    Does Kaplan's Decision Tree Work for the Exit HESI (Please Reply)

    hello! i just took hesi a week ago, so i have some advice for you. i did suzanne's suggestion, went through chapters in the hesi book and read the hesi hint. i studied for an entire week. i am not saying 24/ during that week but i did study some everyday. the morning of my hesi test i woke up and signed in to my kaplan online and listened to he video's (ithink there were 3) on the decision tree. i made a 916 on hesi! i am so thankful i passed and have made it through that! so, to answer your question i def. think that kaplan will help you. i really believe there advice helped me pass. i think the hesi and nclex both test you on critical thinking and i was able to do that by breaking apart the uestions like kaplan taught. there are many things i studied that i feel were a waste of time. i tried finding people to help me narrow down what i needed to focus on, but all anyone would say was everything is on there. that wasn't the case. i am happy to help you in anyway i can. the main thing is remain calm! there are many people who fail because they have so much anxiety. you need to go in there with an additude that you can do it! "i can do all things through christ who strengthens me" (phil 4:13) everytime i would get the least bit of anxiety during the test i would close my eyes and pray. i couldn't have made it that day without god by my side! god bless you! good luck! heather p.s. let me know how you do!

    Help with care plan for COPD patient

    Thanks Day! I do know the pts COPD is emphysema. I do not know anything about the heart since there was nothing done about it yet. The pt came in for chest pain, she stated she was having palpitation and sob more than usual. Thats all I know. I hate these things! I do not know what to use now? So you don't think decreased cardiac output can be used? How can I prove the other diag. you gave me?? I am sorry so many questions, I am just overwhelmed! Thanks in advance for your help!

  16. I am having trouble, I have been working on this careplan for 12 hours.... I need 3 nursing diagnosis, I have 2 and I think I may have the third, but I am having trouble with the goals for it. My patient was admitted for unstable angina, however they are addressing her lung issues before sending her for a cardiac cath. The day I took care of her however, she had no chest pain. Clear lungs, however decreased lung sounds bilat. No cough, or sputum. She is on 2 liters o2, even at home due to her copd. No edema. She does have dyspnea on exertion. pt has hypertension, and anxiety as previous diag. Pulse is in high 90. pt did report palpitations on admission. So the 2 I have for sure are 1. Imparied gas exchange r/t aveolar capillary membrane changes secondary to COPD 2. Activity intolerance r/t imbalance between oxygen supply and demand Now the third I am thinking is Decreased cardiac output r/t altered heart rate/rhythm and hypertension Goals I can't figure out, I think one could be patient will remain free of side effects from the medications used to achieve adequate cardiac output. (patient on digoxin) If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it!! May God bless you all!! Heather
