Immature lungs and underdeveloped breathing require extremely gentle ventilation and advanced technology. The aim of any ventilation strategy is therefore to support the premature infant’s respiratory system without inducing damage to the lung or the brain. During this webinar we will discuss pathophysiology of lung injury and the most common lung injuries associated with lung immaturity and mechanical ventilation such as Transient Tachypnoea of the Newborn, Meconium Aspiration Syndrome, Congenital Pneumonia, Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia and Hypoplastic lung. We will also present advanced ventilation strategies such as High Frequency Oscillatory Ventilation.
The lecture will be presented by Linda Pretorius, Developmental Care Consultant, South Africa and hands-on demonstration will be performed with Draeger Babylog VN600, neonatal ventilator by Margarita Singer, Regional Marketing Manager Neonatal Care, Draeger.
