    00:03 Respiratory failure is a syndrome where the respiratory system fails to perform adequate oxygenation and/or the removal of carbon dioxide.

    00:13 Type 1 respiratory failure is hypoxemic respiratory failure, type 2 is hypercapnic or elevated CO2 level.

    00:22 Respiratory failure can be caused by any condition that affects the lungs directly or the muscles, nerves, bones or tissues that support breathing can also cause respiratory failure.

    00:32 The end outcome for respiratory failure depends.

    00:36 It depends on the severity of its underlying cause, how quickly treatment begins and the patient's overall health.
