This module aims to assist practitioners to perform a respiratory assessment. A logical and structured approach to respiratory assessment, such as the ‘look, listen and feel’ approach, should be undertaken. The respiratory rate is an early indicator of deterioration of a patient’s condition. Signs of clinical deterioration should be responded to in a timely manner. A track and trigger scoring tool can be used to evaluate physiological data, develop a management plan and indicate future investigations.
