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.
