Topic 4 | Diabetic Emergencies and Altered Mental Status
There are several core concepts in this topic. We begin with the Pathophysiology of the reticular activating system; and then continue with the General approaches to assessing a patient with an altered mental status. Then we discuss the causes, assessment and care of the patients starting with
diabetes and various diabetic emergencies.
We then discuss a variety of conditions that may cause an altered mental status, beginning with sepsis;
We then continue with seizure disorders,
Next we discuss T I A’s and stroke, and finishing with
dizziness and syncope.
Finally, there will be a chapter review before the 15-question quiz at the end. You will need to answer 75% of the questions accurately to get credit for this topic.

Topic 5 | Bleeding and Shock
We begin with the Circulatory System, and then continue with the various aspects of controlling bleeding. Then we discuss the causes, assessment and care of patients experiencing Hypoperfusion or shock. And, There are several core concepts in this topic including:
• How to recognize arterial, venous, and capillary bleeding, and
• How to evaluate the severity of external bleeding , and next
• How to control external bleeding, and then
• Signs, symptoms, and care of a patient with internal bleeding, and finally
• Signs, symptoms, and care of a patient with shock.
After the session on shock, there will be a chapter review before the quiz at the end. You will need to answer 75% of the questions accurately to get credit for this topic.
