Cirrhosis of the Liver Nursing Care Management Symptoms NCLEX
 
34:23
Cirrhosis of the liver nursing NCLEX review over the symptoms, nursing care/management, pathophysiology, complications, and treatments. Cirrhosis is a liver disease where liver cells become extremely damaged due to long-term/severe damage. This damage can be from a viral infection (Hepatitis B or C), heavy alcohol consumption, obesity, hyperlipidemia, bile duct problem, autoimmune etc. These damaged liver cells are replaced with fibrous tissue, and this leads to scarring of the liver. The role of the liver is to filter the blood and perform the following functions to it: metabolizing, detoxifying, storing, producing etc. When liver cells are damaged these processes do not happen. Complications of cirrhosis include: portal hypertension, splenomegaly, ascites, jaundice, hepatic encephalopathy, esophageal varices etc. All of these conditions are discussed in depth in the video. During the early stages of cirrhosis the patient may be asymptomatic, however, in the late stages the patient will have signs and symptoms that include: asterixis, fetor hepaticus, jaundice, reduced platelets and white blood cells, spider angiomas, ascites, gynecomastia, increase ammonia level etc. Nursing interventions for cirrhosis include monitoring for bleeding, abnormal glucose levels, implementing a proper diet: if patient has confusion (hepatic encephalopathy) they need a low protein diet, however, if patient isn't confused they need a high lean protein diet, low sodium, fluid restriction, assessing for rupture of varices, administering lactulose etc. Treatment for cirrhosis includes a liver transplant and medications such as diuretics, blood products, vitamin K, beta blocker or nitrates. In addition to a paracentesis. which helps remove fluid from the abdomen, if ascites is present.

Iron Deficiency Anemia Treatment, Nursing, Pathophysiology, Symptoms w/ Nursing Interventions
 
12:52
Iron-deficiency anemia treatment, nursing interventions, pathophysiology, and symptoms NCLEX review lecture. Iron deficiency anemia is a type of anemia caused by low iron levels in the body. Anemia is a condition where there is a low amount of red blood cells or hemoglobin in the body. Red blood cells and hemoglobin are responsible for the transport of oxygen throughout the body to the tissues and organs. Iron is responsible for making hemoglobin. When iron levels are low in the body red blood cells and hemoglobin do not work properly which leads the patient to feel symptoms of lethargy, pallor, tachycardia, weird food cravings (ice, clay, dirt), inflammation of the tongue (glossitis), nail changes such as koilonychia (spoon-shape of the nails) etc. Treatment for iron-deficiency anemia includes iron supplementation, increasing iron in the diet with foods rich in iron (such as egg yolks, red meats, poultry, shellfish, fish, legumes, seeds etc), and prevention. The causes of iron-deficiency anemia include poor intake of iron (as with pregnancy, vegetarian diet, or malnourishment), blood loss (GI bleed, menstruation), or absorption issues (as with Celiac disease, GI surgery etc). It is diagnosed with complete blood count (CBC), iron level, or blood smear to assess the RBC which may appear hypochromic (pale) and microcytic (small).

Medical vs. Nursing Diagnosis and Collaborative Problems: Know the difference and connection
 
