Managing respiratory emergencies

ECC | 78 mins

During this lecture we will look at the basic presentations of respiratory difficulties, how we can recognise the different classifications and why they occur. In addition, we’ll talk about pulse oximetry, arterial blood gas, oxygen supplementation and a targeted approach to the nursing management of these patients. We’ll also touch briefly upon the indications for mechanical ventilation. This lecture is aimed at nurses want to improve their confidence with managing the emergency patient in respiratory distress.
