Your patient is breathing oddly, or not breathing at all. How do you recognise what’s gone wrong, and how do you treat it? Beginning with a brief recap of the physiology of normal respiration and the diagnosis tools we use to assess breathing, this session will cover the main sources of respiratory problems, and how to recognise and treat some of the conditions you may encounter as a first aider, including choking, drowning, asthma and anaphylaxis. The session will end with scenarios.

This talk is part of the Cambridge University First Aid Society series.
