PATHOPHYSIOLOGY and Basic nursing review

Hi Everyone,

I'm currently a student. I'm creating this thread to review my pathophysiology material. I feel like I"ve forgotten so much. I really need your support in participating and in adding addition information to my material. I'm going to use this thread to motivate me to post most of the review. THANK you for participating :)

I DON'T even know where to start? Any advice?l

Do you have an area that you are focusing on in particular?

How about Fluids and electrolytes? I struggled with this. Watched a ton of YouTube videos to understand the concepts. Follow it up with Acids and bases. Good luck. :up:

Kind of broad......what are you looking for. You can also use the search freature in the upper right hand corner and find many posts/threads about pathophys.

I agree with the poster below, starting with Fluids & Electrolytes, Acids & bases is a great idea. This is an important foundation for nursing. We may not draw ABGs (usually RT does), but we need to understand them, know what happens in our patient's when they're on a vent, or in DKA, or hyperventilating, etc. so that we can PREPARE and PREVENT complications from happening.

So, tell us, what do you remember about this?
