Description

You will learn to look beyond the numbers and see that the “Basic” Metabolic Panel (BMP) is anything BUT basic! Your patients’ levels may not be where you think they are, or “normal” may represent anything but homeostasis. Understand important implications for renal health and a proactive approach to patient management. You will also advance your skills in electrolyte interpretation and gain the confidence you need to manage the next life-threatening emergency.

  3. Connect expected changes to the EKG with life-threatening potassium levels.
  4. Connect Chvostek’s sign and Trousseau sign and the relationship to electrolyte status.
