Key points of this webinar:  

  • COVID-19 patients have unique characteristics with respect to respiratory support 
  • Non-invasive ventilation must be carefully monitored to avoid self-inflicted lung injury 
  • Invasive mechanical ventilation needs vary with time and appropriate settings are warranted 


Learning Objectives:
This webinar will enable caregivers of patients with COVID-19 to: 

  • Identify when invasive ventilation should be initiated 
  • Recognise the different disease phenotypes and their own needs 
  • Define the most appropriate respiratory support for individual patients 


Practical skills to be acquired after attending this Webinar
The user can:  

  • Anticipate failure of non-invasive ventilation 
  • Choose appropriate invasive mechanical ventilation settings 
  • Define which adjunctive therapies should be used 


Affective skills acquired after attending to this Webinar:
The user is aware of: 

  • Having a systematic approach enables one to better handle stressful situations 
  • Synergy with other specialities improves the efficiency of care 
  • Despite the lack of evidence-based medicine in this particular disease, one can still handle safely based on expert opinion
