A big thank you to all who attended the 2022 Erlanger Pulmonary Health Seminar on May 6th, 2022! We had over 130 attendees on our virtual symposium and receive 6 CEU’s including Safety and Ethics. Thanks to our virtual format, we were able to host participants from Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
Our speakers covered topics on patient proning, to treat ARDS, Neurally Adjusted Ventilatory Assist (NAVA), the ethical dilemma of compassion fatigue, balancing brain, and lung protection in the NICU using transcutaneous CO2, how to avoid device related pressure injury, and COPD pharmacologic management.
We also want to thank our major sponsor Xarelto and our speaker sponsors Sentec, Getinge, Phillips Healthcare, University of Tennessee College of Medicine, Theravance Biopharma, and Equitable Counseling & Consulting. Without our sponsors, none of this would have been possible. We look forward to hosting our TSRC Chattanooga Chapter Virtual Seminar Friday, October 14th, 2022. Please keep an eye out for registration information here on the TSRC website coming soon!
