Understanding Respiratory Care Training


Course Overview: 

Our "Understanding Respiratory Care" course is meticulously designed to provide healthcare professionals with a comprehensive understanding of respiratory health and management. 

This course focuses on equipping participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to assess, diagnose, and provide effective care for individuals with respiratory conditions. By covering a range of topics related to respiratory anatomy, physiology, assessment, interventions, and disease management, this course aims to enhance the quality of care delivered to patients with respiratory issues. 

Completion of this course can help enhance a healthcare professional’s skillset to provide more opportunity for career development and help them provide better quality care. 


Course Duration: 

 1 day (6 Hours) 


Course Content: 

During our course, participants will: 

  • Explain How the Respiratory System Functions.
  • List Relevant Upper Airway and Respiratory Anatomy and Physiology.
  • Outline Health Problems That Impair Function - Referring to Individual’s Healthcare Plans.
  • Explain the Indications and Contraindications of Tracheostomies, Oxygen, Nebulisers, Cough Assist, Suction, and Non-Invasive Ventilation.
  • Explain the Risks and Benefits of Tracheostomies, Oxygen, Nebulisers, Cough Assist, Suction, and Non-Invasive Ventilation.
  • Describe the Checks, Safeguards, and Precautions Required for the Procedure and Equipment.
  • Outline the Importance of Following the Individual Prescription / Healthcare Plan.
  • List the Monitoring and Observation Steps Required.
  • Explain the Importance of "Hand-over," Communication, and Record Keeping.
  • Outline Emergencies and Circumstances That Would Require Urgent Medical Care and Treatment from the Emergency Services.
  • Practice Tracheostomy Care, Oxygen Administration, Nebuliser Administration, Cough Assist, Suction, and Non-Invasive Ventilation Utilising a Range of Delivery Methods in Simulation.


Course Objectives: 

After the course is completed, participants will be able to:

Comprehend Respiratory Physiology: Understand the structure and function of the respiratory system, including gas exchange, lung mechanics, and respiratory control. 

Perform Respiratory Assessment: Develop skills to assess respiratory function, including auscultation, measuring respiratory rate, and interpreting oxygen saturation levels. 

Recognise Common Respiratory Conditions: Identify and differentiate between common respiratory disorders such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and pneumonia. 

Provide Respiratory Therapies: Learn about various respiratory therapies, including oxygen therapy, nebulisation. 

Administer Medications: Gain proficiency in administering respiratory medications, including bronchodilators, corticosteroids, and mucolytics. 

Promote Patient Education: Understand the importance of educating patients about respiratory conditions, medication usage, lifestyle modifications, and self-management. 

Ensure Patient Safety and Ethical Care: Prioritise patient safety and ethical considerations in delivering respiratory care interventions. 


Course Assessment: 

 Participant comprehension and skills will be assessed through: 

  • Quizzes and assignments measuring theoretical understanding.
  • Practical assessments of respiratory assessment techniques and interpretation.
  • Participation in case discussions and scenario-based exercises.
  • A final assessment covering all aspects of respiratory care.


Upon Completion: 

Once the assessment has been passed, the participant will be awarded a certification of achievement in "Understanding Respiratory Care".
