‘This course has benefitted my practice’

A patient of mine weighing 210 kg was admitted having sustained a cervical fracture with an SCI. Post-surgery he was unable to maintain his oxygen saturations.

and it was assumed that this was related to his cord injury. I was able to identify that it was due to undiagnosed OSA and the position of his palate due to his obesity; as a result we changed our management and his saturations returned to normal.

Without my knowledge gained from the course we would not have changed our usual practice.
