Respiratory Emergencies (EMET) 2016

EMET Pre-learning: Respiratory Emergencies

In this workshop we will explore the topic of acute respiratory distress and in particular consider severe (life-threatening) asthma, spontaneous pneumothorax, acute pulmonary oedema, Chronic Obstructive Airway Disease (CAL/COAD) and acute anaphylaxis. The workshop skills stations introduce noninvasive ventilation (CPAP) and aspiration of the spontaneous pneumothorax.
