Hope for HIE
  • Date: May 13, 2021 12:00 PM Eastern
  • Speaker: Betsy Pilon, Executive Director for Hope for HIE

HIE families have a unique roadmap in the NICU with specific keystone moments that define their experience, perhaps a bit differently than other babies in the NICU. With so much uncertainty, and a wide range of outcomes, families need specific care, communication and connection to help positively impact outcomes.

Objectives
  1. Gain an understanding of ways to communicate about HIE - diagnosis, prognosis, resources - to families
  2. Gain an understanding of the value of peer-to-peer support to improve outcomes for children and families
  3. Gain an understanding of referral pathways to peer-to-peer support organizations such as Hope for HIE

Waveform Graphics 1: Basic Concepts and Volume Control Ventilation
  • Date: May 04, 2021 3:00 PM Eastern
  • Speaker: Geof Lear, RRT

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. Graphics 1 is the first of a 3-part series explaining and demonstrating exactly what we are observing as we watch the screen displays. Graphics 1 will cover basic concepts in mechanical ventilation concepts and explore the graphics as seen in volume control ventilation.

Objectives
  1. Discuss the basic concepts of gas movement in mechanical ventilation
  2. Distinguish basic differences in the expiratory flow waveform
  3. Observe the interactions between pressure, flow, and volume waveforms during volume control ventilation

Delivering Prone Therapy in the ICU
  • Date: May 05, 2021 7:00 AM Eastern
  • Speaker: Maria Madden MS, RRT-ACCS, Maria K Cocoros, BSN, RN

Prone Therapy has been a standard of treatment for acute respiratory distress syndrome since the 1970's. This lecture will familiarize the participants with the basics of prone therapy as well as nursing and respiratory therapy considerations.

Objectives
  1. Review history of and indications for prone therapy
  2. Discuss Nursing and Respiratory Therapy Roles, Responsibilities and Considerations for Prone Therapy
  3. Review how to manually prone a patient

Waveform Graphics 2: Pressure Control, Adaptive Pressure Control and APRV
  • Date: May 05, 2021 3:00 PM Eastern
  • Speaker: Geof Lear, RRT

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.

Objectives
  1. Differentiate Pressure Control Ventilation from Pressure Support Ventilation
  2. Recognize basic pressure control waveforms
  3. Recognize basic TCAV APRV waveforms

Ventilator Application of a No-Leak Speaking Valve
  • Date: May 06, 2021 12:00 PM Eastern
  • Speaker: Gail M. Sudderth, RRT

This presentation will highlight the evidence-based benefits of early intervention and restoration of airflow to the upper airway with the use of a no-leak speaking valve on patients in the ICU with tracheostomy and on mechanical ventilation. Suggested guidelines and information to promote safe and efficacious use of a speaking valve will be given.

Objectives
  1. Describe the unique design of a no-leak speaking valve
  2. Describe the clinical benefits of restored airflow to the upper airway through use of a no-leak speaking valve by adult patients with tracheostomy
  3. List steps for proper upper airway assessment to predict successful use of a no-leak speaking valve during mechanical ventilation, including review of various settings and safe alarm management

Waveform Graphics 3: CO2 and Advanced Monitoring Systems
  • Date: May 06, 2021 3:00 PM Eastern
  • Speaker: Geof Lear, RRT

This lecture will discuss monitoring of exhaled CO2 both as end tidal CO2 which is CO2 over time and single breath CO2, which is CO2 over volume or the CO2 loop. We will discuss the components of the waveform and the clinical information that can be gathered from the waveforms. We will then discuss advanced graphic monitoring systems that will allow the clinician to view lung mechanics in real time and observe how changes to the patients lung mechanics are displayed in these modern graphics settings.

Objectives
  1. Discuss possible uses for CO2 trending
  2. Discuss set up and evaluation of an advanced monitoring system
  3. Understand the differences between end tidal and single breath CO2 measurement
