CPAP, BiPAP and high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) therapy are all non-invasive ventilation (NIV) tools that save lives. Discover the history of NIV, see the various NIV tools, patient selection criteria, standards of care, assessment, application, troubleshooting and NIV training tips. Disposable CPAP devices, BiPAP units and soon-to-be available prehospital HFNC units can drastically improve outcomes when used appropriately. Mike McEvoy will show you how NIV can improve the care you provide to patients.
Capnography reflects ventilation, perfusion, metabolism, acid-base balance and reflects the effectiveness of critical patient care interventions. Many educational programs teach capnography using static pictures of capnography waveforms, but by incorporating capnography into simulated patient care situations, you can give providers the knowledge to interpret end-tidal CO2 in fast-paced, real-life patient care situations.
