Coronary artery disease (CAD), also known as coronary atherosclerosis, is the leading cause of death in the industrialized Western world. Unfortunately, many patients do not seek medical attention until clinical manifestations are noticed. An estimated 700,000 people are hospitalized with the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (MI) each year, and approximately 400,000 U.S. residents die from CAD or its complications annually. These statistics could be lowered with proper medical intervention. In most cases, early diagnosis and treatment can help with the management of CAD and prevent lethal clinical manifestations. This course describes the risk factors, pathophysiologic changes, and clinical manifestations associated with CAD. It also identifies diagnostic tests and nursing care for the disease. This activity is intended for nurses.

Medication administration in the critical care unit is a nursing skill that must be practiced accurately. Most patients in a critical care setting have numerous medications and some also have continuous IV drips. Orders may be written as a dose per body weight or body surface area (BSA) and must be calculated with extreme accuracy. Enteral feedings are at times given to support the nutritional needs of the patient. Calculations of enteral feeds must be completed to mix the appropriate strength. It is your responsibility to calculate and administer the correct dose to the patient. 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. These may change over time, so please access this link to view the most current list of these 'prohibited' and 'do not use' abbreviations. http://www.jointcommission.org/.

Medications are frequently given via the parenteral route, which bypasses the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. Specifically, this is done by injection. When a prescribed dosage is ordered, the nurse often uses calculations to determine how much medication should be injected to deliver the dosage. This course presents common abbreviations used in the administration of parenteral medications, methods for calculating dosages, and special considerations when the prescribed medication is insulin. It also presents procedures for reconstituting a powdered medication. 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 ‘New Confused Drug Name List’ (The ISMP).

This course describes the personality disorders that are categorized in the Dramatic and Emotional Personality Cluster. The characteristics and etiology of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Histrionic Personality Disorder, and Antisocial Personality Disorder are explored in this event. The common theme of these personality disorders is the inability to establish and maintain close interpersonal relationships. An individual with one of these personality disorders exhibits labile mood, for example, going from laughter to tears in seconds. Behavior often appears calculated or cunning to accomplish a goal, such as maintaining the attention of others or gaining power or domination over others. (79 minutes)

Excretion is the fourth and final mechanism of pharmacokinetics. Although the body eliminates drugs and other substances in a variety of ways, this course focuses on two major processes: hepatic excretion and renal excretion. The course also covers the concepts of drug half-life and first and zero order kinetics. These concepts are integral to understanding excretion, because they help identify the rate at which a drug is eliminated from the body. This activity is intended for nurses.

After the body absorbs and disperses a drug, the drug must be metabolized. This process takes place in two steps. Phase I metabolism, which involves metabolism by oxidation, reduction, and hydrolysis, stops the action of a drug. Phase II metabolism, or metabolism by conjugation, involves adding a chemical substance to a drug to limit its distribution. Efficacy and potency are factors that measure the effectiveness of a drug and the amount needed to produce the desired result, respectively. After covering these topics, this course explains therapeutic index (Ti). This index describes the relative safety of a drug, using a ratio of its effective dose and its lethal dose. Finally, this course describes the action of drugs as enzyme inhibitors and explains how they can block endogenous transmitters in four different ways. This activity is intended for nurses.

In this course, you will discuss the ECG lead system, including 12 and 18 lead systems. You will explore heart complications such as ischemia, injury, and infarct, and the role the ECG interpretation plays in their detection. This course will also discuss the importance of lead placement on accurate ECG interpretation. You will compare right and left bundle branch blocks, and explore how determining the role of axis deviation can help you to differentiate between ventricular ectopy, aberrant cardiac rhythms, and the severity of a bundle branch block. Finally, you will discuss cardiopulmonary arrest, near death experiences, and the nursing interventions for patients who have these experiences.

Emergency documentation is an essential form of communication regarding a patient's condition and treatment. Other healthcare providers refer to the documentation to determine a patient's presenting condition, interventions, medications, and response to care. Documentation also helps nurses meet their professional responsibilities and provides legal protection proving that appropriate care was given. Done properly, it helps nurses stay in compliance with regulatory standards, and it provides crucial evidence affecting reimbursement. This course reviews the reasons nurses need to document, provides general guidelines for quality documentation, and introduces different kinds of documentation formats.
