Stabilizing Lung Approach: A Novel Method of Protective Ventilation for ARDS”
  • Date: Oct 24, 2022 12:00 PM Eastern
  • Speaker: Gary Nieman BA, Associate Professor, SR Research Scientist

Current protective ventilation strategies have not further reduced ARDS-related mortality in the 22 years since the ARDSnet low tidal volume study was published. This lecture will analyze why current protective ventilation strategies have not been effective at further reducing mortality and offer a novel ventilation method as a possible solution to the problem

Objectives
  1. List the components of ARDS pathophysiology that make the lung so susceptible to a secondary ventilator induced lung injury (VILI)
  2. Describe current protective ventilation strategies and discuss why they are not able to address the pathophysiologic changes caused by ARDS that cause VILI
  3. Discuss the mechanisms by which a novel Stabilizing Lung Approach (SLA) will normalize the pathophysiologic changes caused by ARDS, significantly reducing VILI and ARDS-related morbidity and mortality

Esophageal Manometry, Mechanical Ventilation and Morbidly Obese Patients
  • Date: Oct 25, 2022 3:00 PM Eastern
  • Speaker: Kyle Hitchens BS, RRT-ACCS

We will review the prevalence of morbid obesity, classifications, and outcomes. Discuss how the difference in physiology and anatomy poses unique challenges to mechanical ventilation. Esophageal manometry is one of many methods that can be used to optimize Positive End-Expiratory Pressure (PEEP).

Objectives
  1. Review Prevalence/Statistics of Morbid Obesity. Definitions of the Classes of Morbid Obesity
  2. Ventilator Management, Esophageal Manometry and Optimizing PEEP
  3. Outcomes and Summary