05:42
As a nurse it is important to understand the difference between a medical diagnosis, a nursing diagnosis and a collaborative problem. ... A medical diagnosis identifies a specific disease or condition. In the hospital it is commonly simply referred to as the patient’s diagnosis. This diagnosis is made by a physician after they assess the patient’s history, signs and symptoms as well as conduct diagnostic tests as needed. The medical diagnosis will then be treated by the physician. You can check out the link below for more examples and information about specific medical diagnoses including signs, symptoms and diagnostic tests. A nursing diagnosis identifies a client’s response to their health that the nurse can manage. These diagnoses serve as the basis for the next steps in the nursing process which include planning, intervention and evaluation. Nursing diagnoses need to fall within the scope of what nurses are licensed to treat because nurses are accountable for outcomes related to these diagnoses. When the nurse assesses the patient, they use their clinical judgement to identify specific client problems and responses that are identified using standardised language from NANDA International. Using this standardised language is important for communication among nurses. It also has helped to promote research into client issues that were previously underexplored. A nursing diagnosis handbook will come in handy as you work through the process of turning your assessment data into a nursing diagnosis. For a current list of nursing diagnostic labels please see the link below this video. There are quite a few so we will talk more about how to formulate your nursing diagnoses in the next video. In short - A medical diagnosis identifies a disease that the physician treats. A nursing diagnosis identifies an actual or potential response to a disease or situation that the nurse focuses on. For example, a patient admitted with a medical diagnosis of breast cancer may have a nursing diagnosis of disturbed body image among others. The physician would be concerned with treating the medical diagnosis by ordering surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. The nurse would develop a plan with the patient to help them deal with any shame, embarrassment or guilt they are experiencing. The term “collaborative problem” is sometimes used in multiple ways so be sure to clarify what your teacher means if they ask you to identify or discuss a collaborative problem. A nursing diagnosis may have an intervention that requires collaboration. For example, to manage acute pain with medication it first needs to be prescribed. The diagnosis of acute pain is still a nursing diagnosis. Some textbooks define a collaborative problem as an issue that another discipline has identified that requires a nursing intervention. This issue would then be placed on the interdisciplinary care plan. Chances are that if you are asked to write a collaborative problem statement your teacher is referring to an RC diagnosis. Carpenito’s nursing diagnosis handbook shows how to place a diagnostic label on complications that nurses cannot treat independently. Carpenito defines Collaborative problems as potential complications of a client’s condition that a nurse cannot treat independently. They will probably occur with a specific disease, injury or treatment. Just like the name suggests, collaborative problems are treated collaboratively by both physicians and nurses working together, often in collaboration with other health care team members. In your nursing diagnosis handbook they may be listed under associated nursing diagnoses or in a separate section. Nurses work to prevent collaborative problems from developing. When collaborative problems exist nurses have the responsibility to monitor the patient’s status, intervene or get the physician to intervene when necessary and evaluate how effective interventions are. In short - Nurses cannot treat collaborative problems independently. They do however monitor for and attempt to prevent these potential complications. If the nurse can provide the primary treatment for a complication it is a nursing diagnosis.

Cannot wait to see you again very soon! xoxo - Caroline Question Number 1: The client in the moderate stage of Alzheimer’s disease is exhibiting symptoms of confusion. The home care nurse should do the following appropriate interventions, except: A. Furnish the client’s room with pictures of her family and familiar possessions, remove hazardous items B. Orient the client to the environment C. Place the client in a secluded area where she can be alone and would facilitate independence D. Call the client by name, identify self and wait for a response The correct choice is Answer C. The confused client should be placed in a less stressful environment and should be reassured and reoriented to her current situation; leaving her alone in a secluded environment could precipitate agitation. This Moderate Stage or middle stage is typically the longest which can last for many years. In this stage, damage in the brain may include areas that control, reasoning, language, sensory processing and conscious thought. The client may require a greater level of care and symptoms may become obvious to others.

Hyperparathyroidism Nursing Symptoms Pathophysiology NCLEX | Parathyroid Hormone Gland Disorders
 
14:20
Hyperparathyroidism nursing review lecture of hyperparathyroidism symptoms, pathophysiology, causes, and nursing interventions. Hyperparathyroid is the excessive production of parathyroid hormone by the parathyroid gland. This parathyroid disorder leads to hypercalcemia and hypophosphatemia. Signs and symptoms of hyperparathyroidism include bone fractures, renal calcui, constipation, excessive urination, nausea, vomiting, epi-gastric pain, EKG changes (shorten QT interval) and lab values that reflect hypercalcemia and hypophosphatemia. Causes of this parathyroidism include primary hyperparathyroidism and secondary hyperparathyroidism. Primary hyperparathyroidism is caused by a malfunctioning parathyroid due to an adenoma, hyperplasia, or cancer. Secondary hyperparathyroidism is caused by a disease that affects the function of the parathyroid such as chronic kidney disease, hypocalcemia, and vitamin-d deficiency. Nursing interventions include monitoring vitals, straining urine for possible renal calcui, monitoring EKG, and administering medications as prescribed by the doctor. The goals of medication treatment in hyperparathyroidism are to decrease the calcium and PTH levels, and maintain hydration.

Peptic Ulcer Disease Nursing, Pathophysiology, Treatment | Gastric Ulcer vs Duodenal Ulcer Part 1
 
