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.

MD Flavor of the Month…High Frequency Jet versus Oscillatory Ventilation
Presented by Kelly Massa, BHS, RRT-NPS
Course: #2122Level: Intermediate1 Hour
High-frequency ventilation can be a challenge to set up, especially for those who use it infrequently. This course helps equip the learner with an understanding of the differences between the HFOV and HFJV ventilators and how to initiate/troubleshoot both.

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.

Advanced Monitoring During Mechanical Ventilation, Let’s Look at the Other Side, presented in partnership with the Society of Mechanical Ventilation
Presented by Ehab Daoud, MD, FACP, FCCP
Course: #1971Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course explores the intricacies of advanced monitoring techniques essential for optimizing patient care during mechanical ventilation. In this comprehensive course, we delve into various methods for monitoring during mechanical ventilation and examine the evidence supporting newer monitoring techniques.

Standardized Education for Ventilatory Assistance (SEVA) Crash Course, presented in partnership with the Society of Mechanical Ventilation
Presented by Robert Chatburn, MHHS, RRT-NPS, FAARC
Course: #1972Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course explores Standardized Education for Ventilatory Assistance (SEVA), a groundbreaking program designed to bridge the growing knowledge gap in ventilator technology, taking learners from novice to advanced expertise. This standardized approach integrates physics, physiology, and technology, providing a comprehensive platform to elevate healthcare providers' skills in mechanical ventilation.

Troubleshooting with Ventilator Graphics: Restrictive Physiology
Presented by Justin Phillips, BS, RRT-ACCS
Course: #1973Level: Intermediate1 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.

Troubleshooting Mechanical Ventilator Alarms and Alarm Fatigue
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
Course: #1931Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Mechanical ventilator alarms are vital for monitoring patients and the ventilator's status. The Joint Commission addresses this patient safety issue by including alarm safety as a National Patient Safety Goal. The course reviews alarm fatigue occurring when practitioners ignore important alerts, risking harm to patients, and it is crucial to set them correctly based on patient conditions and standards to ensure safety.

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.

Mechanical Power at a Glance
Presented by Keith Lamb, RRT, RRT-ACCS, FAARC, FCCM
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.
