I was just hired to start in cardiac icu on June 11th. I am a new nurse I graduated last May and have been working on a Oncology/Hematology/MedSurg overflow for the past 11 months. I am feeling a little overwhelmed with the hemodynamics and iv drip medications. My CVICU residency does not start until June 28th but I do not want to go into this new critical environment unprepared. I was wondering if you guys could tell me the basic concepts I should know/review before my start date...what drips should i be familiar with...and etc. Thank you guys for any input!
