Lung Protective Strategies in Neonatal Ventilation




The presentation discusses unique aspects of newborn respiratory physiology, identifies the basic principles of neonatal ventilator-induced lung injury, emphasizes the importance of optimizing lung volume and tidal volume, differentiates between volume-controlled and pressure-controlled/volume-targeted modes of mechanical ventilation, and discusses the evidence in support of volume-targeted ventilation.

Successful completion of this course requires a score of 70% on the post-test.
