Oxygen Therapy (for Nurses)
There are many conditions where a patient may require supplemented oxygen, for example, dyspnoea, shock, sepsis, SIRs and head trauma. This webinar will address the difference between hypoxaemia and hypoxia, as well as the methods of oxygen delivery available to each patients needs and the fraction of inspired oxygen each provides. Humidification of oxygen, oxygen toxicity and other complications of oxygen therapy will be reviewed. Finally there will be a comprehensive look at how to monitor successful oxygen therapy and the techniques/ equations used to assess the oxygenation and ventilation of the patient.
