Event Details

Toronto Ventilation Study Group – The MOAI Sessions – Mechanisms Of Associated Injury

We propose: i) a regular forum to discuss research projects that are at an early stage: i.e. a good idea, a hypothesis, or data at a pilot stage; ii) experts in the field and their trainees to attend regularly (there are lots in the city); iii) to help move ideas about the mechanisms and physiology of mechanical ventilation toward clinical testing; iv) to benefit from the high level of expertise that exists on these topics in Toronto from basic science to applied physiological research.
Everyone is welcome – each hospital and research institute has clinicians and scientists with special interest or expertise in mechanical ventilation or lung physiology.

Session I:    4:00 – 4:45 pm
Topic: Lung protective ventilation. A holistic strategy based upon physiology and clinical science
Speaker: Björn Jonson, MD, PhD
Professor Emeritus, Department of Clinical Physiology, Lund University, Sweden

Session II:    4:45 – 5:30 pm
Topic: The incidence and significance of large tidal volumes after transition to pressure support ventilation in ARDS patients: a study proposal
Speaker: Dr. Marcello Schmidt
Supervisor: Dr. Gordon Rubenfeld

This event will be held on December 8, 2016 in 2nd Floor, Bond Wing, Room 2-010 at St. Michael’s Hospital from 4:00-5:30 pm.
