Description

In support of nurses during the COVID-19 pandemic, I recorded a series of free videos focusing on the care of critically ill patients. There are 7 videos, each 15 - 20 minutes long, covering the basics of mechanical ventilation for a patient with respiratory failure.

These videos are targeted to nurses who work in low acuity critical care and non-ICU areas.

The video series includes:

  • Intubation Basics
  • Basic Ventilator Settings
  • Lung Protective Ventilation for ARDS
  • Parameters we Measure in ARDS
  • Prone Positioning & Rescue Strategies in ARDS
  • Arterial Line Basics
  • Awake (non-intubated) Proning
  • What Nurses Are Saying About This Course!
