Nursing case study respiratory system
Injuries to the respiratory system, or surrounding tissues can have implications for respiration, gas exchange and ventilation. Learn about the implication of these injuries, their immediate management and specific interventions including chest drainage. When are respiratory symptoms not directly caused by respiratory disease?
Some neurological or cardiac conditions can have respiratory effects, as can many medicines. This final interactive session will tie the last two days together with assessment tools and techniques.

Need for Program Respiratory symptoms are common and nearly a third of Australians live with a chronic respiratory condition. Purpose of Program The purpose of this seminar is to enable you to apply evidence-based knowledge and skills to your nursing practice with people with respiratory disease.
Your Learning Outcomes Conduct a comprehensive respiratory assessment based on knowledge of anatomy and physiology Differentiate between a range of common acute and chronic respiratory signs and symptoms Translate evidence-based management principles to nursing interventions of common respiratory illness Alleviate respiratory distress by direct interventions and providing education to enable self management.

Schedule Day One am - Registration and Refreshments am Introduction to Respiratory Nursing Skills With the prevalence of respiratory disease in our community, it is likely that no matter where you work, some of your patients will have respiratory disease as either their primary or secondary diagnosis. We will review the objectives of this seminar and discuss the prevalence of respiratory disease in Australia: Respiratory disease is a significant cause of ill health and hospitalisation in Australia It is estimated that more than 7 million Australians over the age of 35 may be at serious risk of lung disease More women in Australia die from lung cancer than breast cancer am Respiratory Anatomy and Physiology Overview An overview of the anatomy and physiology of the upper and lower airways, relating this to the complex processes underpinning respiration, gas exchange, and ventilation.
Review understanding of respiratory terms: respiration internal and external gas exchange normal ventilation in the healthy person negative pressure ventilation vs positive pressure ventilation am - Morning Tea and Coffee am Oxygen - the Good and the Bad, the Pink and the Blue This session considers what all nurses need to know about oxygen in relation to clinical care, including the rationale for selection of oxygen therapy in relation to individual patient needs and pathophysiology.
Includes: Acute respiratory failure and the role of carbon dioxide and oxygen Oximetry and the physiology of haemaglobin, monitoring oxygen saturations Exploring the concepts of hypoxaemia, hypoxia and respiratory failure Oxygen delivery systems — choosing the correct therapy pm - Lunch Break and Networking pm Arterial Blood Gases - Basic Interpretation ABG analysis is complex and daunting for many nurses, however, through an understanding of the science we can demystify it.
Here we examine the pathophysiology of common causes of acute respiratory failure, including: Acute pulmonary oedema Pulmonary embolism Airway obstruction and foreign bodies Assessment of respiratory compromise Pathophysiology of cough, stridor, dyspnoea, wheeze and sputum production What pain is that? Immediate care of the breathless patient pm - Close of Day One of Seminar. Types, Triggers and Treatment Asthma is a common condition across the lifespan and may be exacerbated during illness.
Respiratory case study for nurse practitioner. Plan of care
All nurses will care for people with asthma either as their primary or secondary diagnosis, so an in-depth understanding is essential: Acute asthma and management Chronic asthma and prevention Childhood asthma Assessment of asthma Exacerbations of asthma Medicines used in asthma and other reactive respiratory diseases Asthma plans and discharge instructions Interactive case studies am - Morning Tea am Chest Infections and Pneumonia Respiratory tract infections are common and are often the reason for admission.
This session will cover: Assessment and management of the patient with infective lung disease Pneumonia and related pathophysiology Types of infective lung conditions, such as influenza Influenza Management including antibiotic choices ARDS — introduction of concepts Considerations in care of the elderly or immunocompromised Paediatric respiratory conditions — bronchiolitis and croup Transmission precautions Interactive case study pm Chronic Lung Disease Respiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease require lifelong, specialist management.
Vitals T max Labs Na: Creatinine: 1. Radiology Radiology Chest X-ray showed focal consolidation in the right lower lobe, suggestive of pneumonia. The pneumococcal urinary antigen test is a useful method for detecting pnuemococcus, especially in patients who are unable to produce a reliable repiratory sample or those who are already on antbiotics.

Mr Patel has a pyrexia of His respiratory rate is slightly raised at 18 per minute and he has a tachycardia of beats per minute. Blood pressure is normal. Pulmonary TB. See Appendix 4 in Holland et al for possible questions to consider during the assessment stage of care planning. Based on your assessment of Mr Patel, the following problems should form the basis of your care plan:.
