If you care for critically ill patients, you should be familiar with the ventilator.
However, if you have never seen one or handled or cared for patients connected to one, this is an opportunity to learn what mechanical ventilation is all about [forget about what you see in those Hollywood movies].
What Is Mechanical Ventilation?
Put it this way–mechanical ventilation is a life-saving treatment that assists or helps very sick people to breathe.
People who are very ill can lose the ability to breathe independently, either from injury, chronic illness that affects the physiology of breathing, or surgery.
A mechanical ventilator is a medical equipment designed to assist with breathing or to take over the entire breathing process.
In this course, Ogunlabi David will introduce you to the basic concepts of mechanical ventilation [history, types, parts, indications, ventilation settings and mode, ventilator alarm settings, etc.].
You will also learn about respiratory mechanics, ventilation-perfusion mismatch, gas exchange, interpretation and intervention, and more.
What makes it even more exciting is that you will have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with other clinical professionals.
