In this podcast, we talk about the very important skill of understanding when your patient is in respiratory distress and how to know if intubation is needed.
- Normal respiratory parameters and assessment findings
- Abnormal findings and what to do about them
- The nurse’s role in the intubation process
- Taking care of your patient post intubation
You can also read about this process here.
And something we don’t cover in the podcast, but that’s super helpful to understand is the P/F ratio, which you can check out here!
Are you a visual learner? This video is a great overview of the mechanics of intubation….it’s a British video and apparently in Britain the “sniffing position” is called the “sniffing the morning air position.” How adorable is that?
