Course Description

The Certificate Course in Mechanical Ventilator focuses on the principles, operation, and maintenance of mechanical ventilators, which are medical devices used to support or replace the natural breathing function of patients with respiratory insufficiency or failure.

Every year, approximately 5 million patients in India require admission to intensive care units (ICUs) due to serious medical conditions. To ensure these patients receive the best possible care, there is a significant need for 50,000 skilled healthcare professionals who specialize in ICU treatment. One of the essential pieces of equipment in ICUs and emergency departments is the mechanical ventilator, which plays a crucial role in supporting the respiratory function of critically ill patients. The proper mobilization and management of patients on mechanical ventilators requires advanced skills and expertise. It is imperative for all healthcare professionals working in ICUs to possess a solid understanding of mechanical ventilators and adhere to appropriate and safe practices. Proficiency in mechanical ventilation is vital for making informed clinical decisions and providing effective therapy for critically ill patients.

The Certificate Course in Mechanical Ventilatior aims to provide healthcare professionals with comprehensive knowledge and skills in this area. It will introduce you to the different modes of ventilation, enabling you to understand their individual characteristics and applications. You will learn the essential skills required to set up a mechanical ventilator accurately. The course covers the physiology and operational aspects of mechanical ventilators, allowing you to grasp the principles behind their functioning and how they interact with the patient’s respiratory system. Furthermore, you will gain an understanding of the various complications that can arise from mechanical ventilation, equipping you with the ability to effectively identify and manage these risks.

In addition, the Certificate Course in Mechanical Ventilation will delve into advanced monitoring techniques for assessing lung function during mechanical ventilation in specific conditions such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), obstructive lung disease, and COVID-19. You will learn about the latest tools and methods used to monitor respiratory parameters and interpret the obtained data to guide treatment decisions. Moreover, the certificate course in mechanical ventilation will cover different methods of non-invasive ventilation, their specific applications, and the potential complications that may occur. This knowledge will enable you to make informed decisions regarding the appropriate use of non-invasive ventilation strategies for patients.

By the end of the Certificate Course in Mechanical Ventilation, you will have gained a comprehensive understanding of mechanical ventilation, allowing you to confidently manage patients on mechanical ventilators and contribute to their optimal care.

Course Validity: 3 months. There will be an extra charge on the extension of the course validity.
