EtCO2 measurement is often called the “ventilation vital sign”. The applications for this physiologic tool continue to expand ultimately improving patient safety and outcomes. Join this webinar to explore the indications and clinical utility of end-tidal carbon dioxide (EtCO2) monitoring to support decisions related to cardiac and pulmonary function. Observe various patient uses, capnography waveforms and associated treatments of them.
Ventilator – Patient Asynchrony
- February 2, 2018 – 10:00 am or 2:00 pm EST
One of the ultimate goals of mechanical ventilation is to decrease a patient’s work of breathing. Join this webinar to understand how patient / ventilator asynchrony can effect ventilation, patient comfort and overall patient compliance. Learn how various ventilators respond to leakage and different breathing variables and how that response can affect ventilator – patient synchrony.

Good understanding of ventilator graphics is essential in properly managing patients being mechanically ventilated. The ability of a clinician to know and comprehend ventilator graphics can enhance their ability to do so. Join this webinar to appreciate the value of ventilator waveform analysis as it relates to the clinical decision making at the bedside of a mechanically ventilated patient. Observe how patient – ventilator synchrony and their comfort level can be observed and troubleshooted through this valuable utility.

Mechanically ventilated patients can often be associated with the adult population. Pediatric practitioners face unique challenges when attempting to translate or adapt adult-derived evidence regarding ventilation practices. Join this webinar to learn key concepts as it relates to ventilating pediatric patients. Explore different modes of ventilation and their advantages. Finally, understand important factors related to ventilating pediatric patients at home.
