About This Course

Advanced ventilator modes such as high-frequency, airway pressure release ventilation, and neurally assisted ventilatory assist are often utilized in the pediatric ICU for patients with respiratory failure. This lecture will discuss the physiology of each mode, evidence supporting each mode, and what patient populations may benefit from individual modes. What we have learned so far from clinical studies, animal models, and bench studies will be discussed.

Successful completion of this course requires a score of 70% on the post-test.
