Edit Comment Close By: jcasados (56 month(s) ago) PLEASE may I download this presentation? It is GREAT--and I'd like to share it with my EMS class in 2 days... I won't have internet access in that venue, so I'l like to download it to my computer. Saving..... Post Reply Close Saving..... Edit Comment Close By: hobmom (57 month(s) ago) This is a great presentation. I need to present this kind of information to some new nurses in our hospital. May I download this presentation.

How much fluid has patient had? Recent respiratory tract infection? Medications? When? How much? Allergies? Previous hospitalizations? Asthma: Physical Exam : Asthma: Physical Exam Patient position? Drowsy or stuporous? Signs/symptoms of dehydration? Chest movement? Quality of breath sounds? Asthma: Risk Assessment : Asthma: Risk Assessment Prior ICU admissions Prior intubation >3 emergency department visits in past year >2 hospital admissions in past year >1 bronchodilator canister used in past month Use of bronchodilators > every 4 hours Chronic use of steroids Progressive symptoms in spite of aggressive Rx Asthma : Asthma Silent Chest equals Danger Golden Rule : Golden Rule Pulmonary edema Allergic reactions Pneumonia Foreign body aspiration ALL THAT WHEEZES IS NOT ASTHMA Asthma: Management : Asthma: Management Airway Breathing Sitting position Humidified O2 by NRB mask Dry O2 dries mucus, worsens plugs Encourage coughing Consider intubation, assisted ventilation Asthma: Management : Asthma: Management Circulation IV TKO Assess for dehydration Titrate fluid administration to severity of dehydration Monitor ECG Asthma: Management : Asthma: Management Obtain medication history Overdose Arrhythmias Asthma: Management : Asthma: Management Nebulized Beta-2 agents Albuterol Terbutaline Metaproterenol Isoetharine Asthma: Management : Asthma: Management Nebulized anticholinergics Atropine Ipatropium Asthma: Management : POSSIBLE BENEFIT IN PATIENTS WITH VENTILATORY FAILURE Asthma: Management Subcutaneous beta agents Epinephrine 1:1000--0.1 to 0.3 mg SQ Terbutaline--0.25 mg SQ Asthma: Management : Asthma: Management Use EXTREME caution in giving two sympathomimetics to same patient Monitor ECG Asthma: Management : Asthma: Management Avoid Sedatives Depress respiratory drive Antihistamines Decrease LOC, dry secretions Aspirin High incidence of allergy Status Asthmaticus : Status Asthmaticus Asthma attack unresponsive to -2 adrenergic agents Status Asthmaticus : Status Asthmaticus Humidified oxygen Rehydration Continuous nebulized beta-2 agents Atrovent Corticosteroids Aminophylline (controversial) Magnesium sulfate (controversial) Status Asthmaticus : Status Asthmaticus Intubation Mechanical ventilation Large tidal volumes (18-24 ml/kg) Long expiratory times Intravenous Terbutaline Continuous infusion 3 to 6 mcg/kg/min Bronchiolitis : Bronchiolitis Bronchiolitis: Pathophysiology : Bronchiolitis: Pathophysiology Viral infection (RSV) Inflammatory bronchiolar edema Air trapping Bronchiolitis: Incidence : Bronchiolitis: Incidence Children < 2 years old 80% of patients < 1 year old Epidemics January through May Bronchiolitis: Signs/Symptoms : Bronchiolitis: Signs/Symptoms Infant < 1 year old Recent upper respiratory infection exposure Gradual onset of respiratory distress Expiratory wheezing Extreme tachypnea (60 - 100+/min) Cyanosis Asthma vs Bronchiolitis : Asthma vs Bronchiolitis Asthma Age - > 2 years Fever - usually normal Family Hx - positive Hx of allergies - positive Response to Epi - positive Bronchiolitis Age - < 2 years Fever - positive Family Hx - negative Hx of allergies - negative Response to Epi - negative Bronchiolitis: Management : Bronchiolitis: Management Humidified oxygen by NRB mask Monitor EKG IV tko Anticipate order for bronchodilators Anticipate need to intubate, assist ventilations Foreign Body Airway Obstruction : Foreign Body Airway Obstruction FBAO FBAO: High Risk Groups : FBAO: High Risk Groups > 90% of deaths: children < 5 years old 65% of deaths: infants FBAO: Signs/Symptoms : FBAO: Signs/Symptoms Suspect in any previously well, afebrile child with sudden onset of: Respiratory distress Choking Coughing Stridor Wheezing FBAO: Management : FBAO: Management Minimize intervention if child conscious, maintaining own airway 100% oxygen as tolerated No blind sweeps of oral cavity Wheezing Object in small airway Avoid trying to dislodge in field FBAO: Management : FBAO: Management Inadequate ventilation Infant: 5 back blows/5 chest thrusts Child: Abdominal thrusts Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia : Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia BPD BPD: Pathophysiology : BPD: Pathophysiology Complication of infant respiratory distress syndrome Seen in premature infants Results from prolonged exposure to high concentration O2 , mechanical ventilation BPD: Signs/Symptoms : BPD: Signs/Symptoms Require supplemental O2 to prevent cyanosis Chronic respiratory distress Retractions Rales Wheezing Possible cor pulmonale with peripheral edema BPD: Prognosis : BPD: Prognosis Medically fragile, decompensate quickly Prone to recurrent respiratory infections About 2/3 gradually recover BPD: Treatment : BPD: Treatment Supplemental O2 Assisted ventilations, as needed Diuretic therapy, as needed You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
