Respiratory diseases are very frequent and have a high socio-economic impact. In fact, among the first ten causes of hospitalization in the field of internships include respiratory failure, lung neoplasms, COPD and bronchial asthma. In any hospital ward, the nurse will then be called to manage oxygen therapy, inhalation therapy, non-invasive mechanical ventilation and the most frequent diagnostic modalities, such as bronchoscopy or the placement of a pleural drainage.
The aim of the Pneumology lessons is therefore to be able to recognize the signs and symptoms of the main respiratory diseases and the subsequent management. In particular, the nurse must be able to manage respiratory failure, oxygen therapy, asthmatic crisis and COPD exacerbation.
