This high-level content course for nurses provides practical information to identify and treat the most commonly encountered gynecologic emergent conditions. The course begins with a discussion of the complications of medical and surgical abortion, including the clinical implications of illegal abortions. Nurses will learn about the provision of nursing care to patients with sexually transmitted diseases, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, gonorrhea, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), syphilis, herpes simplex virus, and chancroid. Vulvar and vaginal diseases are discussed, including vulvar discomfort, vaginosis, yeast infection, and trichomoniasis, and menorrhagia and abnormal vaginal bleeding, including endocrine-related causes of abnormal vaginal bleeding. Other topics covered include torsion of ovary (ovarian torsion), oncologic emergencies, urogynecologic emergencies, and postoperative complications. Nurses will also learn about emergency evaluation and treatment of the sexual assault victim, including the physical examination of a victim (adult or child) and treatment modalities for prevention of sexually transmitted diseases. Gynecologic traumas are described, including sexually related and non–sexually related trauma. Appropriate imaging modalities used in pregnant and nonpregnant patients experiencing gynecologic emergencies are also discussed. The course closes with a discussion of communication skills needed during a crisis in the emergency room.
