COPD; Roadside to Resus

Welcome back to our first Roadside to Resus episode for 2023!

We're back with the huge topic that is COPD. In this episode we're going to delve into the depths of the topic, helping us to deliver the best possible care for this frequently encountered presentation.

Along with the standard coverage from incidence, to pathophysiology, to presentation and treatment, we'll also be covering those topics that you've specifically asked for;

  • The mechanism behind hypercapnoeic respiratory failure, in those patients given to much oxygen
  • Is there a role for end tidal CO2 interpretation in those spontaneously ventilating in acute exacerbations of COPD
  • How do we tease out those for home care versus those that require hospital admission
  • What is the role of Magnesium in these patients

Once again we'd love to hear any comments or questions either via the website or social media.
