RSPT 55EMEDIATED STUDIES IN RESPIRATORY THERAPY V.5 Unit(s)

Prerequisites: Prerequisite: RSPT 55D.
Grade Type: Letter Grade Only
Not Repeatable.
FHGE: Non-GE Transferable: CSU
2 hours laboratory. (24 hours total per quarter)

Student Learning Outcomes -
  • Identifies and chooses the correct laboratory tests that lead to proper treatment in the clinical simulation scenarios.
  • Student will be able to recognize hemodynamic waveforms.
Description -
Fifth of seven instruction and evaluation in topics paralleling content taught in courses in the respiratory therapy program. Topics include neonatal and pediatric diseases, ECG and Hemodynamic monitoring. Develop and strengthen concepts taught in the concurrent lecture and laboratory sessions of the respiratory therapy program. Media materials will provide an alternative learning resource for non-traditional students. Intended for students in the respiratory therapy program.

Course Objectives -
The student will be able to:
  1. Extreme prematurity
  2. Neonatal transport
  3. Patent ductus arteriosus
  4. Persistent pulmonary hypertension
  5. Pulmonary interstitial emphysema
  6. Electrocardiography part I, II and III
  7. Hemodynamic monitoring part I, II and III
  8. HFOV 3100B
Special Facilities and/or Equipment -
Computers, network printer, projectors.
