This course focuses on refreshing nurses with fundamental physiology, of different systems, and how to perform specific focused assessments of patients with respiratory distress. All nurses need to stay sharp with their assessment skills. In this course Rob takes you to the cellular level to fully understand deterioration, normal and pathophysiology. you will really understand those lung sounds. You assessment of shortness of breath and respiratory parameters will be the envy of the ward.
