New Lecture on Raynaud's Phenomenon ~NCLEX

In this lecture Professor Kristin Beach, MSN, BSN, RN will be presenting on Raynaud's Phenomenon. Raynaud's can be defined as a vasospastic condition resulting from cold weather that decreases the blood flow to the fingers, toes, nose, and ears. Raynaud's is further classified as either primary or secondary. Primary Raynaud's most commonly occurs in younger females with no underlying disease and is referred to as a phenomenon. Secondary Raynaud's is usually due to an underlying autoimmune disease like Scleroderma, or RA, which is why clinicians term this kind as a disease or syndrome. Overall, Raynaud's causes skin color changes and if severe enough, can lead to necrosis of a digit requiring amputation. However, this phenomenon is most frequently benign, requiring no treatment with self-resolution. We hope you enjoy this lecture
