Managing the Patient with Mechanical Ventilation

 

Annually, an average of 800,000 patient hospitalizations involve mechanical ventilation, with a national estimated cost of 27 billion dollars, or 12 percent of all hospital costs. Proper ventilator management techniques are imperative to provide safe, quality patient care and begins with developing the proper conceptual foundation. Collectively, it is the responsibility of the entire clinical team to ensure optimal outcomes for the mechanically ventilated patient.
