  • The free online course Nursing Studies - Clinical Skills: Caring for Respiratory Patients is designed to ensure that you have the knowledge and skills necessary to provide effective care and assistance to any patients who are experiencing respiratory difficulties that you may find in your care.

    The course begins by examining the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system. Here you will study the organs that combine to form the respiratory system. You will learn about the role that each organ plays in respiration and examine the most common factors that cause each organ to become diseased within the body. You will then study a range of physical examinations and procedures that medical personnel often use to determine whether or not a patient is in need of respiratory surgery. Finally, you will examine the duties that nurses must perform to ensure that their patients are both physically and mentally prepared for such procedures and are comfortable after they are carried out.

    The course then reviews various disorders of the respiratory system that you may encounter during your nursing career. You will examine disorders of the upper and lower respiratory systems. Here you will learn how to identify and help treat various disorders of the upper and lower respiratory systems such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, emphysema and bronchitis. You will also examine the implications that these disorders can have on the care you provide to your patient.
