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.

COVID-19: Early Critical Care Bedside and Operational Lessons

The US has been preparing for an influenza pandemic for several years. However, the current pandemic caused by novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has demanded flexibility and unique responses from the health care system in general and respiratory therapists specifically. This presentation will focus on what we know to date about the COVID-19 pandemic and lessons learned from both a clinical and operations perspective.

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.

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.

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.

Visualizing Mechanical Ventilation

Respiratory Therapists are important for the safe monitoring of mechanically ventilated patients. Applying imaging techniques such as electrical impedance tomography (EIT) and ultrasound to mechanically ventilated patients is gaining popularity in the literature. This lecture will discuss these techniques and where Respiratory Therapists play a key role. This presentation was previously released as part of the 2019 AARC Current Topic educational series.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.
