Applying Alveolar Recruitment Maneuvers in the Operating Room: Physiological Concepts and Practical Recommendations
- Dr. Christopher C. Young, M.D., FCCM
Join Dr. Young for a review of Alveolar Recruitment Maneuvers (ARMs) used in lung protective ventilation (LPV) for anesthesia delivery. He will discuss the physiological concepts of atelectasis formation, and its reversal, and examine the use of ARMS to reduce driving pressure. Recommendations from an expert panel on LPV and anesthesiology will be reviewed as well.
