EMOVA - Evidence-Based Management of Oxygenation, 
Ventilation and Airway Management

Healthcare Provider Courses

This is a two-day course focusing on the application of knowledge through team-based simulations for the management of oxygenation, ventilation and airway in the critically ill or injured patient.

Online pre-course reading, and activities are available through the AIEM learner management system and all participants are required to submit the pre-course activity before attending the programme.

Target Group
