Mechanical ventilation for Pediatric course:
The program of this course is designed to focus on recent advances and treatment modalities in pediatrics mechanical ventilation. The course is composed of two sections: a morning didactic learning followed by afternoon workshop where participants gain hands-on experience utilizing high fidelity manikins and state-of –art mechanical ventilators.
Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to:
Discuss the design principles and algorithms behind the latest ventilators.
Analyze ventilator graphics, and assess the appropriate procedures for optimal patient ventilator synchrony.
Understand management of ventilators in patients with parenchymal lung disease, obstructive disease, and severe hypoxemia.
