In this episode we talk about the basics of ARDS – Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. It is the most severe form of acute lung injury and is something we see pretty regularly in the MICU. Learn about the different stages that occur as ARDS develops, what you’re going to assess and how the patient is going to be treated in this episode of the Straight A Nursing Podcast.
Also, if you’re listening to these in order…I apologize…the “diabetes” post was posted too early, so when you listen to that one and hear that I’ve gotten better equipment, note that it won’t be evident until we get to an episode on renal basics.
