Childhood Asthma, Attendance, and Action Plans

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, asthma is one of the leading causes of school absenteeism in the United States. The respiratory therapist has a unique role in not only the diagnosis and treatment of asthma but also in helping patients and families develop good asthma self-management skills to prevent the negative impact of asthma, including school absenteeism. This presentation will discuss asthma and its impact on student absenteeism, the role of the AAP as a surveillance tool in school districts and the importance of students with asthma having an AAP on record.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.

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.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.


Speaker Information

Martin Keszler MD


Non-invasive Ventilation for the Pediatric Patient

Non-invasive ventilation is a vital modality for the acutely ill patient and is becoming more commonly utilized in the pediatric population. This presentation will review indications and management strategies of NIV in pediatrics. Challenges associated with interface and compliance will also be discussed.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.


Speaker Information

Dana Evans MHA, RRT, RRT-NPS


Optimizing Lung Protection in the NICU: What Does the Future Hold?

Ventilating our tiniest patients can be difficult and there are many variables to consider as we seek to support the respiratory status of neonatal patients. This presentation will outline mechanisms of lung injury and discuss evidence-based approaches for noninvasive ventilation, surfactant delivery techniques, and lung protective strategies for conventional and high-frequency ventilation.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.


Speaker Information

Rob DiBlasi, BSRT, RRT, RRT-NPS, FAARC


Pediatric ARDS: Do We Have Consensus?

Providing mechanical ventilation to the pediatric patient with ARDS can be vastly different than ventilating an adult patient with ARDS. Is there a best practice or consensus for mechanical ventilation modalities and strategies for this population? This presentation will discuss the pathophysiologic characteristics of pediatric ARDS and the evidence supporting various mechanical ventilation strategies. Sponsored by an unrestricted educational grant from Dräger Medical, Inc.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.
