What you'll learn

Mechanical Ventilation is one of the most important topics in medical education especially for Doctors and Respiratory Therapists and stands to be a corner stone in emergency departments. Originally , only respiratory therapists used to acquire knowledge on mechanical ventilation. But, now a days, due to increase in the respiratory infections and life threatening diseases, knowledge about ventilation and ventilators have been extended beyond respiratory therapists i.e., all the life graduates are allowed to learn in depth about ventilation.

The care of patients receiving artificial mechanical ventilation is complex and requires skill and experience. Therefore taking a course or having an in depth knowledge on this topic is a must and worth learning. Because of the complexity of information, it should be learnt from basics and should be diversified. Mechanical ventilation is a form of life support. Mechanical ventilation is a “life-sustaining treatment”. It is a treatment that can prolong life and takes over the work of breathing when a person is not able to breathe enough on their own. It provides time for establishing therapeutic management aimed at the triggering cause of injury until the patient improves physiologic balance. Mechanical ventilation is one of the most common interventions implemented in the intensive care unit. More than half of the patients in the ICU are ventilated the first 24 hours after ICU admission; comprised of individuals who have acute respiratory failure, compromised lung function, difficulty in breathing, or failure to protect their airway. Pediatric and neonatal critical care has been practiced for more than 50 years and invasive mechanical ventilation is among the most common and extensive ICU procedures with about 30 % of pediatric patients supported by this technique.

This certificate course on pediatric mechanical ventilation gives an thorough going insight on Basic Concepts, how to intubate a suspected pediatric COVID-19 patients, advantages and disadvantages, indications and contraindications, weaning from the ventilator etc.
