HealthStream®: Mechanical Ventilation: Pressure, Volume, and Dual Modes
Please choose your accreditation type.
Patients with Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) experience lung inflammation which results in a moderate to severe loss of lung function. These patients almost always require invasive mechanical ventilation. This continuing education activity will review the basics of pressure-control ventilation, volume-control ventilation, and dual modes of ventilation.
