    Lifelong, thank u millions. Your tutorials helped me greatly, passing the CCRN with no problem. I also used my TNCC and Fundamentals of Critical Care books.

    This helped me pass my CCRN yesterday! I can’t believe I knew what the pacemaker settings were (there was only one question haha). But there were sooooo many cardiac questions so thank you for this and for recording on a good mic! Lol I listened to this nonstop while driving back and forth to work.

      pulchra icu experience doesn’t have much bearing. All you do is punt symptoms and ask for orders. There’s no knowledge behind it

      I also used the PASS CCRN Book but mostly the Q/A that comes with the book on Evolve

    Hey just wanted to say thanks for the great vid. Have some feedback for you as I totally think efforts such as these should be rewarded. If you break these up into ~15-20 min videos you'll get to fully flesh out single sections, easy to digest, can market it as being able to fit in a coffee break & generate traffic & ad revenue on each. Also those mid ccrn review can cherry pick topics of review & you can still throw it all in a playlist to comprise a "full" review. Got my sub! Big on podcasts for my commute I'll be checking that out too.

      @Lifelong Nursing These are definitely great videos, can you include the actual heart sounds in future educational videos if possible. That would be the icing on the cake, again thanks.

      +shy l thank you for your feedback back, it is definitely welcomed. I've considered shorter videos, however, not quite sure if I'd like to change that just yet. Eventually, when I'm finished with the CCRN videos, there will be shorter "educational" videos that mainly teach one topic

    Just did my CCRN and 80% of the questions came from Cardiac. Almost 4slides in and i already see 4 questions from there.

      @FlawlessFaceByToya I found this useful when driving coz it's basically Barron's Adults CCRN book voiced over. But I studied the book and mostly the hemodynamic sections. Most questions were related to hemodynamics..

    • FlawlessFaceByToya
      FlawlessFaceByToya 4 months ago

      @anne M how long did you study for before you took the exam? What other study resources did you utilize beside these awesome videos?

    • Lifelong Nursing
      Lifelong Nursing  3 years ago +1

      I've not taken the PCCN exam, however some of the fundamentals should be the same such as body systems, first line medications, etc.

    Question! at 39:38 the slide says beta blockers are given for chronic heart failure, but then it says negative inotropes are contraindicated. Can you please explain? are beta blockers the exception?

  • Francis Huberto Vasquez

    Very informative.

      For the most part, but there is less detail and slight changes as these are alittle old.

    • karina

      Yes it is called Barron's CCRN Exam Book

  • Annie Bolick

    Anyway to get the power points ? Or as PDF to print off and write notes on?

    • Lifelong Nursing
      Lifelong Nursing  3 years ago

      Barron's is helpful, although it doesn't contain updated information from AACN like I include in the videos. The upside is, it's not a ton of information that is updated.

    • sclair10
      sclair10 3 years ago +1

      You can buy Barons CCRN review, it seems to be pretty much verbatim, and that book includes a pre test and some tests in the back of the book.

    • Lifelong Nursing
      Lifelong Nursing  3 years ago

      Unfortunately I haven't kept any files once the videos were made, with the exception of my last video. Endocrine. If you'd like that, I'll be happy to email it to you

      I have posted this somewhere on this very video about five months ago, I was actually just looking for the comment to see a reply. But it may have been deleted. But to be fair Barrons per reddit and other places I have looked is the best prep guide.

    The tricuspid point at 01:30 should be on the left side, no?

    • Jocelyn Walker
      Jocelyn Walker 2 years ago

      Mike McLean no, tricuspid is right. Mitral (bicuspid) is left.

    Are you affiliated with Barron? I feel as though this is regurgitation of the Barron book.

  • William Thomas
