SMART Course on Mechanical Ventilation

SMART Course on Mechanical Ventilation


Why do we ventilate? Pathophysiology of gas exchange

· Controlled mechanical ventilation settings: basics

· How to assess respiratory mechanics at the bedside

· Strategies to set PEEP and to evaluate lung recruitment/over distension

· Imaging techniques to guide mechanical ventilation: Computed Tomography

· Imaging techniques to guide mechanical ventilation: Ultrasound + EIT

· Heart-lung interaction during controlled ventilation

· Assisted mechanical ventilation settings: basics

· Evaluating patient’s ventilator synchrony

· Non-invasive ventilations: indications and caveats

· Non-invasive ventilations: which interfaces and which modes?

· Non-conventional forms of ventilation: APRV/PAV/NAVA

· Transpulmonary pressure and lung volumes

· Weaning from mechanical ventilation

· Heart-lung interaction during assisted ventilation

· Prone position theoretical and practical aspects

· Role of ECMO in the treatment of acute respiratory failure

· SIMULATED CASES ON THE SCREEN (with real ventilators)
