Ventilators (AC, IMV and PEEP, oh my!)
The contribution that mechanical ventilation can make to sustaining life is monumental. Broken down to its simplest form, the ventilator is used to push air into the lungs; usually when the patient is unable to adequately meet their own needs. Using a variety of maneuvers, the ventilator can also enhance the lung's ability to exchange gases. This course will discuss indications for mechanical ventilation, basic ventilator settings and management of the patient on a ventilator.
1. Define indications for mechanical ventilation
2. Define basic ventilator settings
