You did it! You have taken all of the knowledge you have learned throughout this course and applied it to mechanical ventilation—with the final piece being altering your ventilation settings based on ABGs.

Practice makes perfect! The more you see it and do it, the better you will become at looking at patients, choosing your initial ventilation strategies and altering them based on ABG assessments and interpretations. There is so much more to learn and do, but with this information, you can be confident you are safely initiating and altering ventilation for adult patients.

Two blue-gloved hands give a thumbs up.
Congratulations on completing the Basics of Mechanical Ventilation online resource!
