Summarises how to assess and monitor a patient with respiratory dysfunction
Acute respiratory dysfunction is a major cause of critical care unit admission. Compromise of the respiratory system – whether a primary or a secondary condition – can lead to a life-threatening situation for a patient.
The Respiratory Assessment and Monitoring CPD module gives a comprehensive overview of how to assess and monitor patients with respiratory dysfunction. This assessment and monitoring provides relevant data, essential for clinical decision-making.
Nursepoint’s Respiratory Assessment and Monitoring CPD module features practice questions and reflective practice questions to provide a framework for your continued professional development. This not only helps you define a learning plan, but also satisfies the CPD requirements set by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia.
Completing this online module accumulates one hour of CPD for nurses.
