As a result of this educational activity, webcast participants will be able to: DESCRIBE low tidal
volume ventilation is a basic tenet of lung protective ventilation for patients with ARDS and those admitted to the hospital who are at risk for ARDS; and UNDERSTAND prone positioning in patients with severe ARDS helps to improve mortality.

You’ll also learn about the following:

  • Pathogenesis of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS)
  • Treating ARDS
  • Whether it is better to correct the oxygen level or the carbon dioxide level
  • Practical strategies for paralyzing the patient
  • Nutrition in ARDS
  • Long-term consequences of ARDS
  • High frequency ventilation
  • Pressure control mode of mechanical ventilation
  • When to transfer the patient to an ECMO center

Today on MedNet21, we're going to discuss ARDS.

This talk is aimed to review the basic and advanced principles for management of the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). Learners should expect to hear about the diagnosis of ARDS, basic ventilator management and advanced steps when patients fail to respond to basic principles of management.
