Acquire extensive knowledge in advanced techniques and skills for mechanical ventilation in the critically ill patient—including the latest advances in ventilator technology—through lectures, interactive discussion, hands-on small group workshops, and case-based exercises. This comprehensive, interactive program emphasizes practical solutions for issues related to patients in respiratory failure.
- Ventilator modes
- Ventilator-induced lung injury
- Management of obstructive and parenchymal lung disease
- Management of hypoxemia
- Patient-ventilator synchrony
- Noninvasive ventilation
Prior to attending, you will receive materials that form the cognitive base of the course. You are expected to become familiar with the content prior to the course start in order to reduce the need for lectures, so the focus can be on hands-on, interactive training.
Pulmonary and critical care fellows, physicians, intensivists, advanced practice providers, and respiratory therapists are encouraged to attend.
Dr. Neil MacIntyre, a co-chair, explains the importance of both device and patient interaction – two important topics of this course.
