These readings are just for your personal use - I recommend taking a look at them at some point - but they will not be on the test. Perhaps you can download them to your computer before you no longer have access to this class through ThinkWave...?

Reading for Final Exam

from:Dorman, Erin

to:All Students

There are no specific readings that are required for the Final Exam.

There are six boxes of assigned readings that appear on your syllabus after the midterm. Of these readings any of the articles in the first three boxes are fair game for extra credit questions. The readings in the second three boxes (ones that I have specified as optional when posting onto ThinkWave) will not be used for extra credit questions.

If you have any questions about what I mean, please email me!

Olivia's Story

from:Woodard, Jackie

to:All Students

I am still smiling at my "healthy lungs" card. You guys!

Please remind everyone to check my postings on Think Wave.


Shellayna, I have a specific request of you. Olivia has a prenatal visit due of Thursday, 2/23. Would you (and another classmate of your choosing to work with) be responsible for a short (15 to 20 minutes) classroom/group presentation/prenatal visit. You may use role play, power point, discussion or any other resourceful activity. We just do not want to miss anything on her and I feel she has been a bit neglected. You can take the visit any direction you desire, just keep it "normal" as possible. There may be some pathology later on. Does she need more nutrition and water intake counseling? Her B/P was up a little the last few times, maybe some edema, does she need to talk about her delivery plan? Any testing due? You get the picture. Make sure that everyone is keeping up her chart. The individual student charts do NOT have to exactly MATCH (for example vital signs), but all of the elements should be there and when she has delivered, all 12 of you will have a completed record of Olivia's Story. Since Olivia has approximately 6 more prenatal visits before she delivers, after you finish her visit on Thursday, you can pass the baton of responsibilty for the next prenatal visit (3/15/2012) to anyone else in the class and they can run with it. The person you appoint gets to choose a partner. That way in six prenatal visits all 12 of you guys will have a go at it.

If you have ANY questions, please feel free to e-mail me.

Jackie

Take Home #6

from:Woodard, Jackie

to:All Students

TAKE HOME EXAM   # 6
HealthCare Skills II SPRING 2012     _______________________________________________

• Varney 3rd Edition: Chapter 2 Basics of Management of Care (focus on the ROS for the Muscular-Skeletal)
• Jarvis:  5th Edition:   Chapter 22 (Musculoskeletal)
• Weaver 4th Edition:  Section II, pages 28 and 29.  CVAT and Clonus.


When speaking of physical exam, you have heard my mantra, “ALWAYS compare side to side”.  This is especially true when screening a musculo-skeletal complaint.  Keep in mind that you should inspect and palpate the unaffected or normal side first so that you have a basis of comparison.


• So we begin with inspection:    What are you looking for when inspecting or screening the MS system?

 

• Then palpation:  What are we determining during palpation?

 


• Range of motion:   Describe the difference between ACTIVE range of motion and PASSIVE range of motion.

Midterm grades and test review

from:Earley, Kaitlin

to:2120 Intrapartum

Hello women,

The midterm grades are up, and include a 2 percentage point curve. There was one question thrown out (Ritgen Maneuver) and a couple of others that were sketchy, hence the curve.

This Tuesday I will need to end class at about 11:15. At that time I will give you your midterms and let you keep them until later in the afternoon. We can schedule an exam review during one of your breaks if you want, or you can just come to me individually with questions. I will be back at the school by 2 or 3pm.

Vocabulary and abbreviations

from:Woodard, Jackie

to:All Students

Thank you sounds so inadequate, but be assured that I say it with profound sincerity.  The card is beautiful, cute, creative, heartfelt, and appropriately ironic!  I smile every single time it crosses my field of vision.  I know, I have said this to you guys many times, but as a group and as individuals, you continue to amaze me.  And believe me, I am NOT easily impressed and I do not give out superfluous or gratuitous compliments.
Now, for a little bit of business.    Somehow in all of this craziness, I remembered my promise of passing along a list of abbreviations. This excellent list of OB terms and acronyms was compiled by Robyn Mattox, who has kindly given her permission for distribution to FSTM students. The list is the best I have seen and contains useful, purposeful vocabulary you will use in documentation every day in your practice.  I will try to post it to ThinkWave later today or tomorrow.  I do not have Quiz 2 graded but when I do, I will post that grade to ThinkWave.  I will be sure to have the hard copy of Quiz 2 back to you in time to review for Mid-term.
My roller coaster ride has slowed but it is far from over.  I have been humbled by the experience and learned valuable lessons.  I am going to rest now.
Jackie

I am hearing from some of you that you are having difficulty knowing which definition to go with for this assignment. So your best bet is finding the ones that are related to childbirth. If you aren't sure then leave it blank and we will discuss them at our next class. Don't stress about it!

DRAM

from:Woodard, Jackie

to:1222L HCS Lab II

Guys,

On my drive home last PM, my brain must have been working, although, I was zoning at the red lights!  The symbol you were asking me about is part of the apothocaries system of measure and it is call a "dram".  There are 16 drams in an ounce.  Hope this helps.
