Session: A Prof Freebairn will be exploring the concepts of automated and adaptive ventilation modalities, its efficacy, and impact on lung protection.
As adaptive and semi-automated, or “intelligent”, approaches to mechanical ventilation becomes more common place in modern ventilators, this session will explore the prevalence of this technology, what role it plays with lung protective measures and what this means for intensive care clinicians.
Strategies to reduce the impact of difficult-to-treat infections on the ICU.