22:37
Peptic ulcer disease nursing lecture review on pathophysiology, treatment, symptoms, causes (h. pylori) and complications. Peptic ulcer disease is the formation of ulcers in the lining of the upper GI tract that affects mainly the mucosal lining of the stomach, duodenum, or esophagus. There are various types of peptic ulcers such as gastric ulcers which are located in the stomach and duodenal ulcers which are located in the duodenum. Gastric ulcer vs duodenal ulcer include the following characteristics: Patients who have gastric ulcers tend to experience pain with food intake (approximately 1-2 hours after a meal). While with duodenal ulcers, food tends to relieve pain. Therefore, the patient may have pain 3-4 hours after eating when the stomach is empty. In addition, duodenal ulcers can cause epigastric pain in the middle of the night while gastric ulcers do not. Patients with gastric ulcers describe the pain as dull or aching, while patients with duodenal ulcers describe the pain as gnawing. What causes peptic ulcer disease? The most common causes of PUD are an h. pylori infection or regular NSAID usage. Helicobacter pylori are spiral-shaped bacteria that invade the GI mucosa. They can live in the acidic conditions of the stomach because it secretes urease which breakdowns down urea and this produces ammonia which neutralizes the stomach's acid. H. pylori most likely spreads from consuming something contaminated with the bacteria as in fecal to oral or oral to oral transmission. Another cause is NSAIDs usage which breakdowns the defense system of the stomach's lining. NSAIDs work to decrease the production of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins allow us to feel pain, fever, or other types of inflammation. In addition, the stomach uses prostaglandins to keep the stomach protected by promoting the stomach cells to release mucous rich in bicarb, regulating acid amounts via parietal cells, and perfusion to stomach. When the defense system is altered it allows gastric acid to penetrate the lining and cause ulcer formation. Signs and symptoms of PUD include indigestion and epigastric pain that can be felt from the breastbone to the belly button. It is typically described as a gnawing, aching, or dull pain. Complications of peptic ulcer disease include: gastrointestinal bleeding, perforation which can lead to peritonitis, and obstruction of the pylorus which is a muscular section that connects the stomach and duodenum together and allows food to flow between these parts of the GI tract. Treatment of peptic ulcer disease includes: medications such as proton-pump inhibitors, histamine receptor blockers, antacids, muscosal healing drugs, antibiotics, bismuth salisalycylates, surgery such as gastric resection, vagotomy, or pyloroplasty.

Naegele's Rule Example with Practice Questions for Maternity Nursing NCLEX Review (Nagele's Rule)
 
07:38
Naegele's rule example with practice questions for maternity nursing NCLEX review. This maternity lecture will help you learn how to calculate an estimated delivery date (EDD) using Nagele's Rule. Naegele's rule works best for women who have a 28 day cycle and is based on the typical 280 day gestation (40 weeks) period. The date calculated with Naegele's Rule is just an estimate for expected delivery date. When solving for an EDD with Nagele's Rule it is important to remember the months that have 30 (thirty) days vs. 31 (thirty-one) days, and of course, February has 28 days. Always give February 28 days (regardless of leap year) to avoid confusion. The months with 30 days are September, April, June, and November while the other months are 31 days. Don't forget to take the practice quizzes that will test you on Nagele's Rule.

Long Term Care Simplified Part 1
 
06:56
Often times when someone hears long term care they think of a nursing home. They develop a sort of tunnel vision and, due to some inherent fear of nursing homes, close off their ears to the possibilities before them. Don't be the type of caregiver that limits your choices. When you do that you'll only cause undue stress on your health, productivity and finances down the road. What is long term care? While it's true that a nursing home is one form of this type of care system, it is not the be all and end all of long term care. Long term care is a form of elder care. It's a group of services that are provided through multiple channels other than a nursing home. Long term care is not strictly medical care as some think. Picture long term care as an umbrella. The majority of services under this umbrella of elder care are in fact nonmedical or custodial as it is sometimes referred to. These types of services may be helping someone to cook meals or keep house. The primary focus of this type of care is two fold. First the goal is to help the senior maintain their level of independence where they are right now at the beginning of needing long term care. The second goal is to help the elder reach their prior level of functioning following a life-changing event. This is a care system that takes over following an acute event in the elderly. An acute event is some incident that happens suddenly and causes the elderly person to have a sharp decline in their ability to function independently. This decline may be caused by multiple factors. A few examples of acute events leading to the need for long term care services may include A sudden onset of confusion due to an infection A traumatic fall with a broken hip A stroke A heart attack Basically any event that causes a person to require hospitalization or sudden intervention to resolve the problem is an acute event. Once the initial intervention has corrected the problem, such as surgery or medication, long term care takes over to help them to reach the previously mentioned goals of maintenance and rehabilitation. The length of service for long term care is really dependent upon the person and the problem. It may mean caring for the elderly for a few weeks to a few years. It's important to not limit yourself to just a nursing home as direct admission into a skilled nursing facility following hospitalization may increase the time that your loved one spends in a nursing home. Sometimes services may be needed even until the elderly person passes away years down the road.
