Join us Tuesday, August 14 for one or both of our valuable half-day sessions designed to immerse the learner in two important topics for pulmonary and critical care physicians and team members. View our other half-day session, Thoracic Ultrasound for the Pulmonologist and Intensivist.
Learn how the use of graphic displays of airways mechanics helps optimize mechanical ventilation support for difficult-to-treat patients. Common problems, such as providing ventilation support for the patient with severe obstruction and COPD or the hypoxemic patient with ARDS, will be addressed. Evidence-based information will be highlighted during case management presentations and discussions.
Bundle: Purchase both courses at a special rate!
