The ABC of ABG.
Ph stat vs. Alpha stat ABG for Profound Hypothermia.
Welcome to our upcoming webinar, a pivotal educational event tailored for perfusionists seeking to expand their knowledge and expertise in arterial blood gas (ABG) analysis and management during profound hypothermia. This webinar is part of our commitment to provide continuous education and valuable resources for perfusionists, enabling them to earn CEUs while enhancing their professional skills.

Part 1: The ABC of ABG - Presented by J. Basha, CCP

The first segment of our webinar, "The ABC of ABG," will be led by the esteemed J. Basha, CCP, a renowned expert in the field. This session aims to demystify the complexities of ABG analysis and provide a solid foundation for understanding its critical role in patient management.

Understanding ABG: We begin with the basics, explaining the components of ABG, including pH, PaCO2, PaO2, HCO3-, and SaO2. This foundational knowledge is crucial for perfusionists to make informed decisions during cardiopulmonary bypass procedures.
Clinical Relevance: The session will delve into the clinical significance of each component of ABG, illustrating how they directly impact patient outcomes. Real-world case studies will be used to demonstrate the practical application of ABG analysis in various clinical scenarios.
Interpreting Results: A comprehensive guide on interpreting ABG results will be provided. This includes understanding acid-base balance, recognizing common disorders like acidosis and alkalosis, and applying this knowledge in clinical practice.
Part 2: Ph Stat vs. Alpha Stat ABG for Profound Hypothermia - Presented by B. Bolkacav, CCP

The second part of our webinar, led by B. Bolkacav, CCP, focuses on the critical decision-making process in managing ABG during profound hypothermia, a common scenario in cardiac surgeries.

Ph Stat and Alpha Stat - A Comparative Overview: This session will offer an in-depth look at both Ph Stat and Alpha Stat strategies, discussing their principles, methodologies, and clinical implications.
Impact on Perfusion Strategy during Hypothermia: The choice between Ph Stat and Alpha Stat management during profound hypothermia can significantly influence patient outcomes. We will explore how these strategies affect cerebral blood flow, oxygen delivery, and overall patient stability.
Case Studies and Best Practices: Drawing from a wealth of experience, Bolkacav will present case studies highlighting the application of both strategies. This practical approach will help perfusionists understand the nuances and best practices for managing ABG during profound hypothermia.
Interactive Q&A Sessions:

Both sessions will conclude with a live Q&A segment, allowing participants to engage directly with our experts. This interactive component is designed to clarify doubts, discuss complex scenarios, and share experiences among peers.
