When ventilation gets challenging in children

Sunday 10 October, 0845-1730 AEDT

This course will address challenging aspects of ventilatory support in paediatric patients. It will discuss practical considerations, approach to management when ventilation is difficult and discuss the considerations when using ventilatory support in children with life-limiting conditions, discussing the additional ethical challenges that can arise in this situation.
Sessions will be presented by individuals with significant expertise in this field, with speakers from both local and overseas centres. Challenging cases will be presented to facilitate discussion and to highlight situations where ventilation may be considered to improve stability and quality of life.
This course is intended for paediatricians, sleep medicine clinicians, sleep scientists and technicians, clinical nurses, fellows, junior doctors and students involved in the management of paediatric sleep patients that require ventilatory support.

Learning Objectives

1. Understand the population of children in whom ventilatory support is challenging and the underlying pathophysiology that leads to consideration of ventilatory support.
2. Understanding the role of paediatric sleep medicine in supporting children undergoing surgery, including spinal, craniofacial and ENT procedures.
3. Develop an awareness of some of the difficulties in the interpretation of sleep studies in children on ventilatory support and specific modes of ventilation that can be helpful.
4. Develop an understanding of the advantages and disadvantages of ventilatory support in the context of life-limiting conditions.
