Respiratory Critical Care: COVID-19
Presented by Keith Lamb, RRT, RRT-ACCS, FAARC, FCCM
Video
Course: #1384Level: Advanced1.5 Hour
This lecture covers common and current practice as it pertains to the support of critically ill patients with COVID-19 and COVID-related Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (CARDS). The topics discussed are supported by the literature and evidence.

Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) For (COVID-19) Patients With Severe Disease
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
Video
Course: #1382Level: Introductory1 Hour
The purpose of this course is to provide respiratory therapists with a current review and evidence-based guidance for ECMO management of patients with severe disease, COVID-19.

Arterial Venous Oxygen Calculations for Respiratory Therapy
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
Video
Course: #1364Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course focuses on the baseline calculations of arterial-venous oxygen content and the various components involved. The course discusses the interpretation of oxygen consumption/delivery findings and the evaluation of shunting in critical care.

Metabolic Measurement Using Indirect Calorimetry In Mechanical Ventilation
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
Video
Course: #1352Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course is designed for respiratory therapists working in critical care understanding metabolic measurement using indirect calorimetry in mechanically ventilated patients. Objectives discuss the gold standard for measuring metabolism impacting the nutritional needs of the ventilated patient.

What’s Anesthesia Got To Do With It?
Presented by Steven Vela, MSNA, CRNA
VideoText
Course: #1312Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course focuses on the role of anesthesia and its impact on the respiratory system. The two specialties are interrelated, and the course provides an in-depth understanding of evidenced-based anesthesia guidelines and clinical decision-making for the critical care management of patients in intensive care units.

Mechanical Ventilation in Status Asthmaticus: A Strategic Approach To Ventilator Management And Monitoring
Presented by Justin Phillips, BS, RRT-ACCS
Video
Course: #1305Level: Intermediate1 Hour
The course focuses on ventilator scalar graphics to identify the presence of physiologic abnormalities in patients undergoing mechanical ventilation for severe refractory asthma. Discussion of monitoring and diagnostic techniques that aid in the ventilator management of the severe asthmatic will be introduced.

Back to Basics: Common Modes of Mechanical Ventilation and Applications
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
Video
Course: #1268Level: Introductory1 Hour

If You Cannot Breathe, You Cannot Swallow... Breathing and Swallow Coordination in Respiratory Disease
Presented by Angela Mansolillo, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
Course: #1249Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Respiratory and swallow systems are connected in a variety of ways that have implications for both the respiratory therapist and the dysphagia clinician. This course will describe those relationships in healthy individuals and in patients with respiratory disease and will provide options for interventions because...if you cannot breathe, you cannot swallow.

Dysphagia, Malnutrition, and Respiratory: Disease Breaking the Cycle
Presented by Angela Mansolillo, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
Course: #1250Level: Intermediate1 Hour
What happens in one part of the body impacts what happens in other parts of the body and nowhere is this more evident than in the interplay among respiratory diseases, dysphagia, malnutrition, and dehydration. This course will examine those interactions and provide clinicians with tools to “break the cycle” of disease and dysfunction.

When Bed Rest Causes Harm: Early Mobilization for the Mechanically Ventilated Patient
Presented by Nancy Nathenson, RRT
VideoText
Course: #1243Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course describes how early mobilization counteracts the negative impacts of prolonged bed rest on ventilator patients. Components of successful early mobilization programs are described, including potential barriers to implementation, specific benefits to the patient and hospital outcomes.
