Mechanical Ventilation 2.0

March 1, 2021 to March 31, 2021

This course will review ventilation for an acidotic patient requires continuous monitoring and recognition of the patient requiring mechanical ventilation physiological state. The acidotic state and needed ventilatory requirements of the acidotic patient can be unrecognized upon initial and ongoing assessment, therefore the proper titration interventions necessary to improve this acidotic state are not being applied.

Nurse

Learning Objectives

Upon completing this course, the learner will 

  1. Understand and successfully perform ventilator assessment AEB
  2.  Appropriately describe parameters associated with ventilator assessment  PIP/VTE/RR
  3.  Understand and relate patient values to graphical representation on ventilator
  4.  Understand and successfully perform patient assessment receiving mechanical ventilation AEB
  5.  Relate and interpret the graphical representation on ventilator to the patient presentation
  6.  Relate and interpret the graphical representation on ventilator to the patient disease process
  7.  Relate the alarms to the patient’s clinical assessment
  8.  Transfer patient on traditional ventilator settings to STAT Hamilton T1 and optimize mechanical ventilator support
  9. Identify appropriate initial ventilator settings for patients being transferred to the Hamilton T1
  10.  Adjust ventilator settings in response to patient assessment and perceived ventilator needs
  11.  Transfer the patient from bedside ventilator on traditional modes of ventilation to the Hamilton T1
  12. Optimize mechanical ventilation o Identify conditions which require medical consult
  13. Relate blood gas values to patient presentation and ventilator alarms
  14.  Adjust mechanical ventilation parameters / request parameters to optimize mechanical ventilation
