The big impact of lung protective ventilation

Get a deeper understanding of how to fit every patient’s lung ventilation needs. How can you effectively ventilate neonatal, paediatric or adult patient's lungs while protecting them at the same time? This continues to pose a major challenge in clinical settings.

How can you improve patient outcomes whilst maximising hospital’s resources? It’s worth paying more attention to customised ventilation. Ensuring gas exchange in the lungs, accelerating the weaning process from mechanical ventilation, treating the underlying causes of disease, and facilitating the patient's recovery. Learn why all of that is vital and how to implement in your working surroundings.
