TOPICS:

 

Insights on Non-Invasive Ventilatory Support 8:00 AM

Non-invasive ventilation has been shown to be an effective treatment for acute hypercapnic respiratory failure, particularly in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It is essential that NIV is applied in an appropriate clinical area by appropriately trained staff using the optimal ventilator mode, settings, and interface for that patient with adequate monitoring. Dr. John Bach, who is an expert in Non- Invasive Ventilatory Support system will extrapolate survival strategies and the advantages of noninvasive respiratory management.

 

Asthma in African American Children 9:00 AM

African American suffer grater mortality and morbidity than Caucasians. Black children are two times as likely to be hospitalized for asthma and are four times as likely to die from asthma as White children. The percentage of people with asthma taking daily medicine to control asthma is lower among Hispanics and African Americans than among Whites. Mr. Shenfield will emphasis the role of Health care practitioners in identifying and reporting the symptoms of African American Children with Asthma.

 

Capnography 10:00 AM

Waveform capnography can now be used at all provider levels to better assess patients in respiratory distress, cardiac arrest and shock. Capnography offers reliable feedback about the severity of a patient’s condition and how they respond to treatment. Mr Thomas Petty will discuss the ways to collect ETCO2 information that can be helpful to clinicians.

 

Pathophysiology of ARDS and Non Ventilatory Treatment 11:00 AM

Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a common entity in critical care. ARDS is associated with many diagnoses, including trauma and sepsis, can lead to multiple organ failure and has high mortality. Mr. Petty will bring new insight on ventilation strategies based on clinical evaluation of the patient.

 

Palliative Care 101- Reality vs Myths 1:00 PM

Although palliative and hospice care share the same principles of comfort and support, palliative care begins at diagnosis and continues during treatment and beyond. Ms. Susanne Walther will identify the importance of health care proxy designation and communication concepts in difficult situation.

 

Discharge Planning:  A Multidisciplinary Approach 2:00 PM

A systematic approach to develop the structure and key processes of the discharge planning system is critical in ensuring the quality of care and maximizing organization effectiveness. Communication and coordination across various healthcare parties and provisions were also suggested to be a key focus. Ms. Leena Mukalel will discuss different aspects of discharge planning and the role of multidisciplinary team. 

 

Hyperinflation Therapy and Recruitment Maneuvers 3:00 PM

Recruitment maneuver denotes the dynamic process of an intentional transient increase in transpulmonary pressure aimed at opening unstable airless alveoli, which has also been termed alveolar recruitment maneuver.
