Learners will discuss the most common conditions that can affect people’s breathing and some of the monitoring procedures and treatment options


There is a written knowledge assessment required on this course, at the end of the training to allow them to evidence their understanding and a certificate of attendance will be issued to support this assessment and both can be used within a portfolio of CPD.
