Any helpful hints on Fluid and Electrolytes ????
- 0Feb 18, '04 by StudentNurse825hi everyone,
i am in nursing school and we are on fluid and electrolytes. i was wondering if anyone has any helpful hints on retaining all of the information (maybe that has helped you in the past) or any books or websites that may help.
thanks in advance !!!!

Also have specific books like, F & E Made Easy, etc. Our library has a few choices on their shelves. There are dozens of them out there and several people in our class have used a variety of them. No substitute for reading the text chapters, imho, but these books do condense and compartmentalize this kind of stuff.

If you are in clinical already, I would try to take a renal patient, look over the labs for a couple of days, make some notes, and follow up by reading over the normal values, the patient's values, and what your might expect...pick just a couple of values a day to focus on...reading and rereading is good but for me, I have to see it for it to make more sense...
