The clinical focus of Module 2 is centred on the diagnosis and pre-hospital management of respiratory failure. The non-technical/CRM topic for this module is leadership. Chapter one of this module reviews the management of paediatric asthma. Chapter two focuses on the differential diagnosis and management of respiratory failure – it is divided into two separate lecture focusing specifically on both adult and paediatric medicine. Chapter two also explores the pros and cons of different leadership styles and team dynamics.
The simulations to be completed in this module are closely related to the content contained in these lectures.
