HOW DO I RESCUE THE SEVERELY HYPOXEMIC PATIENT?

CLINICAL CHALLENGES SESSION

~WITH CLAUDE GUERIN

In this essential presentation, expert Claude Guerin will guide participants through the clinical steps in managing patients suffering from hypoxemia. 

The terms hypoxemia and hypoxia are commonly confused. Hypoxia refers to a state in which oxygen supply is insufficient, whereas hypoxemia refers specifically to patients with very low PAO2.

In his presentation, Guerin will focus on the latter. He will utilise a real case of a severe ARDS patient to discuss the timely use of five interventions to improve oxygenation: PEEP, including use of oesophageal pressure, neuromuscular blockade, prone position, recruitment manoeuvers and inhaled nitric oxide.
