Mechanical Ventilation: Modes Settings & waveforms

This critical care update webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of mechanical ventilation. Applying a variety of patient case studies to demonstrate how different modes & settings should be selected to optimise clinical outcomes.

Understanding Ventilation Modes and Settings

Understanding the diverse needs of patients requiring ventilation from Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) to obstructive lung disease to neurological impairments, requires in-depth knowledge of the principles of mechanical ventilation.

Tailoring Ventilation Strategies to Patient Pathophysiology

This webinar focuses on applying the nuances of the patient's pathophysiology to optimise their ventilation via tailored ventilation strategies.

You will learn how to select the appropriate mode of ventilation for different patients, understand what settings to adjust to optimise oxygenation and improve work of breathing and interpret ventilator waveforms to quickly recognise and troubleshoot ventilator related complications.

This webinar offers a succinct presentation to help you refine your skills in managing ventilated patients and understand the implications of ventilator settings.

What will be covered?

  • Ventilation modes including Controlled e.g. volume control (VC), pressure control (PCV), Supported e.g. pressure support ventilation (PSV), continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) Combined e.g. Synchronised Intermittent Mandatory Ventilation (SIMV), Pressure regulated volume control (PRVC/APRV)
  • Ventilator settings including Tidal volume, PEEP, pressure support, trigger, Rise time/Inspiratory flow/I:E ratio
  • Ventilator alarms including inspiratory pressure, minute ventilation
  • Ventilator parameters and waveforms including plateau pressure, alveolar pressure, flow waveform, pressure waveform
