Check consciousness
Assess ability to take a deep breath
Assess ability to speak in a full sentence – can the patient speak a full sentences, juse phrases, single words, or not at all
Assess if the airway is clear


Look, listen and feel for the movement of air
Assess the adequacy of the breathing process – is their sufficient rate and volume of air being moved?
Assess work of breathing (patient effort versus efficacy)
Listen to the chest (through Auscultation) and identify any variances of normal breathing. Normal breathing should sound like soft air movements; absent breath sounds is very bad; wheezes suggests bronchospasm; crackles and rales indicates pulomonary oedema or infection.
