  1. Your explanaition is to the point! thank you. Please think about using a
    thicker line in order to follow your drawings a little bit easier.

  2. hey..tootRN, LLC. i’ve read this q and a… a bit confused though with the
    answer… here it is
    The answer to the question is B. The jugular veins in the neck should be
    assessed for distension. The other parts of the body will be edematous in
    right-sided congestive heart failure, not left-sided; thus, answers A, C,
    and D are incorrect.

    The client is admitted with left-sided congestive heart failure. In
    assessing the client for edema, the nurse should check the:

    a. Feet
    b. Neck
    c. Hands
    d. Sacrum 

  3. That was the most fantastic Job I’ve ever heard of this. It was simple to
    follow and understand 

  4. Would you see JVD with a tension pneumo thorax?? Please explain why. 

  5. Thanks a lot. Nice video. Very clear explanation. 

  6. If a patient had right sided failure exclusively, perhaps due to pulmonary
    hypertension (cor pulmonale), without left side involvement, does the fluid
    retention tend to be generalized throughout the body (anasarca) or is it
    more confined to lower legs and abdomen? As I understand it, RHF leads to
    hypervolemia with low perfusion pressure, which sometimes results in extra
    fluid/edema getting trapped within interstitial spaces creating a so-called
    “third space” effect. The patient actually has low effective circulating
    blood volume and is, in a sense, “dehydrated”, despite the extra fluid. I’m
    just wondering if this third-spaced edema is ever generalized everywhere,
    rather than just the legs

  7. Thanks so much! That was very helpful :-).
