Life-Threatening Electrolyte Imbalances

  • Critical Clues for Quick Identification
  • Panic Values
  • Interventions that Improve Outcomes
  • Potential Causes & Treatments

OBJECTIVES

  1. Interpret patterns of ischemia, injury and infarction on a 12-lead EKG.
  2. Discuss cardiac disorders which carry an increased risk for sudden death.
  3. Describe the relationship between ventilation and perfusion.
  4. Identify conditions which would require a chest tube.
  5. Recognize assessment findings in clinical syndromes that may progress rapidly and cause life-threatening conditions.
  6. Define the anatomy and physiology of the neurological system and how this manifests in physical symptoms.
  7. Recognize life-threatening electrolyte imbalances, potential causes and remedies.
  8. Interpret arterial blood gasses using a three-step method.
  9. Compare and contrast the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve to pulse oximetry readings, So2 and pO2 values.
  10. Evaluate signs, symptoms and treatment modalities for four different classifications of shock.
  11. Describe systemic inflammatory response syndrome and the spectrum of septic shock.
  12. Correlate clinical presentations of patients during the continuum of SIRS to septic shock.
