Need help with Med/Surg?

  1. 3 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 upload....it says they're too big. I will see if I can make them smaller...in 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 membership...so 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!

    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 hours...so 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 ;-)
