With the advent of mechanical ventilation we are able to treat respiratory compromised patients who previously we maybe could not treat.   While we have much success within the ICU with mechanically ventilating patients, it is not a benign form of treatment and extreme care must be taken to help facilitate a successful outcome.   Understanding the basics of the mechanics of ventilating and how to perform essential nursing care is discussed in this lecture with the aim to drastically reduce iatrogenic complications; which ultimately increases hospital time for the patient with the potential for a less favorable outcome.
**Nurse Congress Proceedings will be available on a USB in your congress bag
