Nursing Mnemonics for Fluid and Electrolytes: A Study Guide and Cheat Sheet
Fluid and electrolyte imbalances are important concepts for nursing practice. Understanding normal values and pathophysiology is crucial in identifying and managing imbalances.
Common imbalances include hypernatremia, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, hypokalemia, acid-base imbalances, and fluid volume excess or deficit.
Nursing interventions may include medication administration, IV therapy, and monitoring fluid and electrolyte levels.
Mnemonics such as “VACCiNe”, “CHAMP”, and “LADDER” can help students remember key concepts.
