Respiratory Care Week 2017

Each year, Respiratory Care Week is celebrated in the last full week of October to recognize and honor all of the hardworking respiratory therapists worldwide. The American Association for Respiratory Care offers some great tools on their site to help institutions celebrate this week. Download the National Respiratory Week Planning Guide for events and activities you can organize to celebrate the respiratory therapists in your institution. Be sure to participate in the global conversation on social media with the hashtag #RCweek17. 

In honor of Respiratory Care Week, OPENPediatrics is pleased to feature one of our interactive simulators, The Virtual VentilatorThe virtual ventilator is an immersive online mechanical ventilation training tool. The ventilator incorporates real-time changes in vital signs, ventilatory parameters, patient appearance, arterial blood gases, chest X-rays and more. Users are required to interpret physiologic, imaging and ventilator data, formulate diagnoses and make changes to best treat their patients.
