Respiratory Care Courses:
RCP103 - Cardiopulmonary Anatomy/Physiology
Catalog Description: Examines the control and function of the cardiopulmonary system and how it relates to other body organ systems. Explores cardiac and pulmonary physiology and pathophysiology in the neonatal, pediatric, adult, and geriatric patient. Prerequisite or corequisite: BIO 105 or BIO 152 with a grade of ‘C’ or higher.
RCP108 - Medical Terminology for Health Studies
Catalog Description: Provides an overview of medical terminology. This includes prefixes, suffixes, word roots, terms, and abbreviations.
RCP117 - Respiratory Pharmacology
Catalog Description: Introduces general and specific respiratory pharmacological principles, including drug calculations, the autonomic nervous system, and delivery methods. Explores drugs used in the treatment of asthma, chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other pulmonary disorders. Prerequisites RCP114 and RCP115 with a C or better Lecture: 1 hr.
RCP202 - Cardiopulmonary Pharmacology
Catalog Description: Introduces general pharmacological principles and management relative to the cardiopulmonary system. Includes management and treatment of specific cardiopulmonary disorders and drugs used in advanced cardiac life support (ACLS). Prerequisite: RCP117.
RCP203 - Neonatal and Pediatric Respiratory Care
Catalog Description: Explores neonatal and pediatric respiratory care beginning with the developmental changes in utero, the transition at birth, and the continuing development thereafter. Examines the risks and problems associated with these developments and the procedures and rationales for delivering the appropriate respiratory care. Reviews specific neonatal and pediatric disease states, and their treatment relative to respiratory care. Prerequisite: RCP116, RCP 117, and RCP 118 each with a grade of ‘C’ or higher.
RCP204 - Cardiopulmonary Disease
Catalog Description: Examines categories of pulmonary diseases including etiology, detection, management, treatment, and prognosis. Prerequisite: RCP114 and RCP 116 each with a grade of ‘C’ or higher.
RCP209 - Cardiopulmonary Diagnostics
Catalog Description: Introduces equipment used to monitor patients and diagnose cardiopulmonary diseases. Interprets clinical information obtained from pulmonary function testing, electrocardiography, and hemodynamics. Prerequisite: RCP114 and RCP 116 each with a grade of ‘C’ or higher.
RCP210 - Clinical Practice2
Catalog Description: Provides respiratory care clinical experiences at specialty sites such as hospital operating rooms, sleep medicine clinics, and pulmonary function testing areas. Applies cardiopulmonary assessment, critical thinking and respiratory care knowledge to adult patients. Requires demonstration of knowledge by completing a mock certification exam. Supervised respiratory care at adult critical care rotation sites. Prerequisite: RCP118 with a grade of ‘C’ or higher.
RCP216 - Clinical Practice 3
Catalog Description: Provides respiratory care clinical experiences in home care, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, neonatal/pediatric intensive care, pulmonary rehabilitation, long-term care and adult critical care sites. Fine-tunes cardiopulmonary assessment skills by applying four academic terms of respiratory care knowledge to patient care. Specialized supervised respiratory care rotations (384 hours required). Prerequisite: RCP210 with a grade of ‘C’ or higher.
RCP218 - Respiratory Care 3
Catalog Description: Reinforces the total respiratory education through the use of prior national board exam questions in an interactive format. Introduces teaching skills through preparation and presentation of a classroom lecture. Requires demonstration of knowledge by completing a mock registry exam. Prerequisite: RCP 210 with a grade of ‘C’ or higher.
RCP219 - Introduction to Sleep Medicine
Catalog Description: An overview of the sleep disorders most commonly seen in the polysomnography laboratory. Discusses the causes and symptoms of each and presents specific features which will be seen in the polysomnogram and multiple sleep latency test. Stresses the importance of obtaining an accurate assessment, including an in depth patient history, and pertinent clinical data by way of the polysomnography test. Also presents the clinical differences in these disorders among pediatric and adult patients. 3 Credit hours
