Critical Care Respiratory Assessment & Management Course (CcRAM©)
This two-day course reviews advanced respiratory management of the critically ill patient. Through didactic and hands-on format the student will learn to setup and troubleshoot ventilators for various types of patients, in multiple settings, such as emergency room, critical care units and during ground and air transport. This program takes the mystery out of blood gas analysis by breaking down the ABG results and systematically evaluating each component. Once the ABG is interpreted reinforcing learning with the use of scenario-based interactive group exercises. This course will answer how to setup, adjust and evaluate mechanical ventilation effectiveness.

· Respiratory Anatomy and Physiology
· Diseases effecting ventilation and how to manage them
· Gas exchange/ABG interpretation and analyzes made easy
· Ventilated patient evaluation and monitoring
