Mrs. Parmar is a 88 y.o female who presented to hospital 4/7 ago with a persistent cough and general malaise x 1/52. She was admitted to the General Internal Medicine ward with the dx of CAP. Her O2 sats have begun to decline, so the physiotherapy and nursing students must recognize the issue, perform a respiratory assessment, increase oxygen therapy and effectively provide suction.
Efficiently and effectively suction the patient
Communicate effectively with staff present to obtain a subjective information and relay treatment plan
Complete an objective chest assessment
