    Not sure what school you go to, or where you are located. How about trying to find a tutor at your school, or coming to this board with some questions. I'd be willing to help you out if I know the answer. I'm sure if I don't know the answer someone here must know. Take a deep breath, we will all get thru this. I am too in an ADN program, in my second semester. We can do this, think positive.

    Hi:

    I hope I am responding correctly to this posting.

    I am at Massbay and in my second semester, as well. NU 150 Medical-Surgical Nursing. Have you touched on Fluids and Electrolytes, Respiratory or Care of the Acutely Ill Child? This is where we are/going and our next exam is on the 10th. What do you know about this area? I need to pull it all together and figure out the best way to prepare.

    I want to succeed!!!

    I have done Fluids and Electrolytes. I have not done the Respiratory care of a child. I have quite a bit of information on Fluid and Electrolytes, and there is quite a bit to know. I'm not sure what you want to focus on. Just ask me a few questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Good luck.

    Hi:

    Thanks for your reply. I guess, I need to know a good way to take in this information. It appears to be a lot and I guess to have any charts, diagrams, mneumonic devices, ideas? I am not too sure how to get started on this. I have done a majority of the reading - it just seems to be confusing.

    This is how I got through electrolytes...

    First I took each electrolyte and defined it. Then I took the values and ranges and understood that for example Sodium (135-145) <135 Hyponatremia, >145 Hypernatremia. Then I broke those two up and studied all the nursing assessments for each. For example, some causes for Hyponatremia- excessive sweating, tap H20 enemas, etc... and then studied the symptoms.. Personality changes, n/v, diarrhea, etc... then the nursing care. After I was able to conquer and understand that I went on to the Hypernatremia and did the same thing. From there I moved on the Potassium and all the others. After you get through all the electrolytes and have an idea of what they all stand for you can start comparing them and grouping them into categories. For example, monitor I & O for all of them, assess for acidosis ( Hyperkalemia, and Hypercalcemia).

    Hope this helps a bit. Are you doing acid base balance along with this? We did and that also helped out alot by comparing certain electrolytes. If there is anything else I can tell you about this please let me know. Good luck.
