Download and read online Prioritization Delegation and Assignment in PDF and EPUB Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment: Practice Exercises for the NCLEX® Examination is the only review book on the market with a focus on prioritization and management of care-just like the current NCLEX Examination itself! The workbook's unique approach establishes your foundational knowledge and then provides exercises of increasing difficulty to help you build confidence in your prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment skills. It offers unique preparation for the NCLEX Examination and effectively equips you to practice in today's fast-paced healthcare environment. UNIQUE! Emphasis on the NCLEX Management-of-Care Focus: LaCharity is the only workbook available that focuses on the NCLEX Exam's management-of-care focus No other book on the market addresses the heavy management-of-care emphasis - consisting of prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment - of the current NCLEX Examination (17-23% of the 2013 NCLEX-RN Exam). Graduating seniors report that LaCharity has been invaluable in preparing them to pass the NCLEX Exam and enter into practice. UNIQUE! Three-Part Organization: The book consists of three parts, each of which builds on the previous one: . Part 1: Introduction; Part 2: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Common Health Scenarios; Part 3: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Complex Health Scenarios. This organization establishes foundational knowledge and then provides exercises of increasing difficulty to help students build confidence in their prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment skills. It also helps students move from passing the NCLEX-RN Exam to "hitting the ground running" as they transition into clinical practice. Part 1: Introduction: Part 1, consisting of a chapter by delegation expert Ruth Hansten, provides guidelines for prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment decisions. The Introduction provides a concise, practical foundation on which Parts 2 and 3 build. Part 2: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Common Health Scenarios: Organized by body system, the chapters in Part 2 begin to give students practice in applying the principles from Part 1 to relatively straightforward scenarios involving single patients or simple patient assignments. Straightforward NCLEX-style multiple-choice, multiple-select, ordering, and short-answer questions help students develop and build confidence in prioritization, delegation, and patient assignment skills while working within the confines of relatively simple health scenarios. Part 3: Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment in Complex Health Scenarios: Unfolding cases in Part 3 gradually immerse students in realistically complex clinical situations involving patients with complicated health problems or challenging assignment issues. These unfolding cases build on the skills learned in Part 2 to equip students to make sound decisions in realistic, complex health scenarios involving complicated health problems and/or challenging patient assignment decisions. The "unfolding" nature of each case realistically demonstrates the progression of typical health scenarios and helps students learn to "think like nurses" by developing what Benner (2010) calls "clinical imagination." Answer Key: The in-depth Answer Key at the back of the book provides not only the correct answer but also a detailed rationale and an indication of the focus of the question, whether prioritization, delegation, supervision, or patient assignment. Detailed rationales encourage formative assessment, in which students learn as much from answering incorrectly as they do from answering correctly. Expanded content focus to include psychiatric/mental health, OB/maternity, and pediatrics along with med-surg areas New chapters on infection control and obstetrics

Download and read online Understanding Electrocardiography in PDF and EPUB Covering all aspects of electrocardiography, this comprehensive resource helps readers picture the mechanisms of arrhythmias, their ECG patterns, and the options immediately available - as well as those available for a cure. Illustrations and descriptions help the reader visualize and retain knowledge on the mechanisms of cardiac rhythms to pave the way for a systematic approach to ECG recognition and emergency response. This new, eighth edition guarantees the best possible patient outcomes by providing complete coverage - from step-by-step instruction to the more advanced concepts of ECG monitoring. New chapters have been added on The Athlete's ECG, In-Hospital Ischemia Monitoring, and Brugada Syndrome. Clear, consistent writing and organization are featured throughout. The mechanisms of cardiac rhythms are explained and illustrated for easier comprehension. Knowledge builds logically from mechanisms of arrhythmias, axis, and normal rhythms, to arrhythmia recognition. Pediatric implications are provided for appropriate arrhythmias. Differential diagnoses for arrhythmias are provided to cover all the possibilities of the patient's clinical status. A consulting board made up of internationally known experts in ECG recognition assures the content is as accurate and up-to-date as possible. Revised and updated chapters include new information regarding mechanisms, risks, diagnosis, therapy, and cures - changing the way patients with arrhythmias and myocardial infarction are managed. The chapter on Congenital Long QT syndrome has been thoroughly revised with new information on the recognition of this inherited disease as well as its precipitating circumstances. The Acquired Long QT syndrome chapter has been thoroughly revised to describe this life-threatening arrhythmia and list all of the non-cardiac drugs that are now known to cause it. The Atrial Flutter chapter has been completely revised to incorporate new diagnostic techniques and improvements in acute and long-term management. A new chapter on Brugada Syndrome (Chapter 27) teaches early identification and treatment of those at risk of sudden death from this dangerous ECG pattern. A new Athlete's ECG chapter (Chapter 20) describes how intense physical training is associated with ECG patterns that are a consequence of physiologic adaptations of the heart. A new chapter on In-Hospital Ischemia Monitoring (Chapter 31) measures the patient's response to therapy and provides an important determinant for survival from myocardial infarction and ischemia.
