Ventilator Waveform Analysis
Interpreting ventilator waveforms is an important skill to acquire before taking the NBRC RRT board exams. I’ve always been amazed at how much you can learn about your patient’s condition just by looking at the waveforms. Of course, there’s so much to know that it can be a bit overwhelming and difficult to understand at first.
That’s why I decided to break down ventilator waveforms in a simple way, without overwhelming you with too much information.
So in this video, you will learn how to identify secretions in the airway, the need for a bronchodilator, patient triggered vs. machine triggered breaths, and if the patient is not receiving enough flow.
I hope you enjoy it, and please leave a comment below if there are any other NBRC RRT board exam review topics you’d like me to cover.
