Flight Physiology (Single Module)







Course Overview: The Flight Physiology module is a foundational component essential for evaluations and clinical practice within critical care in pre-hospital contexts. This comprehensive module delves into critical aspects such as gas laws, flight stressors, atmospheric considerations, stages of hypoxia, decompression effects, and the duration of useful consciousness. It is designed to equip students with a deep understanding of how atmospheric pressure influences the partial pressure of oxygen, the pathophysiology of diffusion and V/Q mismatch, and the disease processes that contribute to these conditions.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Define the role of atmospheric pressure in determining the partial pressure of oxygen.
  • Discuss the pathophysiology of diffusion and the oxygen molecule pathway through the body.
  • Explore the pathophysiology of V/Q mismatch.
  • Identify disease processes that contribute to V/Q mismatch and shunt.

This module is part of the FlightBridgeED FP-C, CCP-C, CFRN®, and CTRN® Exam Review Course, and ARC+. It is offered as a single module since some employers require it before hiring. If you already have access to our review course or ARC+, please do not purchase this product as you already have access to it. Only buy if this is the only course you need and you are not enrolled in our review course or ARC+.
