Dealing with a patient in respiratory distress can be stressful, for both them and us! However, nurses play a vital role in the stabilisation of, and care of, respiratory patients. In this webinar, participants will be guided through the main points to consider while triaging a dyspnoeic patient, including localisation of the respiratory distress, and what oxygen supplementation options are currently available. Some of the more common respiratory diseases will be discussed and finally, participants will be taken through a couple of specific case studies.
