This episode of the Current Topics in Respiratory Care video series features Thomas Piraino, RRT, presenting “Diaphragm Protective Ventilation.”
Piraino discusses how ventilator-induced diaphragm dysfunction is a growing concern in the literature. Various methods exist for monitoring patient effort, but minimal studies have used this information to adjust ventilation. This lecture will discuss the concept of diaphragm protective ventilation and present possible values to monitor for targeting an approach to ventilation that aims to protect the diaphragm.
