SEMINAR OBJECTIVES

See chapters below for specific course descriptions.



CHAPTERS
Case Studies in Non-Invasive Ventilation: After Patient Selection

There are frequent discussions about which patients are a good fit for non-invasive ventilation; but decisions that come after patient selection are discussed less frequently. This case-based presentation will analyze the challenges and decisions clinicians face once it is determined the patient needs non-invasive ventilatory support.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.

Current Evidence in APRV for Trauma Patients

This presentation will explore recently published literature regarding the use of airway pressure release ventilation (APRV) for high-risk trauma patients. The presenter will guide the learner through an analysis of the scientific research, methods, and outcomes, as well as discuss other published studies and the clinical impact of these results.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.

ECMO: Who Would Ever Have Imagined?

The technologic and management aspects of extracorporeal life support (ECLS), including extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), have advanced more in the past five years than any other aspect of critical care medicine. ECLS devices are smaller, simpler, and safer than just a few years ago. The application of this technology has led to these critically ill patients being maintained awake and, in some circumstances, even ambulatory. This presentation will provide an overview of the history of ECLS and ECMO, discuss the current state of the field, and explore the potential future applications of this life-saving technology.

High Flow Nasal Cannula: Where Are We Now?

High flow nasal cannula (HFNC) is no longer a solution looking for a problem. Instead, it has shown to be a supportive therapy that is both safe and effective in various clinical situations. This presentation will review the current literature support for the use of high flow.

Interventions to Optimize Oxygenation During Mechanical Ventilation

Maintaining optimal oxygenation during mechanical ventilation can be a challenge, especially for patients with acute lung injury and ARDS. This presentation will discuss the balance between oxygenation and lung protection as well as describe methods to improve oxygenation, including PEEP titration, prone positioning, and inhaled vasodilators.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.


Speaker Information

Dean Hess PhD, RRT, FAARC


Mechanical Ventilation: Liberation and Long-Term

Patients who require mechanical ventilation for a longer period of time may require unique strategies for effective ventilation and, optimally, liberation from the mechanical ventilator. The presenter will define key terms related to long-term mechanical ventilation and liberation from mechanical ventilation as well as discuss effective weaning techniques and strategies for effective patient care.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.

Noninvasive Respiratory Support: Review of the 2018 RESPIRATORY CARE Journal Conference

In June 2018, the AARC Journal Conference focused on “Noninvasive Respiratory Support in Adults” was held in St. Petersburg, FL, in June 2018. The proceedings are published in the June 2019 issue of RESPIRATORY CARE and address topics such as physiology of noninvasive respiratory support, ventilator-induced lung injury, noninvasive respiratory support for various patient populations, the patient experience during noninvasive respiratory support, and noninvasive respiratory support at the end of life. The presenter, who served as a co-chair of this conference, will review the papers, discuss how noninvasive respiratory support has evolved over the past year, and potential future directions of noninvasive respiratory support.

VAE vs VAP: Different by Design

Mechanically ventilated patients are at high risk for developing complications and, for many years, critical care teams have been tracking the number of patients developing ventilator associated pneumonia (VAP). However, the ability to use VAP surveillance for prevention of complications is limited. In 2013, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released definitions for ventilator associated events (VAE). This presentation will identify the limitations of VAP, discuss the reasoning behind the CDC’s VAE definitions, and outline strategies respiratory therapists can use to prevent VAEs.
