Professor Zach Murphy will be presenting on Respiratory Failure. We will be going into detail on the following main objectives:

1. Definition and Types of Respiratory Failure

- Acquire a solid understanding of what constitutes respiratory failure.

- Differentiate between Type I (Hypoxemic) and Type II (Hypercapnic) respiratory failure, along with the understanding of 'acute-on-chronic' respiratory failure.

2. Pathophysiology: Hypoxemic vs Hypercapnic

- Gain insight into the underlying physiological processes that lead to hypoxemia and hypercapnia.

- Learn about key concepts such as ventilation-perfusion mismatch, diffusion limitations, and impaired gas exchange.

3. Key Clinical Manifestations

- Recognize respiratory failure’s early signs and symptoms to facilitate prompt diagnosis and treatment.

- Discuss common findings on physical examination, including vital signs and lung auscultation.

4. Diagnostic Criteria and Tools

- Familiarize yourself with the diagnostic criteria based on the latest clinical guidelines.

- Understand the roles of arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis, chest radiography, and other diagnostic tools.

5. Evidence-Based Management Strategies

- Gain a thorough understanding of current, evidence-based management techniques, from supplemental oxygen therapy to advanced mechanical ventilation.

- Discuss the use of pharmacological interventions, including bronchodilators and corticosteroids.
