⏳😅 Practice Exam-Neonatal & Pediatric Respiratory Disorders
Respiratory Therapists provide a key role in the speciality areas of neonatal and pedidatric care (special certification in Neonatal and Pediatric Care is becoming more common at the state/provincial/national level). There are significant differences in the diseases, pathophysiologies, and function of respiratory assessment, management, support, and even equipment between adult and pediatric patients. Respiratory Therapists with advanced experience and skill in neonatal and pediatric care are invaluable to good team outcomes and in helping patients and parents understand the respiratory goals of each individual patient.
This Practice Exam will test your knowledge and skill in:
incidence and definitive diagnosis of RDS
cause and treatment for TTN (type II RDS), MAS, BPD, PPHN, Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, SIDS, Bronchiolitis, Croup, Epiglotitis, CF
monitoring neonatal and pediatric patients
In the current environment of value-based care in which all health care providers must function at the “top of their license,” RTs are increasingly at the frontline of diagnosis and may be the first health care provider that
patients see in evaluation for dyspnea.
