The Cardiovascular and Respiratory Systems

A nurse is preparing educational materials for a group of older adults regarding cardiac function and health promotion.
Use the scenario and the questions to guide an original response:

  • How would this educational program be different from a program aimed at educating school-age children about a cardiac condition?
  • Additionally, if the cardiac condition were related to a newly diagnosed genetic defect, describe the role of the nurse.
