The patient undergoing an acute respiratory crisis is often dyspneic, tachypneic, anxious, and wide-awake. To meet the challenges involved in caring for such patients, clinicians must be well versed in pathophysiology, possess critical thinking skills, and demonstrate technical expertise.
This half-day seminar provides an opportunity for nurses caring for pulmonary patients to strengthen their knowledge base relative to the most commonly encountered and clinically significant pulmonary diseases. The intent is to promote increased competence and effectiveness in caring for these vulnerable and challenging patients.
