RESPIRATORY UNIT

Check out this website of practice ABG problems! Doing several of these really helps to get the hang of what the heck ABG values signify:
ABG Practice Problems

And here are my A&P notes on the respiratory system.

Also, for those of you with iPhones/iPads, check out the free iTunes U app.
Search for "Nursing" and a whole bunch of free lectures and resources come up!
For this particular unit, I found a really good lecture on oxygenation, which you can download here.
