Using Critical Thinking to Manage Oxygen Therapies- A Course for Competency Assessment

A Link-it Course© A Link-it course is a critical thinking course. The most meaningful learning occurs when connections are made using analytical thought processes.

Oxygen therapies are a necessary part of many medical treatment regimens. The wide array of both acute and chronic disease states and conditions managed, either directly or indirectly, with this valuable medication are seen in every single type of care setting. As both medical and nursing based research have provided evidence of best practices with oxygen therapy, treatment has evolved. The evolution has resulted in extended use of oxygen therapies far beyond the acute care setting into the realms of post-acute and home care via many more types of delivery devices and management protocols. As part of the collaborative care team providing care for patients requiring oxygen therapy, nurses must maintain competency to ensure compliance with care standards. This course serves as a review of theory and nursing actions as well as a competency assessment.

This course provides the content necessary to promote use of critical thinking in managing a patient requiring oxygen therapy. The Linkit symbol will link associations between theory and nursing action rationales.

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Define oxygen and its purpose in maintaining homeostasis using critical thinking
2. Explain the relationship between oxygen status and systemic oxygenation and perfusion
3. State the oxygen percentages provided by various oxygen delivery devices
4. Identify signs and symptoms indicating hypoxia in a patient which may indicate decompensation
5. Name the steps necessary in initiation, maintenance, titration and discontinuation of oxygen therapy
