Ever wonder what is next beyond ventilator basics? This class will refresh your knowledge of basic ventilator management, then move on to more advanced concepts. You will learn about: Noninvasive positive pressure ventilation modes with common clinical indications for using these modes; Indications and benefits of invasive modes of ventilation, including pressure control, volume control, and spontaneous ventilation modes. ABG interpretation as well as waveform capnography will be examined and demystified. The class concludes with hands-on time with lungs to see the changes of PEEP, aggressive bagging, and other ventilatory maneuvers.

Contact Hours: 4.0
Speaker: Karen Charlton, BSN, RN
“I very much enjoyed the presentation. Karen explained all the concepts thoroughly and invited questions. I LOVED the pig lung demonstration – my understanding of the anatomy and physiology of respiration is exponentially greater after this seminar.”
“I have a better understanding of the PEEP setting. I am able to guide RN’s on the unit to have an understanding of vent patients and the transition coming off and going back on the vent.”
