NRS 235 - Adult Health IV Critical Care
The student employs critical thinking skills to blend normal physiology, pharmacology, and pathophysiology in developing a plan of care for the critically ill adult patient. An emphasis is placed on the use of the empirical patterns of knowing to understand and develop the plan of care. The Human Patient Simulator will be used extensively in this course to demonstrate the effects and treatment of disease processes in critically ill patients. Various monitoring techniques for the critically ill patient, including hemodynamic monitoring and EKG interpretation, will be used.
