Noninvasive Management of Chronic Respiratory Failure for People With Neuromuscular Disease, Spinal Cord Injury, Obesity Hypoventilation, and Critical Care Neuromyopathy
Acute ventilator failure (AVF) is a common medical emergency reflecting an ever‐increasing burden of respiratory disease in clinical practice. This conference will address considerations for treatment, such as a multidisciplinary approach focusing on optimal oxygen therapy, medical management of the underlying cause, treating any precipitant factors and utilization of assisted ventilation.
Pulmonologists, Intensive Care Physicians, Critical Care Physicians, Neurologists, Palliative Care Medicine Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners and other interested healthcare professionals.
- Describe inspiratory and expiratory muscle aids.
- Analyze extubation/decannulation approaches for neuromuscular disease patients in chronic ventilatory failure.
- Assess survival and quality-of-life advantages for noninvasive vs. invasive respiratory management of people with chronic neuromuscular ventilatory failure.
Pre-registration is required. Please log in to register.
