Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 12:30-2:10; Bridwell 302
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Des Jardins, T and Burton, G. Clinical Manifestations and Assessment of Respiratory Disease, Sixth Edition, Mosby 2011.
Egan’s Fundamentals of Respiratory Care, Ninth Edition, Mosby 2009.
There are a number of computer assisted clinical simulations, located in the Bridwell Hall Computer Lab, that will help instruct you and test your knowledge of common pulmonary disease states. The advantage of these items is that they will greatly help you prepare for your NBRC Clinical Simulation Examination.
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.
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.
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.
All components of RESP 3563 are designed to represent the efforts of each student INDIVIDUALLY and are NOT to be shared, copied or plagiarized from other sources. When students submit their efforts for grading, they are attesting that abided by this rule.
Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests or examinations; (2) dependence upon the aid of sources beyond those authorized by the instructor in writing papers, preparing reports, solving problems or completing other assignments; or (3) the acquisition of tests or other academic materials belonging to the university faculty or staff without permission.
Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, the use of, by paraphrase or direct quotation without correct citation in the text and on the reference list, the published and unpublished works of another person. Students may NOT submit papers and assignments that they have previously submitted for this or other courses. The use of materials generated by agencies engaged in “selling” term papers is also plagiarism.
Academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, etc.) will not be tolerated in this class. Whenever a student is unsure of whether a particular situation will be interpreted as academic dishonesty, he/she should ask the instructor for clarification. If students are guilty of academic dishonesty, a grade of “0” will be given for the quiz, assignment, etc. Cases may also be referred to the Dean of Students for possible dismissal from the university.
By enrolling in this course, the student expressly grants MSU a “limited right” in all intellectual property created by the student for the purpose of this course. The “limited right” shall include but shall not be limited to the right to reproduce the student’s work product in order to verify originality and authenticity, and for educational purposes. Specifically, faculty may submit student papers and assignments to an external agency to verify originality and authenticity, and to detect for plagiarism.
Student Honor Creed
"As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."
As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception.
Thus, we, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters.
We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student.
We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed.
