Tip of the Week – Cardioverting with Confidence and Polypharmacy


Let’s get in to our tip of the week this week. I have two more segments I recorded while at NTI 2013, the American Association of Critical Care Nurses conference in Boston last month. Before I go on, a special thank-you to Physio-Control for sponsoring my coverage at NTI and the trip to Boston. Without their generous support, I wouldn’t be able to bring you these upcoming interviews. First off, I bring back nurse educator Kelly Arashin for a chat about her presentation at the conference on Polypharmacy. Here’s my chat with Kelly in the Physio-Control booth at NTI.

Next up is a chat with our friend Barbara Furry who was one of the guest educators in the Physio-Control booth where she was chatting about cardioverting with confidence. That’s certainly something that I never thought of doing confidently but I think you’ll get her take on this and more about cardiac care in this special interview segment.
