Heart failure is the leading cause of hospital admissions in the United States today. Healthcare costs are astronomical, and statistics indicate that an increasing number of patients are diagnosed with heart failure every year. Morbidity and mortality are directly related to early recognition, intervention, prevention of complications, and patient education. The nurse is a key component in the successful management of this disorder. This course describes the significance, incidence, etiology, and physiology of heart failure. It also identifies the clinical manifestations and diagnostic findings that are associated with each type of heart failure. Finally, the course explains medical interventions for and nursing management of heart failure. This activity is intended for nurses.

The Hispanic population is projected to nearly triple, from 46.7 million to 132.8 million during the 2008-2050 period. Its share of the nation’s total population is projected to double, from 15 percent to 30 percent. Thus, nearly one in three U.S. residents would be Hispanic. The non-Hispanic, single-race white population is projected to be only slightly larger in 2050 (203.3 million) than in 2008 (199.8 million). (Resource 7). These statistics help paint a portrait of the country’s Hispanic population in the not-too-distant future, which will require healthcare organizations and professionals to fundamentally change how they function. The healthcare field is currently feeling the impact of the Hispanic community’s growth, and this warrants a thorough understanding of Hispanic cultures and people Please note: Completing this course does not authorize you to add any skill discussed in the content to your practice if this function is not included in your current scope of practice.

The immediate recovery period after childbirth begins with the delivery of the placenta and lasts until the new mother's vital signs are stable. This course reviews various factors that affect uterine muscle tone during the immediate recovery period and make the patient at risk for bleeding. The patient's obstetric history and her current labor and delivery experience, including such factors as distension of the uterus during pregnancy, a prolonged labor, and the retention of placental fragments, can cause uterine atony. Atony can prevent the uterus from contracting and cause excessive vaginal bleeding. Clinical care during the immediate recovery period involves the use of interventions that help minimize blood loss. These interventions include administering an IV infusion of oxytocin (Pitocin), massaging the uterine fundus, expressing blood clots, eliminating bladder distension, and examining the patient for placental fragments, lacerations, and hematomas. This activity is intended for nurses.
