Airway and Mechanical Ventilation

Explore airway and mechanical ventilation management strategies for the critically ill patient during this two-day hands-on course.

Topics covered include:
  • Airway assessment
  • Emergent intubation
  • Airway management pharmacology
  • Rescue techniques for maintaining ventilation
  • Traditional and novel techniques for difficult airway management in adult patients
  • Indications, contraindications, and benefits of ventilatory support modes
Attendees will learn and practice with expert faculty at skill stations encompassing laryngoscopy, fiberoptic intubation, surgical approaches to airway establishment, and rescue strategies. Skill stations on mechanical ventilation will focus on mode selection, troubleshooting patient-ventilator dyssynchrony, and alternative modes available for the critically ill adult patient.

Award Winning ICU Designs (2021)

Functional ICU design is crucial to delivering quality critical care. To honor the best examples of such design, an annual awards program is cosponsored by the Society of Critical Care Medicine, the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, and the American Institute of Architects Academy of Architecture for Health. This interactive web-based program contains the top projects since 1992, with each project reviewed in short video segments. The companion PDF contains features and floor plans of each winning unit. This product provides a complete, contemporary resource for creating a facility that fulfills the needs of both ICU patients and care givers. The 2021 product has been expanded to include winners of the new COVID-19 Design Citation Award.

Clinicians, Patient Outcomes, and Implicit Bias

From the SCCM Podcast: Implicit bias is a form of automatic and unintentional bias that affects judgments, decisions, and behaviors. Implicit bias can pose a barrier to the diagnosis and treatment of critical illness. Ludwig H. Lin, MD, is joined by Varun U. Shetty, MD, to discuss ways that critical care professionals can mitigate diagnostic delays and errors by being aware of their own implicit biases. Dr. Shetty is an adult intensivist who focuses on caring for critically ill patients in global health settings. He has worked both in the United States and abroad in resource-limited settings and has presented several lectures on healthcare disparities with a specific focus on the care of critically ill patients.

This podcast is supported by an educational grant from the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS) and funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, which supports the development and dissemination of resources and programs to improve the timeliness, accuracy, safety, efficiency, patient-centeredness, and equity of diagnostic outcomes for patients in the United States.

0.25 hours of accredited continuing education credit is available for this podcast through June 30, 2024. Add this complimentary product to your cart and complete the checkout process. You will receive an email with further instructions.

Deep Dive: Acute Kidney Injury and Organ Crosstalk

More than 50% of patients develop acute kidney injury (AKI) in the ICU during critical illness. Mortality among patients with AKI and multiorgan failure in the ICU is reported to exceed 50%. Understanding physiologic interactions between the kidney and other organs, including the heart and lungs, is of utmost importance to streamline management strategies during AKI. Approximately 2% to 30% of AKI survivors in the ICU progress to end-stage renal disease. Patients who recover renal function during their ICU stay also have a significant risk of developing progressive renal dysfunction. This half-day course will review these complex interactions and explore appropriate and timely diagnostic tools and adjusting therapeutic interventions to improve outcomes in patients with AKI.

Date: Saturday, January 20, 2024

Time: 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
