This course is designed to prepare students to pass the simulation portion of the National Board for Respiratory Care Registry Examination. Students improve their critical thinking skills through case-based lectures and computer simulations that allow students to manage patient problems relevant to the clinical practice of respiratory care. Emphasis is placed on 1) review, collection, and interpretation of patient data; 2) selection, assembly, use, and assurance of proper function, operation and cleanliness of equipment; and 3) initiation, conduction, monitoring, and modification of prescribed therapeutic procedures.
