Basic Cardiovascular A&P – Presentation

As part of a new section on Injectable Orange, I am gradually adding a number of my past presentations to the site. Feel free to adapt, use, chop to bits and sticky-tape back together. All part of a philosophy of not wasting time on duplication.

This is a very basic fundamental overview of Cardiovascular anatomy and physiology. This was one of the first presentations I did as a nurse (in my grad year) as a functional update for the ICU nurse team and also as part of our Cardiac Grad Nurse study day. Very text heavy, but the intent was for it to be a usable resource for other facilitators.

Desaturation – Presentation

Slides from presentation/discussion for a great group of Nurses at the Pulmonary Workshop. The patient cases contained in the presentation are a fictional composite of multiple presentations – not based on any real person.

There will be slide notes and more resources to follow, when I get some time (i.e. when Archie actually goes to sleep and stops trying to type this for me).
