Respiratory Therapy was put to the hardest test in the history of the profession due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to RTs working tirelessly across the globe to combat the virus, publications on the practice have erupted these past two years. The “COVID-19: Lessons Learned” guide and course aim to combine the literature on COVID-19 and provide evidence-based practices related to the care of these critically ill patients. This will include the use of non-invasive respiratory support, invasive ventilation, prone positioning, aerosol-generating procedures, shared ventilation, issues related to oxygen therapy, silent hypoxemia, ventilator shortages, and long COVID.

COVID-19 will remain a public health concern for years to come and new problems and findings are surely forthcoming. This guide helps set a solid foundation in the RT’s ability to deliver the best care to patients with COVID-19.

The course is free for members ($15 for non-members) and is available for 4 CRCE. The guide is available to download for free without CRCE.
