Collapse 2017 A Guide to the Nutritional Assessment and Treatment of the Critically Ill Patient

Funded through an unrestricted educational grant from GE, the AARC has developed a nutritional guide for the assessment and treatment of the critically ill patient. As the role of the respiratory therapist emerges in the critical care area to include indirect calorimetry monitoring and testing, this guide will serve as an excellent resource to provide better understanding of the nutritional implications that drive metabolic testing and the subsequent treatment recommendations that come as a result of the extrapolated data. In addition, the role of the respiratory therapist will be discussed as a key and influential member of the interdisciplinary team when it comes to the nutritional management of the critically ill patient.

    Collapse 2017 BiLevel Ventilation Theory and Application

    This presentation provides an overview of the theory of BiLevel modes of ventilation with a brief discussion of application. Airway Pressure Release Ventilation and BiLevel Positive Airway Pressure will be compared and contrasted. Published clinical evidence, describe theoretical concepts for areas where evidence is lacking will be reviewed, and a BiLevel simulator that illustrates the interaction of set ventilator parameters and outcome patient variables will be demonstrated. This is an advanced lecture that assumes familiarity with basic mechanical ventilation and pressure control modes in general.
