Mechanical Ventilation

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.

Topics include:

  • Ventilator modes
  • Ventilator-induced lung injury
  • Management of obstructive and parenchymal lung disease
  • Management of hypoxemia
  • Patient-ventilator synchrony
  • Noninvasive ventilation
