Webinar Series – Respiratory Distress in Acute Care – Session 1: Dealing with the Obvious & Working out the Cause (Recorded January 2021)


Dealing with the Obvious Respiratory distress is very uncomfortable and potentially life-threatening. Prompt recognition and targeted therapy are key to a successful outcome. While it’s obvious that patients are compromised, identifying and treating the exact cause(s) can make the difference between life and death. This session will cover clinically relevant aspects of pulmonary physiology, respiratory distress recognition/triage, and blood gas analysis.
