COVID-19 : Mechanical Ventilation Course

Course Description

This course provides a concise review of the essential skills of mechanical ventilation. The declared National Emergency due to COVID-19 has resulted in unique healthcare challenges as the pandemic continues.

Across the nation, healthcare facilities  are utilizing Registered Nurses (RNs) from non-ICU specialty areas to prepare for the predicted high-volume of COVID-19 ventilated ICU patients. This highly-trained workforce comes from Step-Down Units, PACU, Same Day Surgery and Emergency Departments. RNs may potentially care for mechanically ventilated patients with no or limited experience.

COVID-19 patients present with unique physiological conditions similar to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS), requiring high PEEP and FiO2. Care  for these patients is complicated, requiring critical mechanical ventilation skills.
