Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
• Describe the role that autonomic reflex activity plays in maintaining blood pressure.
• Identify pathophysiologic factors that impair autonomic reflex activity.
• Identify pharmacologic factors that impair autonomic reflex activity.
• Explain how autonomic reflex activity optimizes oxygenation of blood in the lung.
• Develop a plan of care for patients that is based on an understanding of autonomic reflex activity.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
