Infections of the upper respiratory tract are very common in children. The nurse working with children needs to understand the different disease processes of the upper respiratory tract, including the etiology, signs and symptoms upon presentation, effective treatment measures, and any special nursing considerations for each infection. Nurses must have a clear understanding of respiratory infections in order to educate parents in the effective care of their children. This course will assist you in understanding the common disease processes in the respiratory systems of children.

Critical illness has a profound impact on the family unit. A health crisis disrupts normal family roles, responsibilities, and routines. It stresses the patient as well as each individual family member and the family unit as a whole. The impact of critical illness on the family depends upon many characteristics, such as personality, coping style, and perception of illness. Regardless of the type of critical illness, there are five basic categories of needs families have when a member is facing a critical illness. This course will provide background information on assessment of the family member's perceptions of their loved ones critical illness, the needs of family members when facing a critical illness within the family, and interventions to help meet family needs.

Monitoring a child's physical growth and mental and social development is a component of every pediatric visit. Even though growth is orderly and systematic, there can be wide individual differences in growth rates among children due to multiple factors. You, as a nurse, must be able to quickly recognize any deviations from normal development to help prevent developmental problems. In order to do this, you need a comprehensive understanding of the processes of growth and development in children. (61 minutes)

Human bodies maintain homeostasis through a variety of interrelated physiologic mechanisms. When there is a change in blood pressure secondary to trauma, heart failure, or chronic hypertension, human bodies respond accordingly. Unfortunately, chronic hypertension has become one of the most common chronic illnesses in the United States. Patients with high blood pressure are usually treated with thiazide diuretics alone or in combination with angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and calcium channel blockers. In this course, you will first look at the body's physiologic responses to a change in blood pressure. It is important to understand the pharmacokinetics of drugs that are used to inhibit specific steps of the body's response systems. You will then study ACE inhibitors and calcium channel blockers, focusing on their mechanisms of action, therapeutic advantages, and side effects. The net effect of these drugs is to decrease peripheral vascular resistance, thereby decreasing blood pressure. (61 minutes)

The goal of this course is to prepare you to deal with the complexities encountered when caring for the patient with thyroid abnormalities such as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Hyperthyroidism (thyrotoxicosis) occurs when the thyroid produces too much or too little (or both) thyroxine (T4) as the body needs. Hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, develops when the thyroid gland fails to produce or secrete as much thyroxine (T4) as the body needs. These disorders are characterized by either elevated or decreased levels of thyroid hormones, resulting in signs and symptoms of an elevated or decreased metabolic rate. Hyperthyroidism is most common in women over age 60, and it is experienced by women more than men. Hypothyroidism is twice as common in women and occurs mostly in middle age women. After describing the normal anatomy and physiology of the thyroid gland, this course explains the etiology of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism and how to assess the patient with these conditions.

This course will introduce you to the subjective and objective assessments you will perform as an ED nurse when treating a patient who has been poisoned. Although the cause of a poisoning is sometimes unknown, most poisonings involve a patient's toxic reaction to substances in household products and over-the-counter or prescription medications. Other toxicologic emergencies involve treating patients who have been bitten by a poisonous animal, such as a venomous snake or spider, or who have had contact with a toxic plant. For the cases that present to your ED, you will learn to properly document the patient's condition and treatment and assign an appropriate triage category. (65 minutes)

The development of trauma systems is based on the assumption that improved outcomes can be achieved when prehospital and hospital treatment is orchestrated to respond to the injury in a defined, standard way. The trauma system ensures that an injured individual moves through increasingly capable levels of care. (41 minutes)
