The 7 lessons are about: dyspnea and coughing, anxiety, nausea and vomiting, marking and dying phase, palliative sedation, delirium and loved ones. Each basic training comes with a PowerPoint presentation, an accompanying test and an explanation on YouTube.

Dyspnoea

At least the cause and the drug and non-drug policy are always discussed in the training courses about the symptoms. With dyspnoea and coughing, CT images can also be seen that show how the lung image can be diffusely affected.

There is also a tip for measuring the saturation at home: if you put a plastic sandwich bag on the patient’s finger, you do not have to disinfect the meter, this does not affect the measurement, according to the LUMC. The LUMC does not recommend using a ventilator to cool the patient because of the risk of contamination.

To mark

Among other things, the marking training explains how you can tell that a patient with covid-19 is rapidly deteriorating. Intense tired, exhausted and pale, possibly bothered by blue lips, a fast weak wrist and clammy skin are characteristics.

The basic training covid-19 and palliative care are available at Zorg Voor Beter.
