"The Use of Noninvasive Ventilation at the End of Life" Lecturer: Shawna Strickland PhD, RRT, RRT-NPS, RRT-ACCS, AE-C, FAARC. Noninvasive ventilation is a common modality provided in acute, long-term, and home care environments to provide respiratory support to patients with a variety of acute and chronic disease pathologies. Though NIV is used predominantly as a bridge to recovery in acute disease pathologies and as ongoing support in chronic disease pathologies, some clinicians advocate for the use of NIV for comfort measures at the end of life. This presentation will provide a basis for the analysis of ethical dilemmas and debate the ethical arguments for and against the use of NIV at the end of life. **This program is approved for one hour of CRCE credit per staff participant who successfully completes the test.

Current Topics #8: ITEM WILL NOT SHIP UNTIL SCHEDULED RELEASE OF PROGRAM - END OF OCTOBER 2017. "Evaluating the value of the Respiratory Therapist: Where is the evidence?" Lecturer: Marin H. Kollef MD . Are respiratory therapists critical thinkers with the ability to work as physician extenders and add value to the American health care system or does science suggest we're nothing more than task doers? Do respiratory therapist-driven protocols improve care and reduce costs? Can respiratory therapists properly assess patients and make therapeutic recommendations that adhere to evidence-based guidelines and rival outcomes achieved by physicians? This lecture will explore the answer to these and other questions, and highlight the most recently published literature on the topic. Find out once and for all whether published science suggests that RTs possess the skill-set to work successfully in expanded roles, as physician extenders and really do offer value to the American health care system. **This program is approved for one hour of CRCE credit per staff participant who successfully completes the test.
