[tab] [tab_item title=”Conference Information”]Striving for positive outcomes for patients on mechanical ventilation continues to be a challenge for healthcare providers. Patients experiencing respiratory failure from acute or chronic illness, trauma, and post-surgical care continue to grow in numbers and complexity. Chronic respiratory diseases, unintentional injury, (which includes trauma), influenza/pneumonia, and septicemia are still in the top 10 leading causes of death for all age groups in the United States.1 Mechanical ventilation is used as an adjunct to keep patients alive while other interventional procedures can be used to reverse the injury or disease process.

This conference is designed to enhance the multi-disciplinary team approach and continuing professional development to effectively manage all respiratory failure patients needing mechanical ventilation. Target audience is physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, nurses, pre-hospital, chaplains, and all other healthcare personnel working with this patient population. It is the goal of the multi-disciplinary team to provide the best care in order to facilitate the best possible recovery and patient outcomes.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, WISQARS™, www.cdc.gov/injury/wisqars.

Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, respiratory therapists, nurses, and all other healthcare personnel working with this patient population will benefit from this activity.
