Ventilatory Strategies for
the Flu Patient
John Davies, MS, RRT, FAARC, FCCP
Clinical Research Coordinator
Upon completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
This presentation will follow the progression of a patient presenting with a serious case of the flu. It follows the hypothetical patient through the continuum of care from ER to the intensive care unit. In the ICU, ventilatory strategies aimed at optimizing conventional ventilation and prevention of ventilator-induced lung injury will be discussed. The case then progresses to the scenario of failing conventional ventilation and other strategies that come into play. The evidence regarding the following strategies will be discussed: Noninvasive ventilation, use of neuromuscular blockers, prone ventilation, airway pressure release ventilation, high frequency oscillatory ventilation, nitric oxide, and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
