This session will focus on the understanding and management of acute respiratory failure in the patient with COVID-19-related acute respiratory failure. Prerecorded clinical simulation scenarios will be presented and stopped for live polling of the audience for next steps in clinical decision-making. The faculty panel will provide clinical input along the way to augment the various approaches and options available for a live and interactive discussion. This will be followed...

Tracheostomy is one of the most common procedures undertaken by pulmonologists, intensivists, trauma surgeons, otolaryngologists, thoracic surgeons, and anesthesia specialists. This session will start with a brief 5-minute introduction, with one to two polling questions at key junctures in the presentation and a tutorial highlighting the indications, contraindications, unique considerations with...
Approximately 10% of emergent intubations can result in a failed airway. Rapid recognition and management of the failed airway is essential to patient survival. This session will focus on the management of the failed airway, which includes optimal bag-mask ventilation, placement of an extraglottic airway (EGA), and, if all else fails, a willingness and ability to perform cricothyrotomy.
This ultrasonography simulation session will provide an opportunity to build ultrasound skills in two critical components of echocardiography: image interpretation and clinical applications. Specifically, this session is designed to focus on the patient with an unknown cause of hemodynamic failure. Image acquisition will be demonstrated on live models while image interpretation will...
This simulation-based session will focus on the management of bronchoscopy-induced bleeding. Faculty would demonstrate and discuss techniques to avoid and manage bleeding during bronchoscopy, including the use of endobronchial blockers, ablative modalities, and indications for embolization and surgery. This session will primarily demonstrate to the learners the use of endobronchial blocker placement and single...
The session will provide an overview of advanced critical care and then focus on a useful application: the measurement of stroke volume and its derived values. A brief introduction and demonstration of the essentials of echocardiography will be provided and discussed, followed by an in-depth demonstration of the measurement of stroke volume. Lastly, expert faculty will discuss stroke volume and advanced critical care echocardiography, and answer questions of learners.
Tracheostomy is one of the most common procedures undertaken by pulmonologists, intensivists, trauma surgeons, otolaryngologists, thoracic surgeons, and anesthesia specialists. This session will start with a brief 5-minute introduction, with one to two polling questions at key junctures in the presentation and a tutorial highlighting the indications, contraindications, unique considerations with COVID, and selecting early and late possible complications requiring troubleshooting and management (specifically, unique considerations with Covid, accidental decannulation, and bleeding case scenarios).
This simulation-based session will focus on the understanding and management of ventilator graphics in the routine care of ICU patients. Faculty will provide brief clinical vignettes followed by video demonstration of ventilator graphics. The audience will then choose a response through polling software. This will be followed by an explanation of the correct answer and faculty comments of clinical correlations.
