This course discusses the role of the emergency nurse in the procurement of organs and tissues for transplantation and in the care of patients with post-transplantation emergencies. Since the first kidney transplant in 1954, advances in transplantation science have been numerous, and organ or tissue transplantation is now the preferred treatment for several conditions such as organ failure or infection. It is no wonder that organ donation is called the gift of life. As an emergency nurse, you play a key role in the identification and management of potential organ donors. You must understand the criteria for potential donors as well as the consent process for procurement. As the number of transplants increases, it is becoming more common for patients with post-transplantation emergencies to seek care in the emergency department. (68 minutes)

Orthopedic conditions can be ongoing conditions or recent injuries. The emergency nurse carries out key subjective and objective assessments for patients with orthopedic emergencies. Pertinent nursing diagnoses will be generated through these assessments. As part of these assessments, the nurse will categorize patients according to a 5-level triage system, reach a nursing diagnosis, and maintain documentation. (61 minutes)

Neurological emergencies usually involve head injury or stroke, both of which can be life threatening. Close subjective and objective assessment of a patient with neurological illness or injury is crucial. Intervention is often required to avoid or reverse increasing intracranial pressure. Proper documentation is also a critical part of the emergency nurse's role. Since neurological injury or illness can alter lives significantly, the care and education of the patient and his or her family are extremely important.

Pain is a multifaceted phenomenon that has both physiologic and psychologic components. In this course, you will learn about the history of pain management and the role of neurotransmitters in that history. You will differentiate the two general categories of pain and the three types of acute pain as well as describe the physiology of pain. You will also be able to recognize caregiver bias in pain management, list pain-reducing measures, and identify patient rights to pain management. Finally, because pain can impair the healing process, you will learn how controlling pain should be a primary concern in emergency departments. (87 minutes)

Pain is perhaps the first word that comes to mind when the thought of childbirth arises. It is only fairly recently that management of this pain has been ''allowed.'' Even up until the 1960s, ''twilight sleep'' was considered successful pain management: Women still experienced the pain of labor, but they simply didn't remember it. As women demanded greater control over the childbirth experience, childbirth education was born. It was here that women and their coaches learned comfort measures that allowed them more control. These measures can be used alone or in conjunction with some of the pharmacologic pain measures. This course includes a discussion of the nonpharmacologic comfort measures along with information about the opioid analgesics. (82 minutes)

When you give an injection to a patient, do you feel comfortable with the administration technique that you are using? This course reviews parenteral techniques for administering medications. When using such techniques, clinicians administer medications into the bloodstream through a route other than the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Medications are injected intradermally (ID), subcutaneously (SC), intramuscularly (IM), or intravenously (IV). The Joint Commission and the Institute of Safe Medication Practices have identified many types medication orders that are prone to misinterpretation and error and are now listed on a 'prohibited abbreviations' list.

Congestive heart failure (CHF) and hypertension are two conditions that are prevalent in the United States; the latter afflicts 58 million U.S. residents. Individuals often have both conditions. In order to understand how the drugs used to treat these conditions work, it is important to understand the role of the kidneys in maintaining fluid balance and the effects involved in the autonomic nervous system's response to CHF. In this course, you will become familiar with both of these processes and learn about the characteristics of the drugs that are used to treat CHF and hypertension.

Infants and children should have routine head and neck assessments. During an assessment, you should examine the skull's symmetry, fontanels, and sutures as well as the condition of the trachea and thyroid in the neck. You should also inspect the infant's or child's external ear and the tympanic membrane. An important part of the auditory system assessment is testing for hearing loss, including conductive and sensorineural hearing loss. You should know how to assess hearing loss because administering hearing loss tests is a nursing responsibility in clinics and elementary schools. You will complete the head and neck assessment by examining the patient's eyes, nose, and throat. Finally, you will learn how to recognize normal and abnormal findings when conducting a head and neck assessment.
