Understanding Hypertension: Treatment and Management

Price: $26.95  
Item # N1717  

Release Date: September 22, 2016

Expiration Date: September 30, 2019

 

Hypertension (HTN) is a common disease that affects millions of Americans without any warning. It is defined as a persistent elevated blood pressure and is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease, thus early detection is imperative. Increasing screening and diagnosis of HTN, and improving control of BP with appropriate treatment are important preventative measures to reduce CV morbidity and mortality. Therefore, a systematic understanding of the management of HTN is essential for advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) working in direct patient care to help further improve HTN control.

The purpose of this course is to increase the knowledge of APRNs on the diagnosis, counseling, and management of HTN. Management of treatment-resistant HTN is beyond the scope of this course. After completion of this course, APRNs will be able to select and implement appropriate first-line and add-on treatment for the management of HTN based on current evidence-based practice guidelines. They will be able to identify appropriate therapeutic goals based on stages of HTN and comorbidities. Additionally, they will be able to provide effective education and counseling on medication management and lifestyle modifications. As a result, these clinicians will be able to incorporate evidence-based strategies, tools, and patient resources into the workflow to enhance quality of care.

Fundamentals of Cardiovascular Nursing: Biology and Epidemiology

Price: $26.95 
Item # N1748  

Release Date: December 27, 2016

Expiration Date: December 31, 2019

 

This course provides nurses with foundational information to caring for patients with cardiovascular disease. This course can serve as a reference for nurses working in cardiovascular care areas or desiring to work in cardiovascular care. The curriculum begins with a review of cardiovascular anatomy and physiology. Cardiac hemodynamic measurements and the principles of oxygen transport are discussed, as well as the burden of cardiovascular disease on the general population.  Nursing application points in the clinical setting are highlighted throughout the text to assist in identifying key issues in the care of patients with cardiovascular disease.

Heightened awareness among clinicians and patients is the first step toward impacting cardiovascular disease. Nurses with comprehensive knowledge of cardiovascular anatomy and physiology have a key role in the early recognition and treatment of patients with cardiovascular disease.   Foundational information of cardiovascular care helps initiate prevention discussions and lifestyle management interventions. Through patient education and quality care, nurses can prevent premature disease and death among patients with cardiovascular disease.

Cardiovascular Pharmacology, 3rd Edition

Price: $26.95  
Item # N1744  

Release Date: December 27, 2016

Expiration Date: December 31, 2019

 

According to data from the Center for Disease Control, 610,000 people die from heart disease in the United States annually.  One in every four deaths is due to cardiovascular disease. There are also 12 million yearly visits to physician’s offices and close to 4 million hospital discharges for cardiovascular disease. Treatment of cardiovascular disease and monitoring for therapeutic efficacy and side effects of the drugs used require a sound knowledge of the pharmacology of these agents.

Ongoing education is needed to keep pace with these evolving changes and to equip nursing professionals with the necessary knowledge and skills to implement the most recent advances in treatment. Nurses have an important responsibility in caring for patients who are receiving these medications. Knowledge of cardiovascular medications, their effects on the body, and their administration; assessment of therapeutic and adverse effects; and patient education are essential. The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of cardiovascular pharmacology. With an ever-increasing number of patients living longer, quality nursing care for those receiving drugs for cardiovascular disease will make this knowledge critical.

ECG Interpretation: A Step-by-Step Approach, 2nd Edition

Price: $26.95 
Item # N1796  

Release Date: March 19, 2018

Expiration Date: March 31, 2021

Provides an overview of both normal sinus rhythm and dysrhythmias. Treatment methods discussed include defibrillators and pacemakers. The course begins with the normal electrical conduction of the heart, and then reviews the steps of how to interpret electrocardiography (ECG). You will learn how to determine the heart rhythm and heart rate. Special considerations associated with Acute Coronary Syndrome are featured. Today, ECG interpretation is a skill necessary for nurses in a variety of clinical settings. The ability for nurses to quickly and accurately identify dysrhythmias is vital to assure prompt interventions and life-saving measures when necessary. Case Studies help connect content with practice.
