Acute And Chronic Care During Mechanical Ventilation:


Long-Term Invasive Mechanical Ventilation in the Home: AARC Clinical Practice Guideline. Mechanical ventilation may be defined as a life support system designed to replace or support normal ventilatory lung function.(1) Ventilator dependence is caused by an imbalance between ventilatory capacity and demand.(2) "A ventilator-assisted individual (VAI) may require mechanical aid for breathing to augment or replace spontaneous ventilatory efforts to achieve medical stability" or to maintain life.(3) The patient eligible for invasive long term mechanical ventilation in the home (HIMV) requires a tracheostomy tube(4-6) for ventilatory support but no longer requires intensive medical and monitoring services.(7-9) This guideline refers to patients ventilated by positive pressure via a tracheostomy tube in the home."


Management of Airway Emergencies, AARC Clinical Practice Guideline:"Management of airway emergencies (MAE) for the purpose of this guideline encompasses all care necessary to deal with sudden and often life-threatening events affecting natural and artificial airways and involves the identification, assessment, and treatment of patients in danger of losing or not being able to maintain an adequate airway, including the newborn. This includes (1) identification of the causes of airway emergencies; (2) management of airway emergencies prior to tracheal intubation; (3) use of adjunctive equipment and special techniques for establishing, maintaining, and monitoring effective ventilation; (4) translaryngeal tracheal intubation, including nasal and oral tracheal intubation; (5) transtracheal catheter ventilation, (6) percutaneous dilational cricothyrotomy, and; (7) surgical cricothyrotomy."
