Respiratory Emergencies (EMET) 2018

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 prelearning explores the use of noninvasive ventilation (CPAP/BIPAP) in the management of severe respiratory distress.
