In this free one-hour video course, we’ll learn how to determine the underlying cause of illness in patients presenting with respiratory distress. The course will concentrate on both physical exam and historical findings characteristic of patients displaying respiratory signs from both cardiac and respiratory conditions, as well as some differentiating factors for each. Commonly used diagnostic tests for both cardiac and respiratory patients will also be reviewed, covering any differentiating factors between the two.
Through this video, learn to quickly isolate the cause of your patients’ respiratory issues to avoid treatment delays and missteps.
