    Welcome! Today’s NCLEX review subject is Alterations in Body Systems, and we are going to get started right now. You want to read through the overview of what we are going to talk about today, and some of the things we are going to talk about are under the physiological part of NCLEX exam.

So, think back to potassium, and which of these patients would she need to be watching for? Hopefully you picked A, renal failure,...
