Abstract
"This one day seminar focuses on "all things cardiac"—risk factors for cardiovascular disease—the usual suspects (hypercholesterolemia, obesity, hyperlipidemia, smoking, diabetes, metabolic syndrome) and the "not-so-usual" risk factors (autoimmune diseases, long-term cocaine/meth use, PCOS, depression, thyroid disease), cardiovascular assessment (HR, BP, peripheral pulses, landmarks and heart sounds, heart murmurs), cardiovascular drugs (beta blockers, thiazide and loop diuretics, ACE inhibitors, ARBs, Calcium channel blockers, anti-coagulants, anti-platelet drugs, anti-arrhythmic drugs), and diagnostic testing (BNP, cardiac enzymes, troponin, hs-CRP, cholesterol and lipid-profile). Gender differences in ACS (acute coronary syndrome) presentation and treatment will also be discussed. Barb will also discuss clinical cardiac conditions including Chronic Heart Failure, Hypertension and end-organ disease, atrial fibrillation, valvular heart disease, and cardiomyopathies." -- Barb Bancroft website.

Abstract
Barb provides an overview on how to approach the pediatric patient—from the newborn to a nineteen-year-old. What should you expect with vital signs? Why is a heart rate of 120 perfectly fine for a one-month-old and an ALARM sign in a 15-year-old with fever and dehydration? How do you assess a toddler with an average 300-word vocabulary consisting of one MAJOR word—"NO" ? Whatever you do, don't ask them if you can do something! How do you explain "the Teenage Brain"? The best neuro exam in a young child consists of observation—the majority of cranial nerves can be examined by watching facial expressions. What 3 individual clinical features are the most accurate for predicting 5% dehydration in kids? Barb explains the clinical findings in children that help to estimate the degree of dehydration—mild, moderate, and severe in kids. Why is weight such an important vital sign in kids? How do you determine fluid and drug doses? What are the new guidelines for determining tonsillectomies in children? What are the new guidelines for working up a child with febrile seizures? What is the current treatment for children with status epilepticus? What's so different about the respiratory system in children vs. adults? What are the causes of acidosis in kids? What are the treatment guidelines for diabetic ketoacidosis? What are some ALARM signs for child abuse? What are some early clues observed in young children with autism? What are the criteria for assessing the child with an acute asthma attack? (website)

Abstract
Barb takes a "journey" through the brain—the Cerebral Cortex (all four lobes and their functions), and shows how to assess the 4 lobes as well as pathophysiology, including head injuries, brain tumors, and dementias; the basal ganglia and assessment, including the patient with a movement disorder—Parkinson's disease, Huntington's chorea, and athetosis; the brain stem—assessment and clinical correlations including cranial nerves; spinal cord and the reflex arc. It's a great lecture for neuro novices as well as seasoned neuro nurses—everyone learns some new tidbits as well as refreshing some old tidbits. (website)
