Reseach Happy Hour

Dear Colleagues,

Please join us for our next virtual Research Happy Hour at the DACCPM!

We are delighted to have Dr. Eduardo Costa, M.D., speak and discuss cutting-edge research on key factors of ventilator-induced lung injury. The meeting format will be 50% time for the presentation and 50% for discussion. Questions can be asked during the presentation and will be moderated. This format has been very successful, engaging, and inspiring for the participants. It allows us to explore details and gain insights beyond traditional talks. Some of you may know this format as the style of the legendary flow-volume-underworld meetings.

How can we avoid ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI) during mechanical ventilation?
High tidal volumes and high driving pressures are two accepted causes of harm to the lungs. The frequency at which these harmful ventilatory settings are applied likely matters as well and mechanical power was proposed as a variable that lumps together these potential causes of VILI. The idea of the meeting is to discuss what components are in fact associated with harm.
