Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Lecture Examinations 60%
Care Plans/Assignments 20%
Final Examination 20%
Care plans will be assigned throughout the semester associated with pathologies discussed as part of the course. Each patient presents with a particular unique problem. The student will evaluate the data on each patient and produce a respiratory plan of care. The format for these care plans is as follows:
Subjective: The patient’s chief complaint
Objective: Measured data – Vitals, chest sounds, CXR, Labs, etc.
Assessment: In your opinion, what is wrong with the patient?
Plan: What do you want to do with the patient?
Additional assignments may be assigned throughout the semester supplementing the learning material.
Semester Examinations and the Final Examination:In-class tests that will consist of definitions, multiple choice, true/false, fill-in-the-blank, short answer, or essay type questions.
APPROXIMATE GRADING SCALE
A minimum grade of 75 (C) is required in all respiratory courses. Failure to attain a minimum grade of C will prevent the student from progressing in the program.
MISSED EXAM POLICY
A 15% reduction will be taken for each day (weekends and holidays included) after the scheduled exam date. The professor reserves the right to make unscheduled exams essay in nature and considerably more challenging.
Regular class attendance is required. No distinction is made between excused and unexcused absences unless the absence has been cleared through the office of the Dean of Students, Athletic Department or Academic Affairs. If a student misses a lecture, it is the student’s responsibility to work with other class members to determine what material was missed. Please refer to the MSU Student Handbook for more information.
