Interventions to Optimize Oxygenation During Mechanical Ventilation

Speaker Dean Hess PhD, RRT, FAARC Date Jul 14, 2016 1:05 PM

Maintaining optimal oxygenation during mechanical ventilation can be a challenge, especially for patients with acute lung injury and ARDS. This presentation will discuss the balance between oxygenation and lung protection as well as describe methods to improve oxygenation, including PEEP titration, prone positioning, and inhaled vasodilators.
