Haha! I guess that's apart of the consequences of learning how to be a nurse during a pandemic.
I don't think my question was clear enough though! At school, I was taught that there are times in which I can give oxygen before being prescribed an order. So for example, during an emergency. I was just wondering in these scenarios how would I know how much oxygen I should give them. Based on what you said it seems like you use your clinical judgment but as of now I don't have much of it haha, so I was wondering what I should do?
For example, if a patient had a septic shock and I gave them 2L of oxygen while their spo2 is at 75% that seems kind of inappropriate to me so based on their spo2 and symptoms I was wondering if I could have a range for each oxygen delivery device (NP, simple mask, non-rebreather) I should give based on their spo2 and symptoms.
