For all those emergency department nurses stepping into the resuscitation room for the first time (or itching to do so), here is a very good introductory video on using the Oxylog 3000 ventilator.
Of course the very best way to become familiar with this common piece of resuscitation kit is to grab your mentor or educator and get them to walk you through it.
But by watching this video a few times you will no doubt be able to impress them with your ventilatory acumen. Go you!


Once you have watched it you might also like to read this: Care of a ventilated patient in the emergency department.

    • G Boucle said: This is not surprising at all to me! Nurses can and do bully patients, I was on the brunt of this after a surgery with spinal fusion on 5 segments! The pain was blinding, they bickered in front of me over who would change the cath bag on the floor already filled and looking about to burst, I found this extremely upsetting....
