VENTILATOR ESSENTIALS

Current Seminars Seminars By Date Seminars By Region Schedule Objectives Faculty

As the central component of life support, mechanical ventilation is a commonly encountered, essential aspect of critical care. While critical care nurses are challenged with managing the patient-ventilator system, we often have minimal opportunity to establish and build upon a foundation of cognitive knowledge in this complex area. Nonetheless, rapid advancements in ventilator technology continue to occur, requiring us to continually update and refine our knowledge base.

Taught by a critical care nurse for critical care nurses, this seminar begins with a brief review of physiology, then moves into an organized and understandable presentation of the key concepts related to mechanical ventilation. Opportunities for discussion and questions are provided in a structured yet supportive environment.
