Collapse 2019 ECMO: Who Would Ever Have Imagined?

The technologic and management aspects of extracorporeal life support (ECLS), including extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), have advanced more in the past five years than any other aspect of critical care medicine. ECLS devices are smaller, simpler, and safer than just a few years ago. The application of this technology has led to these critically ill patients being maintained awake and, in some circumstances, even ambulatory. This presentation will provide an overview of the history of ECLS and ECMO, discuss the current state of the field, and explore the potential future applications of this life-saving technology.

    Collapse 2019 Pulmonary Rehabilitation: Where we’ve succeeded and where we’ve failed

    Pulmonary rehabilitation is of unquestioned benefit to COPD patients. The scientific basis of this therapy is firmly established. Yet it is available to a very small fraction of those who would benefit from it. In the cases of smoking cessation and inhaled bronchodilators, forces have been brought to bear to impact the vast majority of COPD patients. This lecture will examine the reasons for this discrepancy and suggest a way forward.

    Collapse Status Asthmaticus

    Respiratory therapists are a vital component of helping persons with asthma control their disease process through disease self-management education and asthma action plans. However, the CDC reported over 3,000 deaths in the US from asthma in 2016. All patients with asthma are at risk of developing status asthmaticus – an acute asthma episode with progressive severity poorly responsive to standard therapeutic interventions. This presentation will help the respiratory therapist identify status asthmaticus through patient assessment, describe pathophysiologic findings of the condition, and identify the best evidence-based practice for interventions.
