3 primary alterations that affect ventilation
State of ventilation in excess that is required ro eliminate CO2 produced.
Causes of Hyperventilation
Hyperventilation can be caused by an excess of these 2 drugs
Occurs when alveolar ventilation is inadequate to meet the body's oxygen demand or eliminate sufficient carbon dioxide
Who should you be especially careful of when administering oxyen to and why?
COPD patients.. Adapted to high CO2 levels and CO2 chemoreceptors are no longer sensitive
S/S of hypoventilation
mental status changes
potential cardiac arrest
Inadequate tissue oxygenation at the cellular level
S/S of hypoxia
inability to concentrate
Hypoxia causes changes in which 2 vital signs?
increases rate and depth of respiration
Risk factors for URI in infants and toddlers.
Exposure to other children and secondhand smoke
Teething process causes congestion which encourages bacterial growth and increased risk
Risk factors for respiratory diseases in school-aged children and adolescents
