Welcoming the guests, Chief Commercial Officer, Andi Regan-Murphy, said:
Clinical presentations included ‘why we use CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) and High Flow Oxygen Therapy (HFOT) for the Critical Care patient’, ‘An introduction to ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation)’, ‘The ICU liberation bundle’ and ‘The humanisation of ICU’. Armstrong Medical’s Clinical Education Team hosted a series of training workshops on setting up CPAP, understanding CPAP alarms, the correct way to fit CPAP masks and the benefits of HFOT. Day 2 culminated in a ‘Be Inspired To Be®’ wellbeing workshop, hosted by local inspirational author Belinda O’Neill, which saw the guests using creative techniques to help them deal with the stressful nature of their profession.
Working in partnership with respiratory healthcare professionals is a key focus of Armstrong Medical and customer visits are an integral part of this. The next CPD study event is due to take place in May when there will be a neonatal focus on perinatal involvement and neonatal simulation.
