Lung and diaphragm protective ventilation and sedation: state of the art
Thursday, October 6th at 12 pm EST
Speaker: Dr. Ewan Goligher, Assistant Professor, Interdepartmental Division of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Toronto and a Clinician Scientist at the University Health Network
Join us to learn about the most recent advances toward personalization of mechanical ventilation. Learn about the importance of both lung and diaphragm protective ventilation strategies and this emerging approach to optimizing mechanical ventilation for acute respiratory failure.
The Importance of Diaphragmatic Monitoring and Detecting Synchrony
Friday, October 21st at 12 pm EST
Speaker: Dr. Michael Sklar, Staff Anesthesiologist & Intensivist, Dept of Anesthesia and Critical Care Medicine, Unity Health Toronto, St. Michaels Hospital, Toronto, Canada
We will discuss the importance of diaphragm monitoring and how this can be facilitated with NAVA. We will discuss ventilator waveforms and explore how NAVA can help identify different types of patient-ventilator desynchronies.
Change Management: How to implement NAVA in your NICU
Wednesday, October 26th at 12 pm EST
Speaker: Kim Firestone, MSc, RRT, Director of Respiratory Care and Clinical Outreach Services, Akron Children’s Hospital
It can be challenging to introduce a new modality such as NAVA ventilation however, the need for a common approach is imperative, especially in the case of rapid staff turnover or new professionals joining the unit for the implementation to be a success. This presentation will address a standardized approach for implementing NAVA within your unit.
An up-to-date Literature Review about Edi and NAVA in infants and adults
Thursday, Nov 3rd at 12pm EST
Speaker: Dr. Jennifer Beck, Independent Investigator and Scientist at University of Toronto (Dept of Pediatrics) and St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto, Canada
Join us for a comprehensive review of the latest NAVA/ Edi monitoring reviews and studies. Participants will hear about a variety of focus areas including patient-ventilator interaction, and lung protection to name a few.
NAVA vs conventional mechanical ventilation: systematic reviews and meta-analysis
Wednesday, Nov. 16th at 12 pm EST
Speaker: Dr. Ling Liu, Chief Physician, Dept of Critical Care Medicine, Nanjing Zhong-Da Hospital and School of Clinical Medicine, Southeast University, Nanjing, China
In this session, we look at recent studies and how meta-analyses and systematic reviews can help meet the aims of clinicians and decision-makers. We also look to examine questions under discussion by the research community. Join us to learn about some of the key, large studies and their outcomes.
Monitoring and interpretation of the Edi signal in adults and neonates
Wednesday, Dec. 7th at 12 pm EST
Speaker: Dr. Christer Sinderby, Independent Investigator and Scientist at University of Toronto (Dept of Pediatrics) and St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto, Canada
Meet the developmental force behind the NAVA technology. Learn how to understand and interpret the physiological signals behind NAVA and how to incorporate them into your lung and diaphragm-protective strategy.
