Neonatal Respiratory Care: Essential Care, 2nd Edition (2 hrs)
This advanced-level course is designed for the respiratory therapist with a desire to learn more about the development of the fetus, changes that occur during or shortly after birth, and how to assess and treat the newborn. This course starts with the development of the lungs, discussing the stages of development and lung growth, fetal lung fluid, and, of vital importance, surfactant. Lung development and fetal circulation are also covered. Fetal circulation is unique, with three shunts to aid in fetal development. During and shortly after delivery, many changes must occur to allow the neonate to smoothly transition to the outside world. It is important to know whether the fetus or mother is at risk for developing problems after birth in order to anticipate such issues.
