BRONCHIAL THERMOPLASTY FOR ASTHMA Presented By Michael Simoff, Director, interventional Pulmonology and Bronchoscopy, Henry Ford Medical Center This is a new procedure being performed on patients that meet the criteria for the diagnosis of severe- persistent asthma. During a bronchoscopy, a catheter is inserted into the bronchial airway that when expanded, makes contact with the airway wall. Heated energy is applied to that area to reduce the smooth muscle tissue constriction which in turn allows for easier breathing.
Airway Pressure Release Ventilation APRV AS AN OPEN LUNG TOOL Presented By Rick Zahodnick, PhD, RRT-NPS, RPFT, AE-C This session described the use of airway pressure release ventilation as a ventilatory adjunct in patients suffering from refractory hypoxemia.
