Respiratory Disorders - Online Inservice
The respiratory system is composed of lungs and the airway and is involved in two main functions: supplying oxygen to all parts of the body and expelling carbon dioxide from the body. Any complication or disease of the respiratory system can be life-threatening as it may disrupt the normal breathing in a patient. The CNA should be able to identify any respiratory complications in a patient. Therefore, the purpose of inservice is to inform and educate nurse aides on the signs and symptoms of some common respiratory disorders
