I took a practice exam that had a ton of patient prioritization questions which included several with COPD patients. I think I'm confused about what is an okay oxygentation saturation for a COPD patient. I was taught that it depends on their baseline, but that below 90 is not good. Obviously they don't give you a baseline in these types of questions, and I'm not sure that my below 90 rule is correct by ATI testing standards. Can someone help?
Thanks in advance!
To cjr2619 .... Good question...I no longer have the book, so I cannot give you the ISBN, but I believe is the first one you mentioned.
I found the title of the book by searching Ebay and I recognize the photo as the book I had, it is called: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment By LaCharity, Linda A., Ph.D./ Kumagai, Candice K./ Bartz, Barbara/ Hansten, Ruth.
Good luck, the book was just awesome in my view.
