Nursing - Emergency Care
These view-at-home videos allow nurses to experience life-threatening emergency situations before actually encountering them on the job. Each video offers a full half hour of uninterrupted instruction in vitally important procedures and techniques. Nurses see emergency techniques expertly performed in true-to-life situations and vicariously take part in interventions. To enhance understanding, computer graphics show what happens to the patient physiologically as specific emergencies occur. Close-up photography and succinct narration provide clear instructions on how to recognize signs and symptoms and how to intervene in an emergency. Each video is accompanied by a review booklet that includes a handy video index so nurses can immediately locate any part of the tape they wish to review.
Includes pathophysiology, risk factors, causes, assessment, nursing interventions, and medical treatment for patients with tonic-clonic seizure, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and automatic dysreflexia.
