Clinical Training

Throughout the history of SLE, we have always put our customers and patients first.

We believe that developing life support equipment should not be taken lightly, and that only the highest quality engineering is acceptable for our products. We know that only the highest quality training will allow you to confidently use all of our products effectively.

With that in mind we created our Clinical Support Department, responsible for worldwide clinical support and training. Working hand-in-hand with our Technical Training Department, the Clinical Support Department comprises of qualified medical and nursing staff and respiratory therapists.

End-User Training

SLE, or their Distributor, offers clinical support to all users of new SLE ventilators. This is always coordinated through the local Sales Specialist or Distributor to ensure effective use of your time. Over the course of the ventilator installation, a specialist will ensure that users receive in-depth training on SLE products.

On-Going Training

Once the ventilator has been installed and commissioned, SLE or your local Distributor’s clinical support staff, will spend time in the NICU, with the medical and nursing staff, to answer any questions that may arise and offer further support.

Specialist in vivo Workshops

SLE supports clinician-led ventilation seminars; the seminars are aimed at consultant level Neonatologists and Paediatric Intensivists.

In some countries SLE will sponsor a clinical expert to present a seminar using a prepared animal lung to demonstrate lung recruitment. This is usually aimed at Registrars, House Officers and senior nursing staff.

Additionally, SLE runs a series of in vivo ventilation workshops around the world each year. Originally based in Germany, there has been a growing demand to take these workshops to a wider audience of clinicians in many other countries. These courses are intended for clinicians and focuses on lung protective strategies. Using an in vivo model, these seminars are hands-on and include both conventional and high-frequency oscillation ventilation.

To date, courses have been held in India, Colombia, Argentina Chile, Croatia, Russia, the Philippines, Singapore, Dubai, Qatar and Bahrain as well as regular returns to Germany.
