Good Evening !
Hope all is well 💚
I am a Resiratory Theraphy clinician and I would like to know as a health care provider the most significant needs of the patient, family and loved ones battling with Pulmonary Hypertension . My goal as a clinical is to be the best health care provider that I can possibly be . Gaining knowledge not only from text books but from a 1 on 1 encounter .
Thank you so much for responding !
Hi Alex and welcome!
Thanks for your work as a RT!
I think first we as patients and families need to be heard ! Too often, in clinical settings the staff often think everyone is the same and with PH, it’s craxy how very different our bodies react and respond to therapies, including O2. So just listening first, then I think education for both the patient and family/ caregiver.
O2 safety tips as well as not to be afraid if the tanks is important, just last week I had an aunt call me and say she don’t use her O2 because she thinks it will blow up if she doesn’t do it right, I’m sure you e heard that from many.
