Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

Case Reports:

1. You MUST follow the format of case reports as presented in our professional journal, “Respiratory Care.”

3. If you choose to do a patient study, choose a patient that interests you and collect all necessary data, as per guidelines, for your paper. Your patient MUST be a pulmonary patient. If you choose to evaluate equipment, it must be directly tied to an actual patient in your care, unless you choose to do a retrospective study (requires permission from IRB).

4. It is mandatory that you follow all HIPPA regulations.

5. Be sure to write in a narrative style. An outline or any other deviation from this style will not be accepted, and your case study will be returned to you for a re-write.

6. Be sure to include all “units” when values are presented. For example, PaCO2 = 44 mm Hg.

7. Give all supplemental oxygen settings and/or ventilator settings when presenting a blood gas result.

8. Be aware of footnoting. For explicit directions on how to accomplish this, look at the following website : https://facstaff.unca.edu/epearson/footnote_guidelines.htm
