A Trip to China

Amanda Dexter, clinical educator at IngMar Medical, recently helped conduct training at the Covidien Center of Innovation (CCI) – a state-of-the-art training and education center in Shanghai, China. “Improving Respiratory Care in the ICU” was the focus of the two- day continuing education course for select pulmonary critical care doctors. Directed by Neil MacIntyre, the two-day course included lectures and workshops on ventilation and airway management.

Amanda helped conduct hands-on training using the ASL 5000 Breathing Simulator and the QuickLung Breather at the following workshops:

  • Non-invasive Ventilation
  • Novel Ventilator Modes Designed to Optimize Synchrony
  • “Fix the Vent” Scenarios
  • Ventilator Emergencies
  • Oxygen Emergencies/Severe Hypoxemia

Special thanks to Neil MacIntyre and John Davies, both of Duke University Medical Center, and Kien Kong of Covidien for their help in the workshops.
