Introduction to Pediatric Mechanical Ventilation
Expires After: Does not Expire

This course was designed to give pediatric residents a basic introduction to the principles of mechanical ventilation in the Pediatric ICU setting.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the indications for acute mechanical ventilation
  • Describe the major determinants of oxygenation and ventilation
  • Demonstrate how to adjust mean airway pressure and minute ventilation
  • Define the variables associated with mechanical ventilation (FiO2, PEEP, PIP, RR, Vt, I time)
  • Compare and contrast different modes of ventilation
  • Recognize the relationship between volume and pressure in lung compliance
  • Demonstrate how to adjust mechanical ventilation for patients with hypoxia and hypercarbia
