Various modes of mechanical ventilation are explained including pressure, volume, dual control, and spontaneous modes. Topics discussed are indications, goals, hazards, safety settings, and graphics associated with mechanical ventilation. Additionally, pharmacology associated with the management and care of mechanically ventilated patients are examined. Course offered once a year (fall).
