About Blogging For Your Noggin

Welcome to Blogging for your Noggin; a blog created by an intensive care educator that is passionate about ensuring that education is not only easy to understand, but entertaining in the process! Despite what the textbooks might say, medical and nursing concepts are not as difficult to understand as they may initially appear.943ee11bc7d7254b50842a15ea018e2b

You have come to the right place if:

  • You have ever read a medical textbook and wondered if the author published their work in gibberish
  • You have sat through a lecture where the presenter simply read what was on the slides word for word without further explanation 
  • You have asked someone to explain something to you only to find yourself more confused than before you asked the question
  • You have ever wondered why there is not just one simple, easy to access resource that will simplify the concepts of the medical and nursing world

Whether you are a student nurse, a graduate nurse, a postgraduate student nurse, a full-fledged speciality nurse or a doctor new to the world of speciality medicine; this blog has something for everyone! If you have a question about something not yet available on this blog, please click the “ask a question” tab and post your question to receive an answer. Your question may even be the inspiration for a new blog post that helps switch the lightbulb on for someone else!


Don’t forget to click the “follow blog” button located to the upper right or bottom of the screen (depending on your device) to be one of the first to know when new content becomes available!

  1. Might you consider writing about the use of oxygen please? Could you explain why hypoxic drive theory is now “debunked” and what theory replaces it? Could you give an overview of pulse oximetry and titrated oxygen delivery for acute illness / injury and in COPD? What is the mechanism of oxygen toxicity?
    Your blog is excellent reading. Thank you.
