A Breath of Fresh Air - Clinical Applications of Oxygenation and Ventilation in the Emergency Room
Views: 754 - Comments: 0Respiratory failure is diagnosed when there is a deficit in arterial oxygen (hypoxemia) or the accumulation of carbon dioxide (hypercapnia) due to abnormalities within the respiratory system or neurological control of ventilation. It is important to identify a decline in ventilation and oxygenation early in the course of critical illness to prevent the ensuing cascade of detrimental cellular events. In this lecture presented by Christin Reminga, DVM, DACVECC, we will discuss practical ways to identify the inciting causes and types of respiratory failure, the means behind timely diagnostic, therapeutic, and monitoring measures and the understanding for specialty transfer when ongoing efforts are required.
This talk is specifically RACE-approved for 1 DVM or Technician CE credit.
