Vapotherm just wrapped up the AACN’s National Teaching Institute Conference on Thursday, May 22. One of the many highlights of the conference was in-booth education. The Conference allows exhibiting companies to offer educational courses on the show floor, giving nurses the opportunity to earn credits towards maintaining their licenses.
Vapotherm offered sessions on Nursing Care Considerations for Using High Flow Therapy to Relieve Respiratory Distress. Participants learned how High Flow Therapy fits among traditional oxygen therapies and non-invasive pressure ventilation (NIPPV). Also discussed were the clinical indications, applications of use, and nursing care considerations for managing patients on High Flow Therapy.
Vapotherm will be extending the course to a full hour-long session for nurses to earn contact hours. Stay tuned for more information!
