Upcoming Webinars

ICON Academy Webinars

Waveform Graphics: Part 1
  • Date: Oct 21, 2019 7:00 AM Eastern
  • Speaker: Geof Lear, RRT

Waveform Graphics Part 1 will be discussing the time scaler waveforms of the basic control types seen in mechanical ventilation. The lecture will also demonstrate how the basic control type waveforms will be displayed in various modes of ventilation. The lecture will also compare the historical and proprietary nomenclature used in mechanical ventilation with the ventilator mode taxonomy developed by Robert Chatburn.

Objectives
  1. Differentiate “Chatburn” Mode taxonomy versus historical mode nomenclature
  2. Recognize basic ventilator time scaler graphics
  3. Recognize how basic patient interaction with the ventilator will be displayed in waveform graphics

APRV Concepts
  • Date: Oct 21, 2019 12:00 PM Eastern
  • Speaker: Geof Lear, RRT

Airway Pressure Release Ventilation or APRV, while being available for almost 30 years is still often referred to as a “New” mode of ventilation. This lecture will familiarize the participants with the concepts behind the application of one form of APRV referred to as H-APRV. H- APRV has been developed by Dr. Nader Habashi at the University of Maryland’s Shock Trauma Center.

Objectives
  1. Cite the benefits of spontaneous breathing
  2. Explain the concepts behind APRV as a form of protective lung ventilation
  3. Explain the role of pressure and time in lung recruitment and stabilization

  • Date: Oct 21, 2019 3:00 PM Eastern
  • Speaker: Maria Madden MS, RRT-ACCS

This is the second part of a two part series on airway pressure release ventilation (APRV). This lecture will delve into the specifics of setting up the parameters used in P or personalized APRV.

Objectives
  1. Describe the principles of recruitment and gas exchange when using APRV
  2. Explain the benefits of spontaneous breathing
  3. Identify the physiologic rationale for the different settings used in APRV
