This instructor's lesson plan guide on the respiratory system is one of fifteen modules designed for use in the training of emergency medical technicians (paramedics). Five units of study are presented: (1) anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system; (2) pathophysiology assessment of the patient; (3) pathophysiology and management of respiratory problems; (4) techniques of management including administration of oxygen, suctioning, use of nebulizers, direct laryngoscopy, and endotracheal intubation; and (5) clinical experience in the intensive care unit, operating room, and morgue. Each unit contains these elements: behavioral objectives, teaching procedures, a content outline, demonstration outline, list of needed equipment and materials, and guidelines for activities to be performed by students applying the skills. Skill evaluation sheets are provided. (It is suggested that each module can be presented individually or combined with other modules to construct a course for a selected group of students.
