Topic: TSANZ/ASA Position Paper on Ventilatory Support at Home for Children: An Update

This webinar will discuss the recently published joint position paper from TSANZ/ASA on ventilatory support at home for children. The original consensus statement from the TSANZ Australasian Paediatric Respiratory Group in 2008 has been revised by a working group comprising of paediatric respiratory and sleep medicine physicians with experience in home ventilation from across Australia and New Zealand. This webinar will provide an update for the audience on this topic, highlighting the key changes within the document and providing the opportunity to pose questions to members of the working group.
