Oxygen Titration and Administration for Physical Therapists and Regulated Health Professionals

April 2, 2018

A Two-Week Online Course

2-15 April, 2018

Oxygen administration and titration, a controlled act with the College of Physiotherapists of Ontario, requires a thorough understanding of pathophysiological components of the cardiorespiratory system and mechanisms of hypoxemia. Accurate cardiorespiratory assessment, monitoring, and analytical skills are also required to safely and effectively provide this intervention. In this online course, you will gain the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills required for physical therapists to provide safe and effective oxygen administration and titration to patients across the continuum of care. We will discuss pathophysiological causes of respiratory conditions and complications such as hypoxemia in the context of physical therapy interventions including oxygen titration, exercise, and mobilization. Alongside this sound theoretical overview, we will demonstrate oxygen administration and titration through case-based learning with simulation using video. This course is designed to build upon foundational entry-to-practice physical therapy to advance practical knowledge and skills.
