You report your patient is stable, then they go into shock.
You missed something…are you prepared to defend your actions and your license?
You know the basics — now it’s time to master the details.
- Do you wonder why patients who suffer respiratory arrest often complain of anxiety as much as 8 hours before they decompensate?
- Do you have a hard time explaining how certain drugs can cause renal dysfunction?
- Do you get confused about the normal inflammatory response process?
- Do you lack the confidence to explain the “whys” to patients and families — why this medication, why that test, why those symptoms?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, this is the course for you!
You care for a variety of complex patients each day — you need to be able to identify changes in their symptoms early and respond appropriately to avoid life-threatening complications. Even seasoned nurses remain confused about these conditions, feel insecure in their assessments, and wonder if the action they took was the best way to respond.
This comprehensive online video course will take you to the expert level. By building your knowledge step by step, you’ll finally have the specialized clinical skills and strategies to respond confidently and effectively for your patients’ well-being.
- Communicate more effectively with physicians and your peers.
- Feel more confident.
- Provide safer and more effective care!
Here’s what you’ll learn in this comprehensive online course:
The Lungs in Detail with Angelica F. Dizon, MD, BSN, MBA-HCM, RN
Have you ever wondered why:
- Patients who suffer respiratory arrest often complain of anxiety as much as 8 hours before they decompensate?
- Pulse oximetry can be normal when your patient is having difficulty breathing?
- Abnormal breath sounds form and what they mean?
If you have a hard time explaining to your patients about how a pulmonary embolism affects lung function or why some asthmatics can become hypoxic and stop breathing, then you need to go back to the basics with the help of a mentor who can really make the information easy and understandable.
Most of us learned our anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology in school where we were focused primarily on passing the class. We memorized, we studied, but we quickly forgot.
Understanding the essential concepts of pulmonary anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology will help you find patient complications faster and respond to them more appropriately.
- THE LUNG REVEALED — Examine the structure and function of the components of the lungs, airways and endocrine controls that affect pulmonary function.
- OXYGEN DELIVERY AND CONSUMPTION — Find out how the lung controls acid/base balance and the mechanisms that protect the body from hypoxic injury.
- COMMON PULMONARY CONDITIONS — Find out what is really going on during acute pulmonary edema, COPD, and pulmonary embolism.
- LESS COMMON PULMONARY DISORDERS — Discover the pathophysiologic mechanisms behind less common pulmonary disorders such as ARDS, hospital-acquired pneumonia, and pulmonary hypertension.
The Kidneys in Detail with Carla J. Moschella, MS, PA-C, RDN
Have you ever wondered:
- What the serum osmolality means to your patient?
- How to anticipate electrolyte disorders?
- When do drugs and IV dye affect renal function?
If you are like many other healthcare professionals, you might find fluids and electrolytes to be intimidating; renal function to be mysterious, and concepts like osmolality to be downright confusing. But, wait…now there’s hope!
In The Kidneys in Detail Carla J. Moschella, MS, PA-C, RDN, explains the complexities of fluids and electrolytes in simple terms that you will be able to understand and gives you practical ways to use the information at the bedside with your next patient.
If you have a hard time explaining to your patients about why their potassium is low for the third day in a row, or how certain drugs can cause renal dysfunction, or why it is important that you measure intake and output, then you need to go back to the basics with the help of a mentor who can really make the information easy and understandable.
- THE KIDNEYS REVEALED — The structure and function of components of the mechanical and hormonal systems of the kidneys.
- RENAL DYSFUNCTION — What happens to cause decreased renal function and why.
- ELECTROLYTES AND THE KIDNEYS — Find out why your patient’s electrolytes are out of range and what you can do about it.
- KIDNEYS AND FLUIDS: THE BALANCING ACT — Discover how the kidneys act to maintain fluid balance and osmolality; and how to find problems before they occur.
The Immune System in Detail with Angelica Dizon, MD, BSN, MBA-HCM, RN
If you could master only one concept during your career, it should be the inflammatory response.
Do you care for patients with:
- Cardiac disorders?
- Respiratory disorders?
- Gastrointestinal disorders?
- Neurological disorders?
- Infection, cancer, or immunosuppression?
Inflammation is responsible for many of the disease processes that we treat; it is the primary response for healing and protecting the body from injury. In order to provide extraordinary care for your patients, you must understand the inflammatory response.
Although the inflammatory response is incredibly complex, the results of inflammation can be broken down into three major events: 1) vasodilation, 2) capillary permeability, and 3) clotting. The results of these events are what cause the problems we associate with many different conditions such as septic shock, ARDS, atherosclerosis, and many others. But, the lack of a response can be just as devastating — exposing the body to a myriad of deadly infections.
Learn how to manage patients with inflammation, and those whose inflammatory response is inhibited, by mastering the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of inflammatory and immune responses.
If you’ve had trouble with these concepts in the past, then this is the program for you! You will get the detail you need — explained at a level that you will fully understand.
- THE IMMUNE SYSTEM REVEALED — Explore the inner workings of the immune system, like you’ve never heard it before!
- INFLAMMATION: THE CENTER OF ATTENTION — How the inflammatory response works and what you can do to assess and treat complications.
- INFLAMMATION OUT OF CONTROL — Sepsis, allergies, organ rejection, and anaphylactic reactions: the symptoms and how to treat the complications.
- COMMON IMMUNE DISORDERS — Treat and Prevent Autoimmune disease, HIV, and antibiotic resistant bacteria.
