WHAT IS HEART TRANSPLANTATION
Hope you had a good week.I would like to share
with you a topic that can be very helpful, regardless
of where you work.Heart Transplantation (the Clinical Setting Chp 10)
is presented in a nurse friendly way. A sample:
Tim was admitted to the ICU with extreme shortness
of breath, fatigue and chest pain. History includes
CAD (coronary artery disease ) and two MIs.
The doctor inserted a PAC ( Pulmonary Artery
Catheter ) in Tim's heart.
He was also put on medications like:
- Dobutrex to improve cardiac output
- Nipride to increase vasodilation
