Case Study 1- Doctors

A 45 year old male patient known case of COPD was admitted to ICU with breathing difficulty. His room air ABG showed: pH 7.32, PCO2  52, PO2 45, HCO3 - 26. He was started on ebulised medications and injectable antibiotics.

The number of attempts remaining is 2

1 / 5

Which of the following cannot be a cause for the buzzing alarm?

2 / 5

the same patient if he fails the spontaneous breathing trial (SBT) may exhibit which of the following clinical signs and symptoms:

3 / 5

What would be the best mode of Oxygen therapy for this patient?

4 / 5
