⏳😅 Practice Exam-Pleural Diseases
Respiratory Therapists provide an important role in diagnosis and management of pleural disease. This exam will test your knowledge in:
- palpation and auscultation of the chest
- managing the ventilation of a patient with Pleural Disease (eg., what changes to anticipate in a patient’s ventilatory function when a pneumothorax develops)
assist in performing a thoracentesis or placing a chest
monitoring a patient with Pleural Disease
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.
