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.
