RT test 3

wwall RT 2 test 3

Indications for IS are presence of atelectasis, predisposition for atelectasis ie: upper ab or thoracic surgery, or surgery to COPD pt, pt with restrictive lung defect ie: quad or diaphragm problem
Contraindications for IS unconscious, uncooperative or uncoordinated pt, inadequate VC less than 10 mL per Kg or IC less than 70 percent
Hazards and complications of IS are hyperventilation and resp alkalosis, pain, pulm barotraumas, exacerbation of bronchospasm, fatigue, ineffective unless performed as ordered, inappropriate as sole treatment for lung collapse or consolidation
The three types for Incentive spirometers are flow dependent (ball), volume displacement (bellows), photoelectric (combined flow and vol displac)
Voldyne spirometers flow dependent, 1 tube with float, slow deep breath, keep float in set range, range is 0 to 4000 mL
Triflow three tubes with floats, flow dependent, highest of the three x seconds held equals total volume
Volurex bellows volume displacement, range is to 4000 mL
Spirocare photoelectric, must have electric source and gives read out, combination volume displacement and flow dependent
SMI is sustained maximal inspiration aka incentive spirometry, mimics natural sigh, visual feedback to patient, increases pulm press and insp volume
The three phases of hyperinflation therapy are planning, implementation and follow-up
Preliminary planning for IS includes pt screening and baseline assessments, establishing explicit pt outcomes
Pt therapeutic outcomes for IS should include absence or improved atelectasis, decreased RR, norm pulse, norm or improved BS, increased SPO2, VC and PEF, restoration of FRC or VC, improved cough, normal CXR, improved P(A-a)O2
Implementation of IS includes Attainable goals with moderate effort set by RT, observation of pt performance by RT, good pt instruction
Follow-up with IS should include check to be sure pt is using IS correctly
What pt need to be screened for IS and given a baseline assessment upper ab or thoracic surgery patients
IS hold is how long 5 to 10 seconds

Lung expansion therapy includes IPPB, IS, CPAP, PEP
The most common serious problems seen in pt after thoracic or abdomen surgery is atelectasis, acute resp failure and pneumonia
The two primary types of atelectasis seen in post op are reabsorption atelectasis and passive atelectasis
Reabsorption atelectasis is mucus plugs prevent ventilation, air trapped gas is absorbed into blood and alveoli then collapse
Passive atelectasis is persistent small VT causes distal alveoli to collapse from lack of ventilation
Lobar atelectasis is severe form of atelectasis seen in about 5 percent of pt usually caused by a large mucus plug in pt with low VT and excessive secretions
What is the most common cause of atelectasis in the hospital pt does not take periodic deep breath and fully expand lungs.
Indications for lung expansion therapy are post op, neuromuscular, sedation, spinal cord injury, bedridden from major trauma

Physical signs of atelectasis are, increased RR, fine late inspire crackles over region affected, bronchial BS, diminish BS tachycardia if hypoxemia present
How does rt confirm atelectasis CXR opacity, displaced interlobal fissures, crowded pulm vessels, air bronchograms, elevated diaphragm, tracheal shift
Lung expansion therapy increase lung volume by what increasing transpulmonary press gradient
Proper use of IPPB requires careful pt selection, indications be specifically defined, treatment porpertly administered and monitored by trained RT
IPPB is the application of inspiratory positive pressure to spontaneously breathing patients as an intermittent short term modality never as a prophylactic
How long does an IPPB treatment last 15 to 20 minutes
During an IPPB treatment, positive pressure is transmitted from the alveoli to where pleural space
Indications for IPPB need to improve lung expansion, atelectasis when IS or CPT not working, high risk for atelectasis but unable to cooperate, pt who only needs 1 therapy instead of multiple modalities, inability to clear secretions and other modes fail, short term vent
Contraindications for IPPB pneumothorax, ICP greater 15, unstable hemodynamics, active hemoptysis, tacheoesophageal fistula, recent esphogeal surgery, TB, CXR with blebs, recent surgery to face or head, hiccups, air swallowing nausea
Hazards to IPPB increased airway resistance, barotraumas, nosocomial infection, resp alkalosis (most common) pco2 down ph up, hyperoxia, impaired venous return, gastric destention if pt not alert, airtrapping psychological dependence
4 steps to administering IPPB includes 1 planning, 2 evaluating alternatives, 3 baseline assessments, 4 implementation
Preliminary planning for IPPB therapy includes determining need, base therapeutic outcome on diagnostic information and as explicit and measurable as possible, significant atelectasis, reduced VC less than 10 mL/kg,at risk pts who need assistance breathing but not mech vent
Potential outcome to IPPB therapy are improved VC, increased FEV1 or peak flow, enhanced cough, improved CXR, BS and oxygenation, favorable subjective pt response

Infection control in IPPB includes hand washing, CDC universal precautions (gloves), CDC TB airborne gloves gown hepamask, pt infection control posted, only sterile dilutes and meds, disinfect reusables, change nebs or disinfect 24 hrs on continuous, rinse in sterile water only
Equipment preparation for IPPB when and for what before taking to pt room, for leaks
Patient orientation in IPPB should include explain dr order, what IPPB does, how it feels, what to expect
Patient position in IPPB is semi fowler with no slouching supine if pt unable to semi fowler
Initial application of IPPB includes insert past teeth, lips seal, set machine so breath can initiate with minimal pt effort, adjust to -1 t -2 (system check) system press at 10 move slowly to 15, 6 to 8 breaths per min, 2 to 4 times longer exp than insp
What happens to IPPB if there is a leak it shuts off
99 percent of the time a leak can be fixed in IPPB with what nose clips
What should RTT do if mouth wont seal in IPPB use CPAP mask

Post treatment assessment of IPPB includes repeat pt assessment, vitals, BS, sensorium, untoward effects and specific clinical follow up, did pt meet goals, frequency based on response to therapy
How often should acute care pt be reevaluated for IPPB on dr orders, based on pt response to therapy, every 72 hours or with any change in status
Record keeping when discontinuing IPPB should be sucking but complete, include pre and post assessment, untoward effects need to notify dr, nurse and noted
The 5 things to monitor on the machine during IPPB are 1sensitivity, 2 peak pressure, 3 flow settings, 4 fio2 and 5 I:E ratio

Pressure manometer indicates high negative pressure prior to inspiration adjust sensitivity
Pressure manometer hesitates or rises erratically during inspiration flow is to low
Bennet cycles prematurely pt abstracting mouthpiece or pressure set to low
Bennet cycles on and off rapidly coach pt how machine works…only cycles when it senses a breath, obstruction or kinked tube, senility to high, Rate control on? Turn off rate control.
Bennet inspiratory time to long check peak flow control is fully clockwise, check for leaks , pressure to high, coach pt to take exp pause
Bennet ventilator fails to cycle off flow to low or leak in pt circuit
The most accurate way t measure inspired volumes is volume displacement
Three methods of volume measurement used in IS are timing the duration of flow, volume displacement and photoelectric
