NURS 720 - Advanced Patho-Physiology

Credits 3
The course is organized around the physiological response and adaptation to disease state by using the conceptual approach such as physiological concepts of oxygenation, metabolism, mobility, sensation, immunity and reproduction. This knowledge transfers the patho-physiological basis of nursing care to a client with impaired pulmonary diffusion, to a child with cystic fibrosis or to an elderly client with pulmonary edema. Physiological concepts are applied to a variety of age groups and clinical settings. Implications for advanced nursing practice are emphasized through examination of selected pathophysiological phenomena that occur frequently.
