What's in the Course?
This topic is all about saving the severely distressed respiratory patient – from the time of initial presentation, to the time the patient is stabilised. Topics will cover everything from oxygen therapy, thoracocentesis and ventilation therapy, to appropriate use of pharmacology to manage the severely distressed dyspnoeic patient. Full of video content from real cases, useful algorithms, and helpful information, we’ll try to take the stress out of dealing with these potentially fatally unwell patients in the emergency situation.
This topic is all about lung and airway diseases, from brachycephalics to laryngeal paralysis; allergic bronchial diseases to pneumonia and lots in-between. We will discuss patient stabilisation, acute therapy, and the transition from acute care to chronic management. We will also look at appropriate the management of patients with such diverse conditions as pulmonary contusions, pneumonia, congestive heart failure, near drowning, electrocution and sepsis-induced ARDS!
This final topic in the course will cover the essentials of respiratory critical care, and monitoring of the patient with serious lung disease, including oxygen therapy, and respiratory pharmacology; acute ventilation therapy and monitoring. Included in this week will be a detailed description of ventilation therapy – including indications, how to ventilate your patients effectively and safely, minimising barotrauma, oxygen toxicity and nosocomial infections, and the delicate process of weaning from ventilation assistance!
