In this podcast episode Nurse Mo takes the complex topic of atelectasis and breaks it down to the “must know” information you need to take care of your patients, write care plans and do well on your nursing school exams.

  • The types of atelectasis…who knew there were so many?
  • Who is at risk for atelectasis (it’s a lot of folks!)
  • How to assess for postoperative atelectasis
