Hey LS2 friends.
What is the drug of choice for Pancreatitis/Cholecystitis? Saunders says Demerol, textbook says Morphine, we always give Dilaudid because our docs say both are bad and cause spasms and buildup.
I'm thinking it's Morphine, for EC purposes?
Morphine. Demerol used to be the drug of choice but it has lately been changed to Morphine.
*Checked on the EPN for EC accuracy*
ahhh I am 3/4 of the way prepared and I can't seem to get myself to study metabolic. I don't mind studying mental health or endocrine or cognitive, but I don't want to study metabolic /pout
I need some concentration.... Going to try the practice test and then decide if I'm testing tomorrow or thursday... be back a bit later people.

I do think this question was posted a couple of months ago on EPN....sorry I can't help, not quite there in my readings yet but I would always go with the text vs saunders because that is what is in EC required reading! Good luck!
You are right that it was... The answer by Joanne was morphine.
Do y'all take notes while studying/reading through or just read it thru? Curious how y'all are studying for ls2... Thanks!
I didn't do as well as I hoped in practice test two, however I did improve. I'm not sure if I'm rescheduling or not... Hoping to get some info from a few previous testers who did not so hot on the practice tests before I make a decision.
Edited to Add:
I went back and tallied how many answers I changed from right to wrong and I changed 14 answers. I am thinking I am going to go for it tomorrow and make a vow to not change answers. I will re-read things from now until I go to bed and then do a short review tomorrow.
Every so often I will jot something down in the book, highlight, underline stuff.. for the most part, I just read, review with questions, repeat. I do have some flash cards too. I always make them from the practice exam rationales. :-)
I definitely do make notes from the practice exams as well!!
Reading to notes to note cards to more notes and note cards and then a final sheet of notes that is like my cheat sheet of notes that i write on my board when i get there to help me keep a few things straight. This is only my third time using the practice test and it didn't seem to help the last time I used it but I'm hoping it does a lot better for me this time.
OMG girl... I noticed you said LS Psych I thought great one more class I have to take...lol you are referring to Life Span psych the credit for Social Science, correct? when are you testing to LS2? let me know whenever you want to study I will make sure I am available.
I can't recall which exit you must take but it's right off the exit to you right.
I get close to no phone service at my house sometimes and my text messages come usually like 4 days later in a huge quantity, LMAO. I am ready but now I have no where to test. I am going to call Katia in PSL and see if she can squeeze me in on a day that isn't posted on my Pearson site since Pearson cancelled all my tests this month. I will ask my parents if they can babysit for me soon, hopefully we can get together and study :-)I am taking LS Psych in Deerfield on the 26th. How do I get there??? Is it hard to find?

YAY!!! God is so good to me. I just checked the Pearson site and PSL has a cancellation for Tuesday the 12th afterall! :-)
See you tomorrow at B&N girlie. I will bring my SG101 notes and my Saunders. I am so excited to study together with someone... and even more excited that my last nursing exam is only a week away! :-)
