Tip of the Week– Meningitis Review

NOTE: Listener Kirsten caught an error on the show this week.  I mispoke on the topic of Cushing’s triad.  In the show I mentioned Cushing’s Triad of vital signs as increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, and decreased respirations.  THAT IS INCORRECT!

Cushings Triad is correctly stated as:

  1. Increased Blood Pressure (with widening pulse pressure)
  2. DECREASED heart rate
  3. Decreased or erratic respirations

Thank you to Kirsten for catching the mistake and emailing me at Comments@NursingShow.com
