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 fine tuned through this valuable utility.

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 affect ventilation, patient comfort and overall patient compliance. Learn how various ventilators respond to leakage and different breathing variables and how that response can affect Patient-Ventilator Asynchrony.

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.

Open-circuit mouthpiece ventilation (MPV) is a form of non-invasive ventilation (NIV) that can be used to provide portable daytime ventilatory support and complements nocturnal NIV via “mask” interfaces. Join this webinar to review the indications, techniques, advantages and disadvantages of MPV as well as, explore recent data that supports how MPV has been proven to be a safe and valuable mode of ventilation.
