Metabolic Measurement Using Indirect Calorimetry In Mechanical Ventilation
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
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
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
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
Course: #1268Level: Introductory1 Hour
This introductory webinar discusses three common modes of mechanical ventilation including, Assist Control (Volume and Pressure) Synchronized Intermittent Mandatory Ventilation (SIMV), and Pressure Support (PS).

High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation (HFOV) and High Frequency Jet Ventilation (HFJV): Strategies for Success
Presented by Sherry Courtney, MD, MSc
Course: #1264Level: Advanced1 Hour
The course discusses indications and management strategies for neonates who require HFOV and HFJV modes of ventilation. A description of key parameters in lung recruitment and weaning is discussed, as well as the role of conventional ventilation.

Mechanical Ventilation during COVID-19: A Review of the First Year of the Pandemic
Presented by Rich Kallet, MS, RRT, FAARC, FCCM
Course: #1231Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course focuses on issues related to both invasive and non-invasive mechanical ventilation during the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic. The course includes the controversies over ARDS phenotypes, impact on ventilation strategy, patient self-inflicted lung injury, as well as ventilation practices and outcomes.

Mechanical Ventilation: High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation (HFOV) in Adult Critical Care Management
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
Course: #1110Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course focuses on High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation as a lung protective strategy that can be used in both neonates and adults with acute lung injuries, such as ARDS. The course discusses understanding best practice management and weaning from HFOV in adult critical care.

The Golden Hour and Beyond: NICU and Respiratory Care
Presented by Sherry Courtney, MD, MSc
Course: #1125Level: Introductory1 Hour
The presentation provides up to date information on resuscitation of the preterm infant at the limits of viability. The course provides information on surfactant use and respiratory support for preterm infants.

Mechanical Ventilation: Airway Pressure Release Ventilation (APRV) versus Bi-Level Ventilation
Presented by Duane Reed, EdD, RRT, RCP
Course: #1034Level: Introductory1 Hour
The purpose of this activity is to enhance the respiratory care practitioners' knowledge in the latest modes of mechanical ventilation such as Airway Pressure Release Ventilation and Bi-Level Ventilation.
