Respiratory Management of Patients With Neuromuscular Weakness Series: Review Recommendations and Best Practice
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
Course: #1827Level: Intermediate1 Hour
An essential concern in neuromuscular diseases (NMD) is respiratory failure. This course reviews guidelines and evidenced-based literature on the best practice respiratory management of patients with NMD. It is part of an NMD series but can be viewed as a stand-alone learning experience.

Sixty Years of Mechanical Ventilation in the Treatment of ARDS: What Lessons Should We Have Learned and Where Might We Be in 2042
Presented by Rich Kallet, MS, RRT, FCCM, FAARC
Course: #1784Level: Advanced1 Hour
We largely think about mechanical ventilation focused on the future, at the cost of not appreciating how past practices still influence current understanding about the care we give: often to our detriment. This lecture is a story of how we arrived at this moment and describes how artificial intelligence might revolutionize how we deliver care in the near future.

Understanding Organ Donation After Circulatory Death and the Role of the Respiratory Therapist
Presented by Thomas Nakagawa, MD, FAAP, FCCM
Course: #1826Level: Advanced1 Hour
This webinar reviews organ donation after circulatory determination of death (DCD) and the respiratory therapist's role in this process. The process of DCD is described, and ethical considerations are reviewed.

Assessment of Pulmonary Mechanics by Measuring Transpulmonary Pressure
Presented by Rich Kallet, MS, RRT, FCCM, FAARC
Course: #1785Level: Advanced1 Hour
Using airway pressure measurements to assess potential lung injury is limited because it represents stress applied to both the lung and chest wall. This lecture describes the technique of measuring esophageal pressure to isolate lung stress, and uses a clinical scenario to demonstrate how this helps setting the ventilator in severe ARDS.

Troubleshooting with Ventilator Graphics: Obstructive Physiology
Presented by Justin Phillips, BS, RRT-ACCS
Course: #1823Level: Advanced1 Hour
Interpreting ventilator graphics can yield valuable real-time data in patients undergoing invasive mechanical ventilation. This course helps demystify the complexities of troubleshooting obstructive airflow physiology and trending changes in severity using ventilator scalars.

Presented by Linda Nozart, MPH, BSRT, RRT, AE-C
Course: #1810Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course provides the practitioner with a better understanding of healthcare models related to professional growth opportunities in asthma care management.

Stress Management and Prevalence for Respiratory Therapists
Presented by Katlyn Burr, MSM-HCA, RRT, RRT-NPS, AE-C
Course: #1818Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course describes the prevalence of stress and associated conditions in healthcare and respiratory care. The course reviews management and detection strategies for respiratory therapists to prevent burnout and secondary traumatic stress.

Person First. Patient Last: Equity vs. Equality in Patient Education
Presented by Gabrielle Davis, MPH, MA, RRT, RRT-ACCS, RRT-NPS, TTS, CHES, LPC, NCC
Course: #1811Level: Introductory1 Hour
Appropriate patient education is imperative during appointments and hospital stays to ensure patients are armed with the necessary tools to be successful once they return home. Unfortunately, all people learn differently, and literacy (health literacy as well) levels vary across the nation. Respiratory therapists must personalize general educational information that would best fit that patient versus of using materials and techniques that simply cater to their diagnosis.

Oscillating Between Dysfunction and Function in Healthcare
Presented by Tabitha Ogle, MS, BCC, RRT
Course: #1817Level: Introductory1 Hour
The oscillation principle is - a periodic fluctuation between two things based on energy changes. Working in the clinical care setting in healthcare is a high-cost emotional labor occupation. The course discussion provides education on the complexity of leadership, factors for team success, self-investment, and career options as a respiratory therapist.

Discharges and Readmissions: How Can I Help?
Presented by Claire Aloan, MS, RRT-NPS, FAARC
Course: #1804Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course provides an overview of the discharge components and factors of potential readmission. The importance of avoiding readmissions and methods and resources to assist in this process is provided.
