Learn more about this event
This webinar will cover the pulmonary complications associated with COVID-19. We'll review normal pulmonary physiology followed by restrictive pulmonary pathologies associated with COVID-19, including pneumonitis, pneumonias, ventilator acquired pneumonia, and Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome. We'll also discuss basic ventilator functions as they relate to ventilator modes, ventilator settings, positive pressure, and enhanced oxygenation modalities, followed by the challenges posed by restrictive disease and how those challenges are met through management of the airway and the ventilator.
Why is this topic important?
This subject covers COVID-19, a respiratory virus that falls under pulmonary restrictive disease classification. This webinar will discuss how restrictive pathologies afect lung function, and the oxygenation challenges associated with managing patients who require an artificial airway and mechanical ventilation.
Who would benefit from this topic?
Coding professionals who work in specialties that see patients who acquire both acute and chronic pulmonary diseases.
What information or new skills will the attendee take away from this webinar?
The attendee will become familiar with normal lung functions, restrictive disease pattern, intubation, artificial airways, basic ventilator function, and challenges associated with life-threatening acute pulmonary pathologies.
