Course Descriptions

RSP 1010 Foundations of Respiratory Care (3) fall This course establishes the basis for the respiratory care profession. The history of respiratory medicine and science will be presented. Students will review the issues of quality in respiratory care and be introduced to the concept of evidence-based medicine as it applies to the practice of respiratory care. Students will be introduced to routine bedside care and patient safety, including the patient interview, measurement of vital signs, body mechanics, and infection control procedures. The topics of communication, medical ethics, and legal implications of practice will be introduced; 3 hours of lecture per week. Prerequisite: concurrent enrollment in RSP 1011 RSP 1011 Respiratory Care I (4) fall Students will begin to learn the skills and techniques of managing and treating patients with respiratory needs.





Cardiopulmonary anatomy and physiology is introduced as the basis for understanding clinical applications of respiratory care, thus encouraging students to understand the rationale for making clinical decisions that involve patient assessment and therapeutic measures. Students will learn and practice some of the assessment skills required to make an objective evaluation of the patient’s condition or response to therapy.

Students will begin to develop the competence required to deliver specific respiratory care therapeutics to patients; 3 hours of lecture, 2 hours of laboratory per week. Prerequisite: concurrent enrollment in RSP 1010 RSP 1012 Respiratory Care II (4) spring In this course, students will learn the skills and techniques of managing and treating patients with respiratory needs. The clinical effects of various types of respiratory therapy and diagnostic techniques are explored.

Oxygen therapy, aerosol therapy, and respiratory drugs are thoroughly discussed. Hyperinflation therapy, pulmonary hygiene and chest physical therapy, as well as techniques of airway management are included.

In the laboratory, students will apply their classroom knowledge of the above subjects; 3 hours of lecture, 2 hours of laboratory per week. Prerequisite: RSP 1011 and BIO 2011 RSP 1210 Respiratory Anatomy and Physiology (3) spring This course teaches the basic physiology of the pulmonary system. The physiological principles underlying various therapeutic, diagnostic, and monitoring procedures in respiratory care will be detailed. Students will interpret patient data, solve problems, and analyze patient cases using these physiological concepts; 3 hours of lecture per week. Prerequisite: RSP 1011 and BIO 2011 RSP 1601 Respiratory Clinical Field Experience (2) spring This is a field experience of one day per week that allows the student to become familiar with the hospital setting and perform basic respiratory therapy in non-critical areas of the hospital; 8 hours clinical per week;

graded Pass/No Pass. Prerequisite: BIO 2011 and RSP 1011 RSP 2011 Cardiopulmonary Disease I (5) fall Analysis of respiratory disturbances requires an understanding of the etiology, pathophysiology, and clinical signs of the disease, thus leading to a plan for treatment. The study of cardiopulmonary disease will begin with a presentation of advanced clinical assessment techniques. Measures used to evaluate ventilation, hemodynamics, oxygen transport, and tissue oxygenation will be discussed in relation to respiratory assessment of the critically ill patient. Chest radiographs and electrocardiographs will be presented; 5 hours of lecture per week. Prerequisite: RSP 1210 and 1012 and BIO 2012

Course Descriptions

RSP 2012 Cardiopulmonary Disease II (5) spring This course is a continuation of RSP 2011 and presents additional diseases affecting the pulmonary system. For each disease, emphasis is placed on etiology, pathogenesis, pathology, pathophysiology, and clinical features. A case study approach is utilized to enhance the student’s ability to exercise judgment in handling patient complaints; collecting and examining data; formulating treatment options; assessing patient responses to treatment; and modifying therapy; 5 hours of lecture per week. Prerequisite: RSP 2011 and 2013 RSP 2013 Respiratory Care III (4) fall This course leads the student through an ordered approach to modern ventilator care. A systematic development of mechanical ventilation competencies is laid out concept upon concept. Noninvasive and invasive monitoring of the patient on mechanical ventilation is also presented. In the classroom, students will apply these concepts to patient care scenarios. In the laboratory, students will complete a series of mechanical ventilation and critical care monitoring competencies; 3 hours of lecture, 2 hours of laboratory per week. Prerequisite: RSP 1012 and 1210 and BIO 2012 RSP 2602 Respiratory Clinical Field Experience II (4) fall This is a field experience of two days per week that allows the student to work in clinical areas in which they have received instruction. Students will be directly and indirectly observed performing respiratory care in the critical care and non-critical care settings; 16 hours of clinical per week; graded Pass/No Pass.

Prerequisite: RSP 1601 and 2801 and BIO 2012 RSP 2603 Respiratory Clinical Experience III (6) spring This course is designed to provide supervised clinical experience in the critical care and specialty service areas of the hospital and in the community. There is a strong emphasis on intensive care techniques and procedures. Instruction will take place in the adult, pediatric, and neonatal areas. Students will be introduced to infant and pediatric mechanical ventilation and home care. Students will continue to gain proficiency in
