Fund Of Respiratory Care
Intro To Respiratory Care
This course will introduce the student to basic respiratory care modalities such as medical gas therapy, humidity therapy, aerosol therapy, bronchodilator administration via nebulizer and metered dose inhalers, and incentive spirometry. Basic care topics will be related to patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma. Concepts will be examined in the classroom while practical demonstration and clinical simulation will take place in the laboratory. Students must have BLS Heal,"thcare provider CPR certification by April 1st of the semester in which the course is taught.
