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.

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