In this course, you will evaluate pulmonary edema. You will identify the etiologies and pathophysiology of pulmonary edema, with a focus on the treatment of pulmonary edema due to left-ventricular heart failure. You will also evaluate acute (or adult) respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which is a devastating and often fatal inflammation of the lungs that usually occurs in conjunction with a serious medical condition. You will then identify your role in the care of patients experiencing pulmonary edema or ARDS.

During pulmonary embolism, a mass called an embolus occludes blood flow to the lungs. Often, an embolus is a blood clot or thrombus, but it can also be made of another particulate such as a lipid or amniotic fluid. This course explains the signs of pulmonary embolism and describes the clinical care management practices for a patient with this condition. A case study also allows you to put into practice what you have learned about pulmonary embolism. Any injury, whether intentional or accidental, that affects the chest wall can cause significant damage to the lung tissue, resulting in lung collapse and failed ventilation. These disorders can contribute to cardiac failure through compression of cardiac structures or great vessels and the subsequent decrease in cardiac output. This course introduces you to the disorders causing chest trauma, assessment findings for chest trauma disorders, and interventions used to care for patients with pneumothorax. (83 minutes)

The use of neuromuscular blockade (NMB) is a focused, organized intervention. In this course, you will learn about the two types of neuromuscular blocking drugs (NMBDs), their indications and contraindications, adverse reactions, and the need for continual monitoring of the patient before, during, and after performing rapid sequence induction (RSI). You will also examine the preparation this procedure requires and the equipment, medications, and interventions that are needed. You will learn to recognize the issues surrounding the presence or the absence of the patients family and the stress the patient undergoes during resuscitation. (61 minutes)

After delivering her baby, a new mother will experience many changes in her daily life. Before the new mother is discharged from the healthcare facility, the postpartum nurse should inform her about what she may experience in the months after delivery. The nurse must also provide information about self-care measures that will help the new mother eventually resume her normal activities. Topics that are covered in this course include proper nutrition, rest and exercise, postpartum blues and depression, resumption of sexual activities, and use of contraception. (90 minutes)

Safety has been identified as a basic human need. Yet, safety hazards exist in all healthcare settings. Patients can be injured through accidents and incidents that are often preventable, such as fires and oxygen accidents. Other factors affecting patient safety include the patient's illness or injury, age, mental status, and potential for falls. Unlicensed assistive personnel (UAPs) must recognize hazards within the healthcare setting, potential for injury, and preventive measures to minimize patient injury. They must also know how to transport patients to safety during a disaster. This course outlines several aspects of patient safety in the healthcare setting.

This course covers secondary survey assessment techniques as well as special considerations to be aware of when conducting a secondary survey. After a primary survey has been completed and the appropriate interventions have been administered, a secondary survey is conducted. A secondary survey consists of two basic components: assessing the patient's overall physical health and obtaining the patient's health history. This course outlines the procedures taken to initiate a secondary survey, such as vital signs assessment and pain mitigation. It also describes the process for obtaining a patient health history, performing a head-to-toe survey, and recognizing specific population considerations.

Seizures increase the metabolic needs of the brain, causing an elevation in the cerebral blood flow and volume that raises the intracranial pressure. For this reason, an important part of critical care nursing includes the prevention and management of seizures. This course discusses seizure etiology and the categories and phases of seizures. It details the different types of seizures, including partial, generalized, metabolic, and status epilepticus. The course also covers interventions for patients experiencing seizures.

This course will describe the care of patients with general medical conditions, including fatigue and malaise, Reye's syndrome, gout, fever, allergic reaction, fluid and electrolyte emergencies, coma, and hematologic emergencies. These conditions can be acute, chronic, and even life threatening. Several of these conditions have very specific treatment recommendations with which a nurse should be familiar. For some of these conditions, only symptomatic care is available. Astute assessment skills are essential when gathering the history, signs, and symptoms to determine the cause and provide appropriate treatment and care.

This course provides a comprehensive overview of two common multisystem problems occurring in the intermediate-care neonate. The first, sepsis, is a consideration for the at-risk premature neonate residing in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). This course reviews the development of the immune system, sources of infection, and risk factors. It also explores management strategies for sepsis, including antibiotic therapy, immunotherapy, and multisystem support. The course then covers the second common multisystem problem, neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), which stems from maternal drug abuse.

You will discover that many different conditions can result in shock, including significant hemorrhage, spinal cord trauma, infections, and exposure to antigens. Shock can lead to multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) and death.
