Workshop 1:  Disease tailored ventilation strategies
Chair: Peter Rimensberger (Switzerland)
This workshop will cover various neonatal lung diseases and conditions and discusses what the best ventilation strategy is. Is it recruitable? Is avoiding overdistension the aim? What is the best modality to use? How to use respiratory monitoring to better guide and adapt ventilation strategies?
With hands-on group rotations
Workshop Leaders: David Tingay (Australia), Martin Keszler (USA), Andreas Flemmer (Germany), Irwin Reiss (The Netherlands)
