Critical care specialist Roger Seheult, MD illustrates a concise review of the essential skills of mechanical ventilation. We've made this video series free at www.medcram.com/courses/COVID19-ventilator-mechanical-ventilation
As communities across the world are facing or preparing for increasing numbers of patients in respiratory distress from COVID-19, MedCram has packaged this video series for clinicians and hospitals on the frontlines.
We understand that medical professionals (and students) that don't have significant experience with mechanical ventilation may be called upon to help ventilator management teams in critical care settings. And clinicians with extensive ventilator experience may want a refresher or a tool to aid in teaching mechanical ventilation strategies to other clinicians.
This video series is a collection of previously recorded MedCram videos on mechanical ventilation with the addition of some COVID-19 specific videos.
This course will remain free, please share it with anyone you think may be interested. We hope you find it helpful, and we welcome feedback.
We appreciate you - medical professionals, students, and volunteers around the world. We are in this fight together.

      I've seen some articles, which seem to suggests that covid19 patients going to ventilation still have high mortality rates. It's very discouraging.

      I am contacting professional translators to help me translate this into other languages for Doctors that are needing this kind of course, I already talked to a surgeon that told me this would be really useful for some doctors in Argentina. For translation, I would need to download the course videos if you would not mind because I can't see where to set the subtitles

      MedCram - Medical Lectures Explained CLEARLY Attempting to sign up for any ICU RN shift to help out during this crisis (HUGE demand/critical shortage). The per diem recruiters and hospital Human Resources say the hiring rules are you must be a recent ICU RN in the last 2 years. They did not consider my current CRNA experience relevant nor my years of ICU experience. Thoughts?

      Very good episode for people of medical Background. However general public won't understand much. Personally I think, if the program is too professional, you won't attract great numbers of subscribers.. I very much like your channel, I am just trying to help. Perhaps some professional and some practical would be better to keep everyone interested. It would be very beneficial for the public to gain a little common senses in medicine.

    Doctor, can you show an actual ventilator, possibly several examples of it and how it operates? I have sleep apnea and my main worry is that if I, or someone with a similar respiratory condition contract Coronavirus, it may be a death sentence. I am also contemplating purchasing a cpap machine.

    So in my mind it’s possible for patients to be grouped together according to lung compliance and pressure to potentially share a ventilator in a severe shortage. I watched the video of the doctor in Detroit? Or Chicago- somewhere in the Midwest . How would you potentially improve on the multiple patient set up?

    Can you survive after being on a ventilator? People tend to stop breathing and die soon after a ventilator shuts off, though some do start breathing again on their own. If he is not taking in any fluids, he will usually die within several days of a feeding tube removal, though he may survive for as long as a week or two.Jul 21, 2019 Can you get brain damage from being on a ventilator? Researchers find why ICU ventilation can cause brain damage. Patients who have been mechanically ventilated in intensive care units have long been known to suffer some form of mental impairment as a result. ... They note that the incidence of delirium in patients who are mechanically ventilated is around 80%.Sep 26, 2013

    Personally I think we need to be increasing production of ECMO machines. To blow air into lungs that have aveoli full of fluid is a waste of time. There is still no oxygenation happening. We need to oxygenate the blood & return to person as if they were fetus' in the womb. Babies live for 9 months with lungs full of fluid...because the mother is operating as an ECMO machine. Their blood is oxygenated & returned to them all while they do not use their lungs. The covid sufferer has lungs full of fluid...so you can blow air in all day until the cows come home but the oxygenation is not happening! The air is not coming in contact with the blood at the aveoli level. Every time I hear them on TV talking about needing ventilators I want to shout at the screen that what they need are ECMO machines

    How is the patients panic response controlled? Are they conscious, twilight or our cold? I am speaking as a 60 year old lifelong asthmatic with anxiety and panic disorder and I am sure you deal with people like myself when the need to intubate arises, One of the most alarming aspects I have read is diaphragmatic paralyzation I could not imagine not being in control of my own breath without the panic running rampant although the physical o2|co2 exchanges would be met and proven by oximetry or blood gas if the fight or flight response kicks in doesn’t the heart rate elevate and respiration increase even to the point of hyperventilation? Or is one being pumped full of benzo’s and beta blockers to let the body fight it out with the cortisol and adrenaline? Thanks for all your work both at your hospital and here in PAsofts land we are all Lucky to have you. Responses from anyone reading with experienced medical insight would be most welcome, thanks

I realize we don't have many of these machines & I wouldn't want to play God here....but personally I think any Doctor who contracts this should get a shot at this. I can't get the picture out of my mind of the Italian Doctor on the vent. I'm still praying for him.

    I believe a ventilator destroyed my lungs. Is it possible? I had a tumor in my abdomen surgically removed the moment I woke up I hard serious trouble breathing. I was on oxygen the first 4 days and still have trouble breathing especially when I lay down. My pulmonary function test was terrible too. No answers.

    Also, the Tidal Volume (Tv) only helps to remove CO2 from the lungs, you oxygenate the pt by increasing FiO2, increasing PEEP, or increasing MAP. You oxygenate pt by increasing MAP as a last resort, although oxygenation and prevention of respiratory distress (which will lead to respiratory failure) are the primary goal, try to not use 100% O2 unless necessary to prevent passive atelectasis, PEEP is good for keeping the lung open to allow oxygenation. I am rusty on knowledge of MV myself, great video, so many more variables not mentioned.

    Medcram, please answer: Kidneys clean the blood. When people have kidney disease or failure, they go on dialysis. Lungs oxygenate the blood. When people have ARDS, doctors keep trying to force oxygen into lungs that have nearly stopped working. Why is there no dialysis equivalent - some machine that can oxygenate the blood outside the body? I assume I’m missing something obvious. What is it? Thanks!

      You're referring to an ECMO Machine. ECMO stands for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. The ECMO machine is similar to the heart-lung by-pass machine used in open-heart surgery. It pumps and oxygenates a patient's blood outside the body, allowing the heart and lungs to rest. ECMO for heart and lung failure

I am 65, and can still hold my breath for 4 mins, so I suppose I have a compliant lung, and also take way less than 12 breaths a min. so might be a pain in the butt to get me going on this machine. cheers

    i am an engineer, when i see how this ETT is inserted into the patient, it give me great concern. When a patient is infected, ALL of his air passages is infected. so the act of inserting the ETT could means scrapping off the virus in massive quantities and when the ventilator turns on, PROJECTILE PUMP the ENTIRE lung full of virus particles, thus accelerating the death of the patient. Also to pump the balloon, you expect someone to blow up the seal, in an ICU full of virus, OPEN mouth.. OMG which idiot invented this process.... they should just shoot the designer... also, in theory there should be liquid removal in front of the balloon[lung side], why? The surface of the air passages have hair that point upwards/outwards. assisting removal of unwanted matter with a cough. When you have the balloon, you prevent the lung from removing the expelling the virus and matter. when the patient is inverted, matter builds up in-front of the balloon[lung side] and when the ventilator pumps, Venturi effect takes over and you pump the lungs full of virus again...so you need to continuously remove all matter in-front of the balloon. Removing material behind the material does absolutely nothing.
