Ventilation Strategies in Newborns with Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy: Preventing Further Harm

04/08/2021 12:00 PM       The key to the successful long-term outcomes in infants with HIE is prompt, consistent expert intervention and management. This presentation will review evolving evidence to promote neuroprotection in infants that require ventilation that is diagnosed with hypoxic, ischemic brain injury.

APRV Pediatrics

03/30/2021 12:00 PM       Airway pressure release ventilation (APRV) is a ventilator mode that has previously been considered a rescue mode but has gained acceptance as a primary mode of ventilation. In clinical series and experimental animal models of extrapulmonary acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), the early application of APRV was able to prevent the development of ARDS.

Neonatal Neuroprotective Strategies for the Prevention of Brain Injury

03/11/2021 12:00 PM       Protecting the preterm and term infant brain is essential for the health and well being of the newborn during the NICU stay and after discharge. Strategies to promote homeostasis and incorporating families in the daily care will be discussed and reviewed. The program will discuss recent evidence-based techniques for promoting normal neurodevelopmental outcome.

APRV Concepts

03/09/2021 12:00 PM       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.

Waveform Graphics 2: Pressure Control, Adaptive Pressure Control and APRV

02/23/2021 12:00 PM       The integration of ventilator graphics into the machine platforms has opened new vistas into the observation and evaluation of the interface between the patient and the mechanical ventilator. In the past, a pressure manometer and numeric readings gave us a limited view of the patient-ventilator interface. Now ventilator graphics allow us to see, in real-time the full interface between the patient and the ventilator. In graphics 2 we will explore pressure ventilation to include Pressure Control Ventilation, Pressure support Ventilation, Adaptive Pressure Control Ventilation, and basic APRV waveforms.
