Title : One Lung Ventilation in Children - Techniques and management

Abstract:

Thoracic surgery is being performed in increasing spectrum of pediatric patients. Over the years, indications for video assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has increased exponentially and one lung ventilation (OLV) is frequently performed to facilitate surgical exposure or to isolate diseased lung from healthy lung to prevent soiling. OLV refers to mechanical separation of two lungs to accomplish ventilation of only one lung while the surgical lung is allowed to passively deflate. My goal in the presentation would be talk about: • Physiology of OLV in children • Various devices available for OLV in infants and children • Pros and cons of various techniques • Various strategies to optimize oxygenation Audience Take Away: • The audience will learn various devices that are available to accomplish OLV in infants and children • Pros and cons of these devices • Various measures that can be adopted to minimize the likelihood of hypoxia during OLV in children
