I just want more formal training focused on lungs and airways.
This was a big push for me in the critical care realm, after years of applying blindly at several different flight programs, I all but gave up and stumbled upon some awesome podcasts after I started doing ground CCP work.

I have obviously been using the wrong ventilator for a while now... is that the new Revel model?

Again, yet another reason I feel the "AMD" thread should be tied to the HEMS section, but I digress...

@RRTMedic I will be the first to admit I am severely lacking with pediatric vent management, specifically, infant vent management, but this is what first comes to mind...

Also, my understanding is the smaller pediatrics such as these are the rare population that may benefit from full paralysis and CMV so long as your ventilator management in this age group isn't lacking. By all means, feel free to elaborate, though.
If volume doesn't work, I'd go with pressure ventilation.
