Taking care of the lungs of your patient during anesthesia: Equipment, techniques and practical tips.

The wet lab is aimed to teach the basic techniques of mechanical ventilation in intubated animals, including how to set-up a ventilator, how to start volume and pressure mechanical/controlled ventilationand other modalities, the use of positive end-expiratory pressure and recruitment strategies. The principles of static and dynamic respiratory mechanics monitoring will be addressed simulating the different conditions in cadavers and isolated lungs. Monitoring and interpretation of airway pressures, compliance and dynamic spirometry loops will be discussed. Innovative techniques and practical tips will be provided regarding the alveolar recruitment and its monitoring from basic to more advanced clinical settings. All the attendees will be able to simulate on cadavers and isolated lungs the different techniques guided by the teachers. Several clinical conditions/complications will be simulated, including leak of the circuit, airway obstruction, variation of the compliance, etc. Attendees will be guided to recognize these conditions by the interpretation of the spirometry parameters similarly to the clinical setting. The recruitment strategies will be explained and applied on the cadavers going from the application and setting of PEEP to the recruiting maneuvers making them simple and applicable in any clinical setting. After the workshop the attendees should be familiar with the main respiratory modalities during anesthesia and to set them based on the requirements of the patients. Attendees would be able to interpret the main parameters of the spirometry monitoring (pressure/volume loops, airway pressure/time product, driving pressure, etc.), in order to detect the main alterations of the respiratory system that may occur during anesthesia or as a consequence of the disease of the animal. Additionally, the audience will learn about the main strategies of lung recruitment and its monitoring during anesthesiacused on basic surgery and it is intended for veterinary surgeons with minimal experience in this field.
