Collapse 2019 Pulmonary Rehabilitation: Where we’ve succeeded and where we’ve failed

Pulmonary rehabilitation is of unquestioned benefit to COPD patients. The scientific basis of this therapy is firmly established. Yet it is available to a very small fraction of those who would benefit from it. In the cases of smoking cessation and inhaled bronchodilators, forces have been brought to bear to impact the vast majority of COPD patients. This lecture will examine the reasons for this discrepancy and suggest a way forward.

    Collapse Status Asthmaticus

    Respiratory therapists are a vital component of helping persons with asthma control their disease process through disease self-management education and asthma action plans. However, the CDC reported over 3,000 deaths in the US from asthma in 2016. All patients with asthma are at risk of developing status asthmaticus – an acute asthma episode with progressive severity poorly responsive to standard therapeutic interventions. This presentation will help the respiratory therapist identify status asthmaticus through patient assessment, describe pathophysiologic findings of the condition, and identify the best evidence-based practice for interventions.
