Salwa Kamal, Consultant of Neonatology, Al Galaa Teaching Hospital, Coordinator of pediatric and neonatal Courses at Egyptian Medical Syndicate.
Speaking about “Pulmonary mechanics”
The physical and mechanical action of the lungs, diaphragm, ribs and chest wall during respiration. It includes airflow, lung volume, airway resistance and lung compliance.
Speaking about “Ventilator graphics”
Understanding ventilator graphics is an integral part of adequately treating patients who are on mechanical ventilation. Ventilator graphics are an important part of understanding the pathophysiology in mechanical ventilated patients.
Speaking about “Strategies of mechanical ventilation in different diseases of the neonates”
The aim of any ventilation strategy is to support the neonates respiratory system during compromise while limiting long-term damage to the lungs.
Speaking about “Modes of conventional mechanical ventilation”
While modes have classically been divided up into pressure or volume controlled modes, a more modern approach describes ventilatory modes.
