This year ATS is offering a full day workshop on respiratory nursing which will consist of a combination of lectures and hands-on demonstrations. Lectures will focus on updates on some common pulmonary disorders such as Asthma, COPD and infectious diseases. Hands-on demonstrations will allow participants to build practical skills in oxygen delivery, spirometry testing, inhaler technique, principles of bi-level non-invasive ventilation including bi-level mask fitting and much more. Participants will learn from international experts in the field.
“Participants will leave feeling confident, empowered, and enthused,” says course Chair Monica Fletcher, RN, MS.
