Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Breakfast Session - Respiratory management during COVID-19: What have we learnt and where to from here?

During this symposium, Dr Sanj Fernando will present his personal experience at Liverpool ED, during the Delta wave of COVID, that was primarily concentrated in South West Sydney. Following this presentation Rory Monro will discuss how in the early period of the COVID pandemic, a specialised team was created at Fisher and Paykel Healthcare to understand the impact respiratory support therapies have on the risk of infection for caregivers. This short talk is an overview of the understanding of respiratory bio-particles, alongside the latest clinical research on the relative risk of different therapies.
