Artificial Ventilation Basic | Advanced

AQAI has created learning contents to become a respiratory expert.

Artificial Ventilation – Basics

The module “Artificial Ventilation - Basics" is designed to show the basics of artificial ventilation.

The user will be able to…

  • understand the concepts of artificial ventilation, such as flow control, pressure control, volume control, flow trigger, pressure trigger.
  • understand compliance and resistance.
  • setup various ventilators to achieve stable ventilation conditions.
  • interpret curve traces and values derived from the ventilator.

Artificial Ventilation – Advanced

This module creates a feeling of treating the patient as a whole. A number of scenarios show the more sophisticated modes of artificial ventilation and allow numerous settings to be evaluated and optimized.

The user will be able to…

  • understand the concept of nonlinear compliance curves, lower and upper inflection points.
  • understand the concept of time constants.
  • define the correct PEEP.
  • understand the difference between extrinsic and intrinsic PEEP.
  • understand the concepts of pressure support and mixed mandatory / spontaneous ventilation modes, such as BIPAP or APRV.
  • support various kinds of spontaneous activities.
  • optimize ventilator settings according to various rules: low tidal volume ventilation, avoid barotraumas, avoid atelectrauma, recognize limits of ventilation.
  • interpret curve traces and values derived from the ventilator.
