Implementing RMT

Course Description:
In this podcast, we spoke with Brooke Richardson about respiratory muscle training (RMT) and how to implement in the acute care setting. During the discussion, she discussed patient selection considerations and assessment parameters, including how to determine if IMT (inspiratory) or EMT (expiratory) is the best option for your patient. Achieving competency in RMT also was discussed. After completing this course, you will be able to:

  1. Describe considerations for implementing RMT in the acute care setting.
  2. List two points for determining whether to use IMT or EMT.
  3. Describe what parameters to consider for implementing an RMT program in acute care, including billing and device costs.
