  • Recognize the difference between patients who do and do not require immediate intervention
  • Recognition of cardiopulmonary arrest early and begin CPR within 10 seconds

  • Know the difference between respiratory distress and failure
  • Early interventions for respiratory distress and failure
  • The difference between compensated and decompensated (hypotensive) shock
  • Early interventions for the treatment of shock
