Mechanical Ventilation, From Physiology to Clinical Practice

Toronto IDCCM Education Course

Event Details

Wednesday, April 26 - Friday, April 28, 2017

• Course Directors: Laurent Brochard, Ewan Goligher, Niall Ferguson 

• Organization: IDCCM, CCCF, St Michael’s Hospital 

• Accreditation: Continuous Education and Professional Development 

• Partners: Respiratory Therapists training centre; Industry (ventilation, monitoring) 

Learning Objectives

Course Goals:

1. Enhance ICU clinicians’ understanding of the physiological principles informing assessment and management of mechanical ventilation and strengthen their skills in assessing patient-ventilator interaction. 

2. Increase awareness of the many relevant aspects of conventional and novel invasive and non-invasive mechanical ventilation techniques. 

3. Enhance ICU clinicians’ knowledge of the management of specific clinical problems in mechanically ventilated patients: acute respiratory distress syndrome, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease exacerbations, and difficult weaning from mechanical ventilation. 

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the course, participants will be able to...

1. Explain and assess basic physiological aspects of patient-ventilator interaction: respiratory mechanics, respiratory muscle activity and function, patient-ventilator synchrony, and ventilator-induced lung and respiratory muscle injury. 

2. Determine why and when mechanical ventilation can be a treatment, a supportive therapy or a source of complications. 

3. Describe the optimal approach to liberating patients from mechanical ventilation and conduct a comprehensive clinical assessment to identify and treat causes of difficult ventilator weaning. 

4. Deliver evidence-based management of acute respiratory failure using both non-invasive and invasive ventilatory techniques for the following conditions: acute respiratory distress syndrome, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and weaning from mechanical ventilation.
