Respiratory patients are commonly seen in practice, often presenting as high-risk complex cases with intensive care requirements. They can be incredibly challenging to nurse, but extremely rewarding, and allow the veterinary nurse to demonstrate a wide variety of skills.  This learning series with Laura Jones looks to strengthen understanding of the respiratory patient and provide practical tips on management so that nurses feel better equipped to approach these cases with confidence.
