What our students say

Craig Jolly

University Medical Center, Lubbock, TX

We made the module about ASV a requirement for all our therapists, as a preparation before the formal training with the specialists. It was very helpful. I also did many of the e-learning modules myself and find them wonderful and very easy to use.

Your e-learning courses really helped me learn how to use the ventilators. Your ventilators are very easy to use and very reliable. I liked the modules a lot. Thank you very much.

Good analogy at beginning with the balloon and hands. Great visuals. Really appreciate that text is written at the side as well as read aloud - invaluable for me as I can read sentences while paused and then play to revise the material.

The whole course was excellent.

We offer free training in mechanical ventilation. Here's why

We believe that in order to achieve the best possible clinical outcome for ventilated patients, a solid knowledge of mechanical ventilation and of the devices is essential.

Our ventilators offer a high level of customization to best meet the needs of all patients. Being able to take full advantage of all possibilities offered by our ventilators means being able to better answer to your patients' needs.

For this reason, we continuously invest in offering a free e-Learning platform for online training on mechanical ventilation and ventilators, that is open to all students, and allows anyone to learn wherever and whenever they want.
