2017 Optimizing Mechanical Ventilation for Infants and Children
This conference offers hands-on experience optimizing mechanical ventilation for infants and children. Clinicians will participate in lectures and interactive clinical workshops focused on the skills necessary to optimize patient-ventilator interactions using the latest advances in conventional ventilation, high-frequency ventilation, and ventilator graphics analysis. Time will be allocated at the end of each presentation for open discussion with the audience.
- Identify current guidelines to provide optimal lung protective ventilation for infants and children.
- Identify guidelines for the use of non-invasive ventilation in pediatrics.
- Identify strategies for the ideal monitoring of the pediatric patient with severe respiratory failure.
- Describe the physiology and prevalence of acute lung injury
- Discuss the principles of lung protective ventilatory strategies
- Explore the use of adjunct respiratory therapies for acute hypoxemic respiratory failure
- Illustrate the cardiopulmonary effects of mechanical ventilation
- Identify strategies to optimize patient-ventilator synchrony for infants and children
