About the course

Patients who require enhanced oxygenation of their arterial blood, for example, patients with respiratory conditions which have resulted in impaired gaseous exchanges in the lungs, or other conditions that impair oxygen delivery to the tissues, such as myocardial infarction are administered oxygen therapy. Oxygen is an effective drug which is used very commonly in healthcare. From internal medical problems to emergency situations, even surgical problems, health professionals care for patients receiving oxygen therapy.

Health workers are central to reducing or preventing adverse events related to respiratory dysfunction. They must also initiate and monitor interventions, particularly the administration of supplemental oxygen to treat respiratory dysfunction.

This course aims to enhance the knowledge of health professionals on the methods of oxygen administration and the safety measures to remember. This will help improve the quality of work thus increasing health outcomes.
