FREE TRAINING: 3 Mistakes Even Smart NPs Make Interpreting Labs

3 Simple Steps for a High Calcium Workup (Plus, Do-Not-Miss Diagnoses)

Aug 27, 2019

As a new nurse practitioner, I'd get a sinking feeling as I watched new lab results pile up in my inbox every time I'd check my computer between patients.

It's a topic that's somewhat covered in school... but not really. At least, not for most new grads.

Today's video kicks off the Lab Interpretation Series— concise, practical videos to help manage your overflowing lab results pile.

I love high calcium (#nerdalert) because it's one of the simpler labs to workup. In this video, you'll get:

  • Three easy steps to workup any high calcium
  • The #1 lab to think of when you see high calcium (bonus points if you can count the number of times I mention it! Ha!)
  • The hard-to-forget Do-Not-Miss diagnoses

(FYI: to slow down the audio speed, hit the gear symbol in the bottom right corner and change it to .75x or .5x. Closed captions are also located at the bottom R hand corner of the video.)

Once you've watched, I'd love to hear from you.

What is your number 1 takeaway about hypercalcemia?

Thanks so much for watching. Hang in there, and I'll see you soon.
