Brenda Wilson30 May 2018
This respiratory segment was helpful to me. It reinforced anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system. It reinforced the practice of listening to all he five lobes of the lungs. One lobe might have obstruction or infection. I revisited some airways problem and how this plays out in the way patients breathe, hold their posture and create breathing patterns. The section on coughing was extremely helpful to understand the mechanics of a cough and how to counteract it and help a patient to have control over their cough. I feel this knowledge will help my patients.
