SUBCOURSE MD0542 EDITION 200
MANAGEMENT OF PATIENTS WITH RESPIRATORY DYSFUNCTION
This subcourse presents a review of the respiratory system, devices
such as the oralpharyngeal airway and bag-valve-mask (BVM) systems
which are used to assist a patient's breathing efforts, procedures for
supplying the patient with additional oxygen through the use of the
face mask and nasal prongs, and procedures for removing secretions
interfering with breathing through the use of suction.
Successful completion of this subcourse does not mean that you are
ready to begin managing patients with respiratory dysfunctions. You
must still be trained under the supervision of a person who is
qualified to instruct you in these processes, supervise your practice,
and carefully evaluate your skills and abilities.
