Speakers from around the globe present their experiences and research on topics which this year included: how to ventilate severely hypoxic and hypercapnic patients; airway pressure release ventilation; troubleshooting patient ventilator asynchrony; proning, weaning, as well as giving delegates a chance to ask questions of the expert panel.
