This course will provide you with a framework which enables you to think critically about patients who present to the Emergency Department with shortness of breath. You will learn which critical actions and initial diagnostic evaluations should be carried out, before moving on to more in-depth knowledge of specific causes of respiratory distress in the ER.
You will also get to know more about the symptoms and management of acute pulmonary edema and decompensated heart failure. More common respiratory emergencies which present to the ER, such as pulmonary embolism and asthma or COPD are also part of this online course.
