The target audience for this medical event is multiple professions, including nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists and radiologic technologists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.00 CPEU.
Dyspnea is a distressing symptom that has been described since ancient times, but only recently has it been comprehensively assessed and managed across disease states. The sensation of dyspnea results from interactions among multiple physiological, psychological, social and environmental factors. As with pain, adequate assessment of dyspnea depends on self-report by the person reporting breathing discomfort. Potential causes, underlying mechanisms and management options are addressed.
The goal of this continuing education program is to update nurses and respiratory therapists on the mechanisms of dyspnea and its evidence-based assessment and management.
• Describe the characteristics, common causes and underlying mechanisms of dyspnea
• Discuss the evidence-based assessment of dyspnea with emphasis on clinical indicators in different conditions and patient populations
• Explain the evidence-based management of dyspnea
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
