Access event page

Association for Acute CardioVascular Care DD/MM/YYYY
Acute Cardiac Care

Focus on

  • Understanding the physiology of heart lung interaction with positive pressure ventilation:
    • on preload
    • on the right ventricular afterload
    • on the left ventricular afterload
  • Understanding the effects of non invasive ventilation in patient with left heart failure
  • Understanding left ventricular failure in difficult to wean patients
  • Choosing monitoring modalities in ventilated patients with LVF
  • Understanding the effects of IPPV on the right ventricle:
  • Understanding the effect of pulmonary vasoconstriction in hypoxic patients
  • Finding the right compromise to maintain lung recruitment without compromising the right ventricle.
  • Choosing the monitoring modalities in ventilated patients with RVF (use and common pitfalls)
