Need help with Med/Surg?

  1. A few years ago I posted my A&P notes and they seemed to help a lot of people who were struggling with that beast of a class. I also have my Med/Surg I and II notes typed up and will try to post the smaller files here. Please forgive typos...sometimes I type fast and "the" becomes "teh" more often than not!

    Hmmm...I am having trouble getting files to says they're too big. I will see if I can make them the meantime, feel free to message me and I can send them to you or let you know when they are posted.

    I think if I buy a premium membership I will be able to post my notes. Waiting to hear back from the help desk. Sorry for the delay!

    It looks like I just need to pay for a premium I'll do that now and see if I can get something up. I know some of the files are too big...but can possibly email those. PM me your email address if you want the bigger files. Hang tight!

    split them into smaller files.....don't load them all at once.

    Ok, here are a few to get started...these are for Med/Surg I. CV.pdfLooks like the IV Therapy notes are from a meeting with one of my professors during office it's random little tidbits of info...everything else is from a lecture.

    Somehow the first cardiovascular lecture notes got imbedded in the text...weird. The rest are as attachments.

    More to come.

    Our first Med/Surg class relied heavily on case studies....some of the notes I have are based off these case studies and may reference a fictitious patient (lab values and PMH). In some cases, I have the case study/patient history included with the notes, other times I don't. Even when it's not there, I think there's still a ton of helpful information in there. Hope that helps!

    I also should let you know that you will see the acronym LATTE used in some of the case studies...this is a devise I came up with to organize my thinking.

    L = what will the patient LOOK like (how do they present?)
    A = what ASSESSMENTS will you perform?
    T = what TESTs (labs, diagnostics, etc) will you anticipate the doc ordering, and how will you prep pt for those tests?
    T = what TREATMENTS will you provide?
    E = how will you EDUCATE the patient?

    Hope that helps...and be warned if you are printing these...the FINAL CASE STUDIES is 80 pages long ;-)
