The lab work you have been anxiously waiting for, comes back normal. That wasn’t what you expected... But now what?
You could just as easily be assigned to care for a patient with a change in blood gases, renal failure, liver functions, coagulation concerns, early sepsis or a diabetes crisis during your next shift. Are you confident in your interpretation of the results? What about those subtle lab shifts that might make you wonder what lies ahead for the patient?
The blood results may just be the tip of the iceberg. A critical event could be on the horizon, if you don’t initiate the appropriate interventions. This opportunity will elevate your lab analysis critical thinking to detect the hidden clues from the results and anticipate your patient’s presentation as the values deteriorate or improve.
This video-based training from a nationally recognized critical care/emergency expert will provide you the advanced skills, proven strategies and understanding you need NOW. This is one training that you will immediately put to use. Day in and day out with the patients you care for!
