Home Mechanical Ventilation UK Meeting

The HMV UK Meeting provides a multi-disciplinary network for established clinicians and healthcare professionals that are either caring for patients dependent on home mechanical ventilation, or that have an interest in continual care using highly advanced specialist technologies.
