What changes occur with aging that affect the respiratory system such as pneumonia and emphaysema Alterations in connective tissue, decrease elasticity of the thorax, body water decreases and imparement of the cilia, thickening of the alveolar membrane
How would you know if a patient is in respiratory distress.ex, coughing and choking after eating a meal restlessness and irritable maybe the first sighn of hypoxia, in eaderly people confusion often presents as oxygen level falls
discuss the common cause of hypoxia decrease o2 of varios organs
Discuss the use of a pulse oximeter, In which clinicals settings and for which patients would the device most likely be used is used for any patient thought to be at risk of hypoxia, it measures o2 saturation by determining the % of hemoglobin that is bound with os
what precations should the nurse take in administerin o2 to a patient in acute respiratory distress make sure the air way is not blocked, confirm order and flow rate, monitor for hypoxia, tell patient not to get up
Discuss commonly used o2 delivery devices face mask, tracheostomy collar, nasal cannula
When can a chest drainage tube be placed in the interpleural space when the lung collapse
Discuss ways that patients can support their own respiratort care Avoid places where the will be exposed to the flu, distance themselvrs from anyone who is coughing or sneezing and from cigareets

How much oxygen are you getting out of the air 21%
What is the purpose of chest draining for water and air drainage used to drain air fluid of the pleural space and keep it from being sucked back into the chest.
When can a chest drainage be placed in the interpleural space lung collapse
Hypoxemia decrease amount of oxygen in the bloodstream
hypercapnia increase levels of carbon dioxide
suctioning pressure is set between 80 and 120mmhg
How long should you suction for 10 sec
