Why diaphragm matters?

Topics

The importance of diaphragm activity in ventilation strategy

Below are two videos discussing importance of diaphragm activitie during a ventilation strategy. 

First presentation, Dr Ewan Goligher discuss how the presence of diaphragm weakness can significantly impact clinical outcomes during mechanical ventilation, by  increasing the risk of difficult weaning, prolonged weaning and hospital mortality,


In the second video, Dr. Salvatore Grasso discusses how monitoring diaphragmatic activity can help you adapt ventilation to the patient’s needs.

Hemodynamic Management in Sepsis Patients

Everyone is at risk of developing sepsis. Globally, up to 50 million people are affected by sepsis, every year. Every 2.8 seconds, one patient dies from sepsis and associated complications. Often, it can be prevented by vaccination, clean water and hygiene, safe childbirth, and preventing hospital-acquired infections (HAIs). However, sepsis is often underdiagnosed, especially at an early stage where treatments are more successful.
