Asthma Management in Children 

Asthma is the most common chronic lung disease in children. According to the CDC, it affects approximately 6 million children in the US. The principal aims of asthma management in childhood are to obtain symptom control that allows individuals to engage in unrestricted physical activities and to normalize lung function. This Asthma webinar series focuses on correct diagnosis, appropriate pharmacology, delivery systems and continual assessment. 

 

Positional OSA 

Successfully managing sleep patients in today’s changing healthcare environment is more challenging and costly than ever.  It has become increasingly important to diagnose sleep conditions more efficiently, make therapy easier for patients to live with, and ongoing care more productive and cost-effective. It’s time to start looking at Positional OSA (POSA) more closely. Not only rethinking assumptions about POSA diagnosis, but also to taking a fresh look at positional devices and new clinical evidence available. 

 

Early Warning System (EWS) Scores 

Early warning system (EWS) scores are tools used by hospital care teams to recognize the early signs of clinical deterioration to initiate early intervention and management. These tools involve assigning a numeric value to several physiologic parameters (e.g., systolic blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, level of consciousness, and urine output) to derive a composite score that is used to identify a patient. Recent modifications have improved the consistency of patient outcomes.  

 

Noninvasive Ventilation

The use of noninvasive ventilation has markedly increased over the past two decades, and noninvasive ventilation has now become an integral tool in the management of both acute and chronic respiratory failure, in both the home setting and in the critical care unit.

 

Patient Monitoring

In today’s complex healthcare environment, the demands on clinicians are immense. Patient Monitoring systems are designed to help clinicians make informed decisions and reduce variation in care delivery. This series of webinars will focus on monitoring strategies to reduce risk of complications during intra-hospital transportation of acutely and critically ill patients. Additionally, one webinar discusses approaches to overcoming the challenges in implementing new monitoring technology. 

 

Neonatal Care

Today, more newborns and high-risk neonates have a better chance of thriving because of the advances in medicine and the dedicated care they receive from neonatal nurses on the front line. Developmental positioning, reducing risks of unplanned extubation and early identification of hyperbilirubinemia have contributed to improved outcomes.
