Lecture Overview

A lecturer once told Renee Di Giuseppe not to automatically assume someone is drunk if they are stumbling down the street; for they could quite possibly be having a hypoglycaemic attack... Since then, the four factors that can cause an altered state of consciousness have stayed with her: sugars, sedation, seizures, and stroke. Join Renee for this easy-to-understand refresher on how to conduct a comprehensive neurological assessment - a cornerstone of clinical nursing practice.
