The automation of ventilation modalities in the ED

Professor Ross Freebairn will be leading this discussion on ventilation in the emergency department and pre-hospital care settings. The application and modalities of ventilation have developed significantly over the past decade; many modern ventilators have automated or semi-automated ventilation modes, however these changes and advances in technology often outpace clinical practice. This session will explore current ventilation practice in the ED, and how utilisation of adaptive or automated ventilation modes can lead to improved patient outcomes and reduced workloads on clinical staff.
