NURS 7491 Chemistry and Physics for Nurse Anesthesia Practice (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course is an in-depth study of principles of chemistry and physics as they relate to nurse anesthesia practice. Aspects of organic and biochemistry, including the chemical structure of compounds and their significance in pharmacology, will be explored. The role of acid-base balance in maintaining the body's internal milieu and cellular integrity will be examined. Laws of physics as they pertain to the nurse anesthesia practice will be illustrated with specific examples. The emphasis will be placed on the assimilation and integration of scientific theory into practice.
