  Presented by Christiane Perme, PT CCS FCCM

May 1, 2021

Saturday: 9AM- 1:30 PM Eastern US Time*

Course Description:

Therapists play a critical role in the management of patients receiving mechanical ventilation. It is important to understand mechanical ventilation to optimize delivery of care and improve outcomes. This 4-hour webinar is ideal for any therapists who are currently or considering working with patients on mechanical ventilation in ICU, long term acute care hospitals, or home health services. The content is focused on essential information and includes an overview of basic pulmonary concepts, invasive mechanical ventilation, and non-invasive ventilation. The discontinuation of mechanical ventilation and specific therapeutic interventions to improve bronchial hygiene and functional status will not be addressed. This webinar will guide clinicians through the process of understanding the complexities of mechanical ventilation concepts in a simple and practical manner. It will also inspire therapists to immediately apply the learned mechanical ventilation material to clinical and academic practice.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify ventilator settings and patient data on ventilator screen

  • Describe the importance of PEEP

  • Explain three common modes of mechanical ventilation

  • Discuss two indications for non-invasive ventilation

  • Synthesize information for use in clinical and academic therapy practice
