2017 Optimizing Mechanical Ventilation for Infants and Children

Durham, NC US
March 20, 2017 to March 22, 2017

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.
