This episode of the Current Topics in Respiratory Care video series features Ira Cheifetz, MD, FAARC, presenting “Optimizing Mechanical Ventilation: Human Thought or Computer Algorithm.”
Cheifetz discusses if mechanical ventilation can be best optimized by reliance on computer algorithms, individual human thought, or a combination of both? Computer algorithms can standardize care and employ the most updated data; however, human thought allows individualization to specific patient conditions and includes the intangible concept of the “art of medicine.” This presentation will review the available data and provoke thought and discussion on this increasingly important and controversial topic.
