Frequing Out About High Frequency

Keith Kohutek, BSRC, RRT-NPS
Regional Clinical Specialist, Bunnell Inc.

Saving babies is hard! High Frequency Ventilation is often used to help both prevent and treat neonatal lung injury.  Often clinicians will shy away from using HFV not fully appreciating the foundations upon which HFV can be beneficial.  This presentation will take a closer look at what HFV is and broaden our understanding of this unique form of ventilation.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a common, often untreated problem, affecting approximately 1 in 7 surgical patients. It is also associated with significant perioperative complications if left untreated. Dr. Thompson will speak on the value of screening for OSA, common complications of OSA in the perioperative period, and management of these patients to help get them through their procedures safely.
