SEMINAR OBJECTIVES

See chapters below for specific course descriptions.


CHAPTERS

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.

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.

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.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.

Recognizing and Correcting Patient-Ventilator Asynchrony

Ensuring patient-ventilator synchrony is a vital component of the respiratory therapist’s role in critical care. This webcast will focus on providing the respiratory therapist with the tools to identify various types of asynchrony using ventilator graphics and recommend appropriate interventions to improve the patient’s condition.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.


Speaker Information

Eric Kriner BS, RRT


Frail DNI subjects with end-stage chronic respiratory failure and their opinion of NIV

In this presentation, the speaker will discuss the Editor’s Choice of the September 2019 issue of RESPIRATORY CARE "Outcome of frail do-not-intubate subjects with end-stage chronic respiratory failure and their opinion regarding noninvasive ventilation to reverse hypercapnic coma". The presentation will focus on the research design and interpretation of the results.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.

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.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.

Michael Klompas MD, MPH, FIDSA, FSHEA


Ventilator Alarm Safety

This presentation will define ventilator alarm safety and identify the patient safety risk associated with ventilator alarms as well as discuss the results of the 2016 HTF ventilator alarms survey. The presenters will also provide potential strategies for ventilator alarm safety based on available literature.

This course is approved for 1.0 CRCE.
