It's Your Favorite... Ventilator Graphics!
Presented by Kelly Massa, BHS, RRT-NPS
Course: #1883Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Review the basics of ventilator waveforms, including time scalars and loops. Discuss interventions with abnormal waveforms.

Troubleshooting with Ventilator Graphics: Compliance and Elastance
Presented by Justin Phillips, BS, RRT-ACCS
Live WebinarThu, Oct 26, 2023 at 1:00 pm EDT
Course: #19731 Hour
Interpreting ventilator graphics can yield valuable real-time data in patients undergoing invasive mechanical ventilation. This course demystifies the complexities of troubleshooting changes in compliance and elastance using ventilator scalars.

Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia (VAP)
Presented by Benjamin Wang, MD
Course: #1880Level: Advanced1 Hour
The importance and clinical significance of Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia has reentered public attention due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This lecture covers known clinical literature and revisits the preventative recommendations endorsed by multiple US Academic Associations.

Arterial Catheter (A-line) Insertion
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
Course: #1867Level: Introductory1 Hour
An introductory course on arterial lines provides education on foundational concepts and reviews the technique for placement. Discussion on the research associated with the placement of an arterial catheter is explained.

Mechanical Power at a Glance
Presented by Keith Lamb, RRT, RRT-ACCS, FAARC, FCCM
VideoTextLive WebinarTue, Nov 28, 2023 at 10:00 am EST
Course: #1840Level: Advanced1 Hour
Mechanical power pertains to the energy applied to the lungs of mechanically ventilated patients. We discuss approaches to minimizing mechanical power and the sequelae of excessive mechanical power.

Solving a Medical Mystery: How COVID-19 Silenced Hypoxia
Presented by Rich Kallet, MS, RRT, FAARC, FCCM
Course: #1834Level: Advanced1 Hour
Silent hypoxia occurs in some COVID-19 patients affecting breathing perception and dyspnea. This course discusses the silent hypoxemia’s relationship between ventilatory drive, cardiovascular decline, and the phenomenon of sudden death.

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) and What You Should Know
Presented by Tim Gilmore, PhD, RRT, RRT-ACCS, RRT-NPS, CPFT, AE-C
Live WebinarTue, Dec 5, 2023 at 1:00 pm EST
Course: #1740Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Intermediate review course to highlight current definitions, clinical indices, and evidence-based mechanical ventilation interventions for ARDS.

Liberation from Mechanical Ventilation: A Physiologic and Historical Perspective
Presented by Rich Kallet
Course: #1786Level: Advanced1 Hour
The essence of weaning is that critically-ill patients can resume unassisted breathing when minute ventilation demands and mechanical disturbances in the pulmonary system improve enough that their respiratory muscles can handle increased workloads without developing fatigue. Therefore, this lecture explains how respiratory muscle physiology is impacted by pulmonary disease and also how ventilator strategies either facilitate or stymie weaning. Both aspects are essential for clinicians to master the art of weaning.

Advanced Resuscitation Review, Improving Patient Outcomes
Presented by Corey Mohnike, BS, RRT-ACCS
Course: #1828Level: Advanced1.5 Hours
This course aims to improve patient outcomes for anyone experiencing cardiopulmonary arrest or needing other advanced cardiac life support interventions. Reviewing the importance of preventing arrest and how high-performance teams can influence a patient's survivability of an arrest.

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.
