Access e-learning resources about mechanical ventilation and ventilators. Our e-learning modules are designed for current and future users of Hamilton Medical ventilators, and teach the most commonly used features and functions. Every user is required to register in order to manage the learning modules and obtain the certificates.
Heliox, a mixture of helium and oxygen, may be indicated for patients in cases of acute and life-threatening upper airway obstruction.
In the presence of dynamic pulmonary hyperinflation, the average end-expiratory pressure inside the alveoli (i.e., the actual, total PEEP (PEEPtot)) is higher than the PEEP applied by the ventilator (PEEPe). The difference between PEEPtot and PEEPe corresponds with the intrinsic PEEP (PEEPi), and is also known as AutoPEEP (1).
As our understanding of VILI grows, there is a greater focus on mechanical power (MP) as a potential predictor of negative outcomes.
Why do Hamilton Medical ventilators monitor static compliance (Cstat) instead of dynamic compliance (Cdyn)?
Our Clinical Applications Team is happy to hear any suggestions you might have for additional training topics.
