Ventilator Management in the Emergency Department
The purpose of this continuing education program is to inform and educate healthcare providers on the initiation and management of mechanical ventilation in the emergency department (ED). Mechanical ventilation management in the ED is often extended because of the delayed availability of ICU beds. The healthcare provider will become aware of the criteria for the different modes of ventilation and management in different disease processes. This course will explain the factors of troubleshooting and avoiding lung injury in mechanically ventilated patients.

This course is a video seminar-style course, please do not purchase the print option!


At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize the different strategies of ventilation in the emergency department (ED).
  2. Identify the different modes and methods of ventilator support.
  3. Identify the initial setting and management of ventilation in various disease stats in ED.
  4. Recognize troubleshooting issues of the ventilator.
