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.

For nurses working in hospitals, placement of a vascular access device for infusion therapy is the most common invasive procedure. Because it is such common practice, nurses may underestimate potential risks and complications that may be serious and even life-threatening. In a survey conducted by the Infusion Nurses Society in relation to peripheral intravenous (IV) catheters, 71% reported having received "on-the-job" training often using a "see one, do one" approach. Although the skill level in placement of devices is important, knowledge related to evidence-based care for the patient often is lacking. When appropriate care is not provided, it potentially affects clinical outcomes. This course is intended for nurses who administer infusion therapy in all healthcare settings. The course addresses potential complications of infusion therapy with an emphasis on risk factors, identification of signs and symptoms, prevention, and interventions for phlebitis, infiltration and extravasation, nerve injuries, infections, thrombosis, and air embolism.

Women and Cardiovascular Disease is written for all nurses who work with women, regardless of whether their practice includes women with cardiovascular disease. For those nurses whose practice includes direct care of women with cardiovascular disease, a stronger theoretical basis for understanding patient care is an expected continuing nursing education outcome. For those nurses whose practice does not include caring for women with cardiovascular disease, theoretical and practical aspects of caring for and teaching women about cardiovascular disease will be learned. The purpose of this course is to enable nurses to incorporate into their clinical practice evidenced-based information on the etiology, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, treatment options, and prevention strategies for women who have or are at risk for cardiovascular disease.
