Managing Acute Respiratory Failure in Special Populations
October 18 @ 1:30 pm - 2:45 pm CDT
This session will build on principles of mechanical ventilation in the care of patients with acute respiratory failure in the setting of cardiovascular/cardiothoracic, neurological/neurosurgical, pregnancy, and other unique populations that might not be commonly encountered for intensive care clinicians working in traditional medical ICUs. This course will focus on clinical decision-making using ventilator graphics, clinical clues, and other methods to address these unique populations. Conventional and non-conventional methods will be highlighted based on the evidence-based literature.
- 1. Provide an approach to the management of patients with acute respiratory failure and severe neurological emergencies.
- 2. Provide an approach to the management of patients with acute respiratory failure and severe congestive heart failure and hemodynamic instability.
- 3. Provide guidance to the management of patients with acute respiratory failure who have traumatic injuries.
- 4. Develop a framework to care for the pregnant patient with acute respiratory failure.
