This course is a study of various non-conventional methods of mechanical ventilator support for adult patients and ventilator management strategies for pediatric and neonatal particular to specific pathophysiologies. Ventilator management protocols are also discussed. Case studies are used to demonstrate appropriate patient assessment and management strategies. Emphasis will be placed on understanding concepts of critical care monitoring, ventilator waveforms and special procedures. Included in the discussion will be assessment and diagnosis of particular maladies leading to the implementation of appropriate care plans in this patient population. Ventilation and oxygenation concepts are addressed as they relate to both conventional and special techniques of mechanical ventilation.
