OBJECTIVES

  1. Evaluate key components of a quick physical assessment designed to pinpoint causes of an acute respiratory emergency.
  2. Discuss immediate interventions for patients experiencing an acute respiratory emergency, including techniques for emergent airway management.
  3. Analyze evidenced-based interventions for the patient with a pulmonary embolism.
  4. Explain the role of the newest oral anticoagulation agents in the treatment of pulmonary embolism.
  5. Differentiate between cardiac and non-cardiac pulmonary edema in terms of clinical presentation and treatment.
  6. Identify complications of ARDS, including lung trauma, pneumonia, and multisystem organ failure.
  7. Manage the emergent treatment of a tension pneumothorax using the current practice standards.
  8. Differentiate between heart failure and COPD exacerbations to be able to implement optimal treatment strategies.
  9. Analyze how ARDS pathophysiology presents related to atelectasis, compliance, oxygenation, ventilation, perfusion, and other assessment data throughout the clinical course of the disease state.
  10. Demonstrate individual interventions and overall strategies to minimize the impact of ARDS pathophysiology and promote a return to homeostasis.
  11. List common etiologies of ARDS pathology.
  12. Recognize differing ventilator modes for patients with ARDS to get the best patient outcomes.
