Neurally Adjusted Ventilator Assist (NAVA) is a mode of mechanical ventilation that has been widely accepted in European adult and pediatric critical care medicine but has lacked the same clinical use in the United States. This lack of exposure has left clinicians with misconceptions and poor understandings of the advantages of this technology. Since Nava lacks wide use, this course will make meaningful learning experiences for students who complete the course.
- 1. You will learn about clinical conditions that NAVA can help manage.
- 2. You will find new ways to adjust the mode to make better clinical outcomes.
- 3. You will create arguments for or against the use of NAVA and support it with data.
- 4. You will learn troubleshooting and placement methods.
- 5. You will construct ideas on how to further explore NAVA.
