Respiratory therapists are integral members of a healthcare team, collaborating closely with physicians, radiologists, and other healthcare professionals. Proficiency in recognizing radiology patterns empowers them to communicate effectively within the team, providing valuable insights to enhance the overall patient care plan. The introductory course reviews radiological imaging (chest X-rays) for common respiratory disease patterns and the role of respiratory therapists in interpreting these images and identifying abnormal patterns indicative of different respiratory conditions.

Electrocardiogram (ECG) Interpretation and Case Studies
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
Live WebinarThu, Aug 8, 2024 at 5:00 pm EDT
Course: #2110Level: Introductory1 Hour

For respiratory therapists, an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) serves as a valuable diagnostic tool to assess the cardiac function of patients. While respiratory therapists primarily focus on the respiratory system, they often encounter patients with cardiopulmonary conditions, where understanding cardiac activity is crucial. The lecture introduces electrocardiogram interpretation and case studies, reviewing ECG interpretation and management strategies.

Understanding the ROX Index: When is HFNC Enough?
Presented by Jessica Fino, EdD, RRT

This introductory course introduces mechanical ventilation concepts, including lung mechanics related to resistance and compliance. Evidence-based methods for respiratory mechanics measurement are discussed, along with identifying early signs of pulmonary deterioration and best practice goals for management.

AUTO-PEEP: Calculation and Maneuver
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
Live WebinarThu, Aug 15, 2024 at 5:00 pm EDT
Course: #2107Level: Introductory1 Hour

Click for all Live Webinar dates
Auto-PEEP, or Auto-Positive End-Expiratory Pressure, In respiratory therapy, is a critical phenomenon where insufficient time is allowed for complete exhalation, leading to an accumulation of air in the lungs before the next breath, potentially causing complications such as barotrauma and compromising oxygenation. The introductory course explores the determination of Auto-PEEP using extended methods, providing insights into the research on its identification and potential treatment measures.

MAP vs. NAP: The Impact of Mechanical Ventilation on Hemodynamics
Presented by Evan Richards, Advanced Practice Clinical Consultant, BSc, RT
Live WebinarMon, Nov 11, 2024 at 1:00 pm EST
Course: #2280Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Mechanical ventilators use positive pressure, unlike normal breathing, which uses negative pressure; as such, ventilators will always have some impact on hemodynamics. This course describes how to have the least detrimental impact on the lungs and other organs during NIV, CMV, and HFV.

A Tale of Two Time Constants: The Best of Times and the Worst of Times
Presented by Evan Richards, Advanced Practice Clinical Consultant, BSc, RT
Live WebinarTue, Nov 12, 2024 at 10:00 am EST
Course: #2281Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Time constants are critical for understanding best practices for mechanical ventilation, including NIV, conventional ventilation, and high frequency ventilation. This lecture defines time constants, how they change as lung injury evolves, and their importance for properly applying mechanical and non-invasive ventilation.
