Maybe your instinct kicked in with a patient you cared for in the past. You knew something was ‘off’. But what was it? Have you always felt confident that you had done enough…
Have you ever been perplexed with symptom findings in your patient’s history or physical exam? If a laboratory test, 12-lead ECG, or arterial blood gas were ordered, would you be able to interpret the findings – without missing something important? Whether you have been in practice for decades or just a few years, picking up on the subtle clues from the patient can be a challenge to master. Without the skills to quickly identify concerns and initiate appropriate interventions, you could be putting your patient, and your license, at risk.
Watch nationally-recognized speaker, Dr. Paul Langlois, APN, PhD, CCRN, CCNS, CNRN, in this recording to gain powerful new clinical insights and critical thinking skills so you won’t need to feel uncertain or scared anymore. You will learn through exciting patient case studies, reinforced with helpful new clinical mnemonics. Finish this intense course with increased confidence in your ability to conduct differential symptom analysis, interpret the laboratory implications, skillfully read 12-lead ECGs, document your findings, and, ultimately, select the interventions to ensure the best outcomes for your patient. You will experience the dramatic changes in your own practice when you work your next shift!
