Managing Acute Respiratory Failure in Special Populations

October 18 @ 1:30 pm - 2:45 pm CDT

Description:

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.

Learning Objectives:

  1. 1. Provide an approach to the management of patients with acute respiratory failure and severe neurological emergencies.
  2. 2. Provide an approach to the management of patients with acute respiratory failure and severe congestive heart failure and hemodynamic instability.
  3. 3. Provide guidance to the management of patients with acute respiratory failure who have traumatic injuries.
  4. 4. Develop a framework to care for the pregnant patient with acute respiratory failure.
