The Society of Critical Care Medicine's Critical Care Congress features internationally renowned faculty and content sessions highlighting the most up-to-date, evidence-based developments in critical care medicine. This is a presentation from the 2020 Critical Care Congress held February 16-19, 2020, in Orlando, Florida, USA.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss how intrinsic positive end-expiratory pressure (auto-PEEP) affects ventilator triggering, peak airway pressure and effective driving pressure
  • Explain how increasing applied PEEP decreases the work of breathing and improves synchrony
  • Review accepted treatment approaches, including the role of heliox, pressure versus volume ventilation, and pitfalls
  • Describe the pharmacologic treatment of acute asthma using inhaled and systemic bronchodilators, steroids, magnesium, and leukotriene inhibitors
