course. Participants will benefit from interacting with local and world-renowned experts in lectures, discussions and hands-on workshops.
