Several methods are used for calculating parenteral medication dosages, including the formula method, ratio and proportion method, and dimensional analysis method. It is very important for you to choose one method in which you are proficient and to consistently use this method. This will reduce the chance for dosage errors, which could cause injury or death. Medication mishaps can occur anywhere in the distribution system. The Joint Commission and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) http://ismp.org/ have identified many types medication orders that are prone to misinterpretation and error and are now listed on a “Do not use list” for abbreviations. These may change over time, so please access this link to the The Joint Commission pages to view the most current list of these ‘prohibited’ and “do not use’ abbreviations. http://www.jointcommission.org/about_us/about_the_joint_commission_main.aspx (53 minutes)

Oral medications are not always available in the strength or dosage prescribed. When the prescribed dosage is not available, you must calculate the amount of medication to be administered based on the available dosage. This course provides a review of basic math skills and presents three methods that can be used to calculate oral dosages: the formula method, ratio and proportion method, and dimensional analysis method. The course provides numerous examples that illustrate how each is applied. It is important for you to select one of these methods and to use it consistently rather than switch from one method to another. The Joint Commission and the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), have identified many types of medication orders that are prone to misinterpretation and are now listed on the "Do Not Use List" (The Joint Commission) and “ List of Error Prone Abbreviations, Symbols, and Dose Designations.” (67 minutes)

Neonates admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are always in a delicate situation. They need your help to survive in a world for which they are unprepared. This is even more true when the neonate in your care is at risk for, or has had, a seizure. The causes of seizures are numerous and often unclear. What is known, however, is that close monitoring of blood sugar and oxygen saturation levels is essential to protecting the neonate. In case a seizure does occur, there are several anticonvulsants that can help protect the neonate from further harm. This course describes the physiology, effects, types, signs, and etiology of neonatal seizures. It also explains care management of a neonate having a seizure. This activity is intended for nurses.

Injuries are the leading cause of death in children in the United States and represent a preventable cause of morbidity and mortality. Motor vehicle accidents are the most common type of death in children, and out of all childhood injuries, head trauma is the most common cause of death. Neurologic trauma can have a great effect on long-term quality of life and is responsible for a high degree of morbidity and mortality after a head injury. The nurse caring for the pediatric patient must be aware of the mechanism of injury in the head and spinal cord, and should be knowledgeable about medical and nursing considerations for care.

The caloric requirement for the newborn is higher than it will be at any later stage in life. The infant needs 115 Kcal/kg of body weight during the first 6 months, which is roughly three times the requirement for an adult. Nearly one half of the total energy expenditure of the newborn is accounted for by the newborns need to maintain his or her basal metabolic rate. A high basal metabolic rate is needed to regulate the infants body temperature, to support the rapid growth rate, and to sustain the elevated motor activity. Human milk and commercially prepared infant formulas provide 20 Kcal/oz. Protein, carbohydrates, and fats in breast milk or formulas meet most of the kilocalorie requirements of the newborn.
