Course Summary

This 45 minute eCPD tutorial discusses mechanical ventilators, which are an integral part of an intensive care unit. There are a variety of patients that may benefit from mechanical ventilation such as those with hypoxemia (Pa02 <60mmHg) in spite of oxygen therapy, hypercapnic patients (PaC02>60mmHg) or those at risk of impending respiratory failure. Mechanical ventilation requires a dedicated nurse to care for the patient. This tutorial will provide an overview of how to care for a patient on a ventilator, including:

  •  Indications to ventilate
  • Types of mechanical ventilator
  • Troubleshooting
  • Nursing considerations
  • Record keeping
  • Weaning from the ventilator
  • Common complications
