My mother was hospitalized for pneumonia. After ten days of hospitalization and complications of the pneumonia my mom came home on a prescription inhaler and home oxygen because her saturation while ambulating would not go above 80% on room air. Also, an incentive spirometer was sent home with written instructions. The incentive spirometer was most challenging for her to understand. She is 75 years old and has a high school diploma. She is ready to learn because of her willingness to get better.
The learning objective is to understand the parts of the incentive spirometer and what the mean. There are printed materials to follow along. The measurement is when I can ask my mom what all the parts are and what do they mean. The teaching strategy is understanding the printed materials and self-teaching. Taxonomy is the cognitive domain with comprehension.
The next learning objective is watching a video online demonstrating the use of the incentive spirometer and my mom will be able to demonstrate to me on how to use the incentive spirometer. The measurement is how she demonstrated the use of the incentive spirometer after watching the video demonstration and doing a return demonstration. This should include proper position, holding the incentive spirometer correctly. Sealing your lips around the mouth piece and breathing in slowly to the correct goal number on the cylinder. Taxonomy was psychomotor domain and to demonstrate.
The last learning objective is to walk thru the demonstration again verbalizing the correct steps in order. The teaching strategies will be to discuss the steps of the use of the incentive spirometer. Taxonomy is affective domain is responding and to discuss.
