Watch Module 7 of 7 in this educational series presented by Dr. Salvatore M. Maggiore, MD, PhD on the topic of lung protective ventilation in ARDS patients. Dr. Maggiore’s discussion includes the concepts of lung recruitment and how ventilatory treatments vary in the lung with ARDS depending on the morphology of lung damage. It is, therefore, important to understand whether there is a focal or diffuse distribution of lung damage that can affect expected lung recruitability. This webinar series is presented in Italian with English subtitles.
