Lecture Overview

When is oxygen therapy, and when is it not? You may be surprised. Recent evidence shows that there are now some conditions where oxygen therapy is contraindicated, and may even cause harm. Use this session to update your knowledge on why, when, and how oxygen therapy is administered.

Informative resource. Don't listen using headphones as there are very loud, ear-piercing beeping sounds when he is talking about O2 administration in MI.
