Flashcard 4 - Respiratory Flashcard Set for the CCRN


The correct answer is:

endotracheal intubation


Endotracheal intubation can be used to secure a patient’s airway in the event of severe respiratory distress. Once the patient is intubated, mechanical ventilation can be used to provide therapeutic breath regulation and oxygen support.
