RES 245 - Advanced Respiratory Skills II

Lecture Hours: 1 Lab Hours: 3 Clinical Hours: 0 Credits: 2

Description: This course includes an in-depth study of pulmonary function and other considerations for pulmonary patients.

Course Topics:
  • Avoiding lung injury with mechanical ventilation
  • Maximizing oxygen delivery and carbon dioxide removal with mechanical ventilation
  • Management differences of obstructive vs restrictive lung injuries with mechanical ventilation
  • Mechanical ventilation’s effects on the other organ systems of the body
  • Troubleshooting alarm situations
  • Non-Traditional mechanical ventilation approaches

Textbook information can be found on the Book Inn website
Required Materials:
  • Four function basic calculator

Grading System:
The standard mathematical procedure of rounding will be applied to arrive at a whole number percentage in the final grade calculation.

An overall grade of C or higher is required for transferability.

A = 90 - 100
B = 80 - 89
C = 70 - 79
D = 60 - 69
F =   0 - 59

Student Learning Outcomes:
  1. Evaluate mechanical ventilation to avoid lung injury.
  2. Modify ventilator management to maximize oxygen delivery and carbon dioxide removal.
  3. Differentiate between obstructive and restrictive lung disease and how each is managed using mechanical ventilation.
  4. Predict the effects of mechanical ventilation on the organ systems of the body.
  5. Solve alarm situations involving mechanical ventilators.
  6. Justify and integrate the use of non-traditional mechanical ventilation approaches.
  7. Choose the appropriate method to assess the respiratory function of a patient on mechanical ventilation.
