Today was intense.! We spent the morning hours learning about Cardiac and Respiratory Emergencies. It was like being in school again as we looked at a diagram of the heart and re-learned the functions of the aorta, the inferior vena cave, the left and right atrium and ventricle and how they all work together to keep us functioning. In the afternoon we learned about Neurological Emergencies including strokes and seizures. Our scenarios left us working with unresponsive patients. Patients in this state make it a bit harder to do a patient assessment on, but it was great to have to figure it out on our own. We ended the day with an abdominal relay to test our knowledge of where all of our major abdominal organs are. It was a super fun way to test our skills and get us moving!
Six days down, three to go!
