Go beyond ventilator basics and take on challenging ventilator cases with real vents and diagnostics. COPD, Asthma, Refractory ARDS and Hypoxemia... This session will take management of these conditions beyond the classroom into a simulated setting with real ventilators and EM intensivists at bedside making responses to your maneuvers as realistic as possible. A low-fidelity simulation will be provided. If the management is not correct, we'll take the case to the end and let you try again to perfect your management of these difficult cases. This is the safe place to make mistakes so your decisions are spot-on when it matters.
Describe how the pathophysiology of Asthma, COPD, ARDS, and other conditions change ventilation mechanics.
Demonstrate how to monitor initial ventilator settings and make changes based upon a patient's respiratory mechanics.
Show how ventilator changes can address alveolar over-distension, VQ mismatch, alveolar compression, and other conditions.
