Top NCLEX Testing Tips 💡 🔥Acute issues are the PRIORITY. New, unstable or unexpected are higher priority than chronic, stable, or expected. 🔥 Turn all SATA answers into True/False Statements 🔥If two answers are similar, neither is correct. 🔥If two answers are opposite, chances are one is correct. 🔥 Always Assess 1st unless the patient is in Distress 🔥 “What is the nurse’s best action?, this means out of all the options what is the one thing the nurse could do to most likely fix the issue. 🔥 Use ABCs, Safety, Pain, Education, Feelings 🔥 Do not ask “Why?” or say “Don’t worry!” 🔥Remember your Rights o Med Admin and Delegation! Please share with your cohort and all the Nursing Students you know who are graduating!!!! ❤️ ⭐️ NCLEX Notes & 1 Hour Review Video used by almo
🚨Nclex Hack: Ventilator Alarms🚨 🫁What is a Ventilator? A mechanical ventilator is a machine used to move air in & out of a patient's lungs. 🫁Who needs a Ventilator? Patients who have trouble breathing on their own benefit from the use of mechanical ventilation. Ex: Respiratory Failure, Cardiac Arrest, Pneumonia, Stroke ⚠️Nclex Tip: When a Ventilator alarms, always check the patient FIRST! 🔥 Hack to Remember Causes of High vs. Low-Pressure Ventilator Alarms ⬆️ High Pressure = BLOCK B: Biting Tube from Patient • L: Liquid in Tube • O: Obstruction • C: Copious Secretions K: Kink in Tubing ⬇️ LOW Pressure = Leak A leak or disconnect is the common cause of a Low-Pressure Ventilator Alarm and the nurse should tighten or reconnect loose tubing or assess & reinflate cuff. ❤️H
