    of the facts. Part of the learning experience in Nursing school should be the ability to use resources other than other people to find the answers you are looking for. When I'm at work, there are many times where I need to look something up - ie - what a waveform should look like when I wedge a Swann (I'm still new at it, I'd rather compare the waveform with the book than take someone's word for it that it "looks good")

    Most NCLEX books include answers plus rationales for questions like these. I strongly recommend investing in one, or borrowing one from the library.

    Good luck and I am not trying to be mean (or eat my young), just a little tough love.

    see what a little google search can do:


    OEDEMA - a guide for patient's

    and honestly looking back at these questions, I think you are trying to look for an answer thru either this forum or google, when most of them are common sense, you just need to think them thru.
