Optimising Ventilation and Oxygenation To Protect Vital Organs in COPD and Hypercapnic Patients

Supplemental oxygen is often used to prevent hypoxia in patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Preventing hypercapnia and hyperoxia are crucial for optimising vital organ oxygenation and preventing complications.

ESICM organised an hour-long webinar on Thursday 16 July 2020 to discuss ventilation and oxygenation strategies that optimise oxygenation and help prevent hypercapnia, thus reducing complications.

The presentations included:

  • Delivering oxygen for Chronic Hypercapnic COPD patients
  • Monitoring the Oxygen Reserve To Avoid Hypercapnia
  • Making sure the brain and vital organs are well oxygenated / Cerebral Oxygenation

These were followed by a Q&A session with all the experts.
