NMT/RT Part 6: Pulmonary Anatomy & PhysiologyCE
Produced by: Echelon
This course is part of the Anatomy and Physiology Review for NMT/RT. This course on Pulmonary A&P and Arterial Blood Gases presents a brief overview of the structures and functions of the pulmonary system as well as its role in the regulation of gas exchange and the maintenance of acid/base balance. Content includes A&P of the respiratory system, mechanisms that control respiration, diffusion and gas exchange, oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve and the factors that affect the work of breathing. Techniques for obtaining and analyzing arterial blood gases are described, and differentiation of imbalance pathologies are discussed. Course structure encompasses clinical presentation and management of patients with various acid/base imbalances. This content is supported by 6 additional anatomy and physiology courses for NMT/RT: Cardiovascular, Endocrine, Gastrointestinal, Hematology, Neurology, and Renal. NOTE: This activity may be available in multiple formats or from different sponsors. ARRT regulations state that an individual may not repeat a self-learning activity for credit if it was reported in the same or any subsequent biennium.
