The goal of this program is to update nurses’ ability to deliver appropriate evidence-based nursing care specific to patients with either right ventricular or left ventricular infarctions. After you study the information presented here, you will be able to —
- Differentiate the physiological changes specific to RV versus LV myocardial infarctions (MIs).
- List three complications associated with MIs.
- Discuss therapeutic modalities useful in the management of MIs.
