Abstract

The education and training of medical personnel in noninvasive ventilation (NIV) is essential in improving outcomes, reducing failures, and avoiding complications associated with the use of ventilation [1]. Furthermore, adequate training of staff provides a cost reduction in patient care. In this regard, a proper training period should be part of the education of respiratory health care professions who are part of the multidisciplinary respiratory team dealing with the NIV.
