Description

CPA Clinical Webinar Program

Speaker: Anastasia Newman, MSc(PT), MSc(RS), PhD Student

DESCRIPTION OF SESSION:

This webinar is intended for Physiotherapists working in Intensive Care Units.

For physiotherapists providing care in intensive care units, mechanical ventilation and other forms of non-invasive ventilation are commonplace. For many physiotherapists, working with patients who are mechanically ventilated can be concerning, especially for new graduates or those who work in the intensive care unit casually. The type of invasive or non-invasive ventilation can significantly impact the ability to provide physiotherapy interventions and a working knowledge of mechanical ventilation is essential to ensure the appropriate therapy is initiated.

As evidence continues to mount supporting early mobilization of patients with critical illnesses, critical care physiotherapists are required to provide treatment in conjunction with mechanical ventilation. Having an understanding of the usual modes of ventilation, strategies for weaning, the risk/benefits of mechanical ventilation and the role of physiotherapy are necessary in order to provide safe and effective care.

The information presented in this teleconference is applicable to both entry-level physiotherapists and experienced physiotherapists working in critical care areas. It is also applicable to physiotherapists who provide weekend service in the intensive care unit.

Although much of this presentation can be followed by participants using printed copies of the powerpoint, it would be useful to have electronic access for participants to permit demonstration and identification of key aspects of mechanical ventilation settings and waveforms.

OBJECTIVES:

Upon completion of this workshop participants will be able to:

1. Differentiate between the various modes/settings/adjuncts of mechanical ventilation

2. Identify non-invasive forms of ventilation commonly used in critical care environments

3. Summarize the weaning process and the risks/benefits of both endotracheal intubation and tracheostomy.

SPEAKER BIO:

Anastasia Newman completed both her Bachelors of Kinesiology and her Master of Physiotherapy at McMaster University in 2004 and 2006 respectively. Since graduating in 2006 she has worked as a critical care physiotherapist in both the cardiac surgery and neurotrauma intensive care units at the Hamilton General Hospital and holds an Assistant Professorship with the McMaster School of Physiotherapy. In 2009, she returned to McMaster and completed her thesis-based Master of Rehabilitation Science in 2011 and began her PhD in May 2014, investigating the role of physiotherapy and early mobilization in the management of patients with critical illnesses. Anastasia has been a member of the Cardiorespiratory Division executive since 2014 and has assisted with both course development (Cardiorespiratory Foundations) and instruction over the past three years.
