The Certificate Course in Mechanical Ventilator offered by Medvarsity Online aims to provide comprehensive knowledge in mechanical ventilation and its different modes. The training will equip healthcare professionals in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) with the knowledge to operate the mechanical ventilators.
Did you know that in India, around 5 million patients are admitted to the ICU every year? Yes, this implies that the country requires 50,000 ICU professionals trained to provide accurate therapy for these patients. Mechanical ventilators are crucial equipment required in ICUs and emergency departments to provide respiratory support. And you will learn all about it with the Mechanical Ventilator training.
The course will run for 2 months. The Mechanical Ventilator programme will cover the operational and physiological aspects of mechanical ventilators. Moreover, you will learn about advanced monitoring of lung function during conditions like ARDS, Covid-19 and obstructive lung disease.
You will receive a Certificate in Mechanical Ventilator when you pass each course level and complete the modules. Healthcare professionals who work in ICUs, physicians, final year medical graduates, medical interns, and intensive care nurses are well-suited for the course.
