Air exchange with the environment is the A & B of the ABC’s of resuscitation, and the Respiratory module guides you through all of the emergent processes that disrupt this system. Seconds can count when managing respiratory failure and the emergency physician and APP needs to have knowledge of these disorders like no other, as there is often no time to look up what to do and there can be delays with a call for help. Learn the evidence based approach to managing a host of respiratory disorders by reviewing actual encounters of patients in varying degrees of respiratory distress. Learn to interpret chest imaging, ABG’s, and other ancillary studies as you work-up patients with cough, shortness of breath, hypoxia, and pleuritic chest pain.
