Topic : Respiratory Emergencies

In this topic we will examine the patient presenting with difficulty breathing and consider immediate management priorities, differential diagnosis, role of investigations, treatment and disposition. The topic will be explored using a series of clinical case discussions and include examples of chest x-rays and blood gases, consider the increasing role of ultrasound in assessment and detail new approaches to providing respiratory support.

Course Learning Outcomes

1. Differentiate clinical findings distinguishing moderate, severe and life threatening respiratory distress

2. Prioritise the immediate management of the adult with serious or life threatening respiratory distress

3. Contrast the differential diagnosis and emergency management of acute respiratory distress

4. Discriminate the roles of CPAP/BiPAP and high flow humidified nasal prong therapy in the management of severe respiratory distress
