This course was designed because new nursing staff in recovery room may not be able to directly correlate laryngospasm to an increased risk of pulmonary edema and therefore cannot recognize signs and symptoms of pulmonary edema.
After completing the activity, the learner will be able to:
- identify three signs and symptoms of pulmonary edema.
