Respiratory therapists and nurses understand, perhaps better than anyone, that breath is life. What might seem like a simple process—mechanically helping a patient breathe better through a tube or breathing kit—is a nuanced process with many variables that contribute to successful patient care.
The Avanos Respiratory Health courses cover a wide range of topics, such as the importance of oral hygiene in preventing hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP) and VAE, to the role of microaspiration in these same conditions.
Clinical experts also offer guidance on getting ahead of and preventing crises and catastrophes associated with ventilator associated events, many of which can be avoided or solved quickly.
No matter which topic brings therapists and nurses to our courses, Avanos is a trusted source of clinical content that can assist them in providing better care to their patients.
