Did you ever wonder why your patient with a myocardial infarction will have dyspnea?
Or, have a hard time explaining exactly how beta-blockers work?
Or, become confused about ejection fractions? Let alone, hemodynamics?
If you have a hard time explaining to your patients about which blood vessel perfuses what part of the heart, or why they have an arrhythmia, or how their heart failure is causing their kidney problems, then you need to go back to the basics with the help of a mentor who can really make the information easy and understandable.
Most of us learned our anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology in nursing school where we were focused primarily on passing the class. We memorized, we studied, but we quickly forgot.
You learn differently now. With years of nursing experience, your brain has learned to classify your professional information into “file folders” based on your clinical experiences. Now, when you go back to learn these concepts, your brain will put the information into the correct “folder” to use the next time you encounter a patient with that problem. In other words, you will retain the information now that you have a way to organize it.
Understanding the essential concepts of cardiac anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology will help you find patient complications faster and respond to them more appropriately. In addition:
You will communicate more effectively with physicians and your peers,
You will feel more confident,
You will provide safer and more effective care!
That is why I have put together a special program just for you entitled The Heart in Detail. This program will make you a better nurse!
The Heart in Detail contains:
The Heart Revealed The structure and function of components of the mechanical, endocrine and electrical systems of the heart.
It is a Pump, But Also So Much More Explore the hemodynamic mechanisms that make the heart respond to differing physical conditions.
Common Cardiac Conditions: How and Why They Upset the Balance Find out what is really going on during acute coronary syndrome, heart failure, and arrhythmias.
Less Common Cardiac Disorders: What Makes Them Tick? Discover the pathophysiologic mechanisms behind less common cardiac disorders such as pericarditis, valvular disease, and cardiomyopathy.
As you can see, you get an incredible amount of useful information that you can take back to the bedside and use immediately to improve your nursing care!
The Heart in Detail CD set includes files in three formats. Listen to the CDs on your CD player, load the audio files onto your MP3 player, or pop them into your computer to watch the audio/visual slide presentation.
In The Heart in Detail, you will get:
Four multiple-format CDs:
1. The Heart Revealed
2. It is a Pump, But Also So Much More
3. Common Cardiac Conditions: How and Why They Upset the Balance
4. Less Common Cardiac Disorders: What Makes Them Tick?
