Détails de la formation
This is a two-part webinar series, both webinars are 1 hour in duration. The first webinar is on November 2nd and the second webinar is on December 7th.
Webinar 1 - Capnography
November 2nd, 2023 - 12pm-1pm Eastern Time/ 5pm-6pm Central European Time
Webinar 2 - Esophageal Pressure Monitoring
December 7, 2023 - 11am-12pm Eastern Time/ 5pm-6pm Central European Time
Capnography, the continuous analysis and recording of the concentration of CO2 in respiratory gas (1), is an integral part of monitoring for a ventilated patient (2). There are two types of capnographs: mainstream and sidestream (2).
Esophageal pressure monitoring (EPM) is a minimally invasive technique for estimating transpulmonary pressure (3). Transpulmonary pressure is a measure of lung stress (3).
In part one on November 2nd, Lluís Blanch M.D., PhD will discuss:
- The concepts and application of capnography for monitoring a ventilated patient
- Capnograph waveforms - CO2 as a function of time and volume, sidestream and mainstream capnography, volumetric capnography and its application in the ICU
- Ventilation and perfusion, measure of dead space and effect of PEEP
In part two on December 7th, Ewan Goligher M.D., PhD, FRCPC will discuss:
- The theory behind esophageal and transpulmonary pressure monitoring
- How to perform EPM in the ICU and the application of transpulmonary pressure monitoring for ventilated patients
