NASAL CANNULA OET SPEAKING ROLE PLAY SCRIPT

Patient

Your preparation time is over. The role play will now last for about 5 minutes. Don’t worry if I stop you when the time is up. Can you start the role play, please?

Good morning. I’m Narso andrew One of the community nurses from Community Health Care. Am I talking to patricia?

Patient

Good morning andrew. Yes, I am Patricia.

I’m here to check on your recovery and see how you are coping with your oxygen therapy. How are you today?

Patient

I’m fine, thank you. It’s nice to see you.

It’s nice to see you too. So tell me Patricia how have you been feeling since you left the hospital?

Patient

Well I still get breathless sometimes especially when I walk or do some works. But I think it’s better than before. The oxygen helps me a lot.

I’m glad to hear that you have been using the nasal cannula as instructed, right?

Patient

Yes I have. But sometimes I wonder if I should use a mask instead. It seems more secure and effective.

Actually a nasal cannula is more suitable for your condition than a mask. Do you know why?

Patient

No nurse not really.

Let me explain patricia. A nasal cannula delivers oxygen directly to your nostrils which allows you to breathe more naturally, and comfortably. A mask covers your mouth and nose, which can make your throat dry and irritated. It can also interfere with your speech and eating  as nasal cannula is more discreet and convenient for long term use.

Patient

Oh, I see. That makes sense. Thank you for explaining that to me.

You’re very welcome. I’m happy to answer any questions you might have about your oxygen therapy. And do you have any concerns or questions?

Patient

Well I’m worried about how long I will need to use the oxygen therapy. Will I ever be able to breathe normally again?

I understand your concern patricia. It’s natural to feel anxious about your health and future. But please don’t lose hope. You have made a good recovery from pneumonia, and your lungs are healing gradually. Oxygen therapy helps you get enough oxygen and prevent further complications. It’s not a permanent solution but a temporary support until your lungs regain their full function.

Patient

Really? So is there a chance that I can stop using oxygen therapy someday?

Yes there is a chance. Depending on your progress and response to treatment, the doctor will monitor your condition closely, and adjust your oxygen therapy accordingly. You can also help yourself by following some simple tips such as quitting smoking if you smoke, Avoiding exposure to air pollution and allergens, eating a balanced diet, drinking plenty of fluids, and doing some gentle exercises as recommended by your physiotherapist.

Patient

Thank you for the advice Nurse. You are very kind and helpful.

It’s my pleasure Patricia. I’m here to support you, and make sure you are comfortable and safe at home. Is there anything else I can do for you today?

Patient

Well there is one thing that bothers me a lot.

What is it patricia?

Patient

The hospital food was terrible. It was bland and boring and made me lose my appetite.

Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. The hospital food is not always the best, but it’s meant to be nutritious and suitable for your condition.

Patient

But can I have some variety and taste in my food? Can’t I have some of my favorite dishes or spices?

Well it depends on what they are and how they affect your breathing and oxygen levels. Some foods are spices that can cause inflammation, or irritation in your lungs or throat, which can worsen your breathlessness or coughing.

Patient

Like what?

For example foods that are too salty, spicy, oily or acidic can be harmful for your lungs and Your throat. You should also avoid foods that are too cold or hot as they can trigger coughing or wheezing.

Patient

So what can I eat then?

You can eat foods that are mild, moist, soft and easy to swallow. You should also eat foods that are rich in protein, iron, vitamin C, and antioxidants as they can help boost your immune system and heal your lungs.

Patient

Can you give me some examples of such foods?

Sure, Some examples are eggs, lean meat, fish, beans, nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables, oats, rice and honey. You can also add some herbs or spices that are beneficial for your lungs or throat such as ginger, garlic, turmeric, mint or cinnamon.

Patient

I see, Thank you for the suggestions. I’ll try to follow them as much as possible.

You’re welcome. I hope you enjoy your food and feel better soon. Well then I’ll leave you to rest now. But before I go, let me remind you that, if you experience any problems or difficulties with your oxygen therapy or anything else related to your health, please don’t hesitate to call me or the community health care any time. We are always ready to assist you.
