Mechanical ventilation is often necessary in cases of hypoxic or hypercapneic respiratory failure, shock, coma, or cardiac arrest. The mechanical ventilation course covers the various modes of mechanical ventilation, initial ventilator orders, ventilator troubleshooting, ventilator complications, indications for lung-protective ventilation, indications for obstructive lung ventilation, options for ventilator analgesia and sedation, prognostic indicators in prolonged mechanical ventilation, and criteria for extubation.
The HPC Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures course will teach you how to perform ventilator management in addition to endotracheal intubation, stylet-guided intubations, laryngeal mask airway (LMA) placement, King tube placement, or fiberoptic intubations. central venous access, ultrasound-guided central line placement, ultrasound-guided peripheral IV access, arterial lines, POCUS exams (E-FAST exams, RUSH exams), thoracentesis, paracentesis, lumbar puncture, chest tube placement, pigtail catheter placement, needle thoracostomy, procedural sedation.
Our mechanical ventilation training is a component of our live Hospitalist and Emergency Procedures CME course which teaches clinicians how to perform the 20 most essential procedures needed to work in the ER, ICU, and hospital wards.
