Hi all,

just wondering if anyone knew of a “vent certification”? I was told by a friend that at his service they required something along those lines.

Thanks,

Ben

Not sure about a vent certification but my company does a class that medics have to attend if they want to be vent “certified”. I don’t think they get an actual certification from it though.
I have seen courses that follow under ACLS classes that are vent/tracheostomy that go over basic vent and trach troubleshooting and use.

For most agencies, it’s some form of internal training, because multi-modal transport ventilators are beyond the level of initial Paramedic-level education
