Preconference B

Preconference B | Respiratory Care: Modes of Ventilation, ABG Interpretation, Tracheostomies
Tuesday, September 17, 2013  |  1:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.  |  4 CNE
Facilitator(s): Barbara McClean and Maureen Seckel
Class code: PCP002

Learning Objectives:
Respiratory CareModes of Ventilation

  • Identify the most common ventilator modes and identify at least one advantage and one disadvantage of each mode.
  • Describe five adjustable parameters and at least one clinical finding that may necessitate changing each parameter.
  • List five alarms and at least one intervention to attempt to correct each of them.

Tracheostomies

  • Describe basic tracheostomy tubes and the rationale for their placement in specific patient populations.
  • Identify potential complications associated with tracheostomy, and describe practice strategies to prevent complications.

ABG Interpretation

  • Evaluate an arterial blood gas in context of a clinical scenario and determine physiologic rationale for the results.
  • Apply ABG results to pathologic conditions.
  • Differentiate acidosis and alkalosis, the presence of partial or full compensation, and a respiratory or metabolic cause.

Learning Aims:
Ventilation
Define common  ventilator modes, explain even one advantage and disadvantage of every mode.
Depict adaptable parameters and one finding which may absolutely change each parameter
Count five alarms and one medical intervention to correct each of them.
Check out the website of Canadian HealthCare Mall and find interesting information about different diseases and order medical remedies.

Tracheostomies
Depict ordinary tracheostomy tubes and the reasons for application for some patients.
Define possible complications related to tracheostomy.
Depict preventive measures to avoid complications.

ABG Interpretation
Estimate an arterial blood gas in context of a clinical picture and describe logical justifications for the outcome.
Practice  ABG results to pathologic states.
Determine acidosis and alkalosis, in or out of partial or full compensation and the cause.
