My understanding is that they're benign and it's a premature beat next to the QRS complex.
I will never understand telemetry and rhythms.
In 95 when I was in my senior year of nursing school
, I took the Critical Care course and we studied the strips but it was so confusing to me. The instructors told me that I'd learn more by actually doing it in my job. Well then I worked Oncology and our tele patients were monitored by the tele nurses on another unit. They called our charge nurse who then told me what needed to happen. I just never learned a lot about strips.
Then we had three kids and I've been home with them and recently went back to work per diem as a registry RN where we have more minor illness/etc to care for.
Any suggestions? I've pondered going to work for a larger hospital which offers a great orientation and actual CLASSES (Classes Offered: Cardiovascular system, Respiratory, Neurological/Surgical, Renal, and Hemodynamics). But I presently only work 1-2 times every week or so. And it may only be for a 4.5 hour shift to help out. THis is good b/c we have little girls that I want to stay home with as much as possible.
I'm rambling. Any help with the bigeminy though?
