What you'll learn

Mechanical Ventilation is one of the most important topics in medical education especially for Doctors and Respiratory Therapists and stands to be a cornerstone in emergency departments. Originally, only respiratory therapists used to acquire knowledge on mechanical ventilation. But, nowadays, due to an increase in the respiratory infections and life-threatening diseases, knowledge about ventilation and ventilators has been extended beyond respiratory therapists i.e., all life graduates are allowed to learn in-depth about ventilation.

The care of patients receiving artificial mechanical ventilation is complex and requires skill and experience. Therefore taking a course or having in-depth knowledge on this topic is a must and worth learning. Because of the complexity of information, it should be learned from basics and should be diversified. Mechanical ventilation is a form of life support. Mechanical ventilation is a “life-sustaining treatment”. It is a treatment that can prolong life and takes over the work of breathing when a person is not able to breathe enough on their own. It provides time for establishing therapeutic management aimed at the triggering cause of injury until the patient improves physiologic balance. Mechanical ventilation is one of the most common interventions implemented in the intensive care unit. More than half of the patients in the ICU are ventilated the first 24 hours after ICU admission; comprised of individuals who have acute respiratory failure, compromised lung function, difficulty in breathing, or failure to protect their airway.

Advanced ventilator course is worth learning since this course gives extensive content on introduction to ventilator use in ICU, for COVID -19 patients, details about ARDS ventilation and Prone ventilation, weaning from mechanical ventilation, care of the patient post tracheostomy.

Key concepts covered include:

  • Introduction to Ventilator use in an ICU
  • Advanced ventilator training for COVID-19
  • ARDS Ventilation and Prone Ventilation
  • Ventilator Strategies in COVID-19 Patients
  • Weaning from Mechanical Ventilator
  • Disease-specific Ventilation
  • Complications and Risks of a Ventilator
  • Troubleshooting a Mechanical Ventilator with a Patient On
  • Care of a patient post Tracheostomy
