There is wide-spread anxiety about this procedure, but it is usually simple and safe. It does entail insertion of a needle, and it is therefore uncomfortable. Also, about 25 percent of the people who undergo this procedure experience some headache after the fluid is removed, but it is server only about five percent of the cases. The procedure is difficult to perform and may need to be done under x-ray guidance if the person is extremely obese or has had pervious back surgery.

A variety of devices and techniques are available for IV therapy such as an infusion pump, syringe pump, mini infusion pump and IV piggyback/tandem. Large volumes of fluid require an infusion pump this is so the nursing staff can control both the rate and amount of fluid or medication that is given to a patient. The amount of fluid or medication that needs to be delivered to a patient can be set on an hourly basis over a period of hours in total, or until the bag of fluid has finished and another one hung up (Koutoukidis, Stainton, Hughson, 2013, p 452). An infusion pump could be used for a dehydrated patient that will require more than one bag of fluids. Using an infusion pump to control the amount of fluid/medication the patient is to receive also assists in preventing circulatory overload (Koutoukidis et al, 2013, p 452).

However, key findings indicate that 13% of patients who fall in the healing center after elective orthopedic surgery maintain harm and 3% experience more serious outcomes such as head injury, and demise (Mandl et al., 2013). The recommendation is that further research could investigate conceivable varieties in dangers and advantages of CPNB Continually Peripheral Nerve Blocks (especially the fall hazard) based on the individual client’s characteristics for example, preoperative practical condition, restorative comorbidities, or the dosage or other type of anesthetic used. Neuromuscular assessment post-femoral nerve block: Nursing (RN) implications on fall prevention, I have ascertained that nurses play a key role in neurovascular assessments and tend to act as surveillance systems.
With the help of the bedside nurse we analyzed why I blew two veins and a patient. I walked through the procedure to determine what I did wrong. I identified a critical flaw on my needle insertion technique. The day before I inserted the needle in a 10-15 degree angle, and after inserting the needle I leveled out the needle and pushed the needle forward until I saw blood in the catheter. At this point I pushed the catheter into the vein which led to a successful placement of an IV catheter.
This treatment is a better, safer, and less painful way to administer topical drugs. The reason for this is simple, there are no needles being injected into the body which could cause infection, the treatment is noninvasive, and the delivery of the drug in enhanced by this

Mr Brown has now come out of surgery at 9:00pm and will be under the care of the night shift nursing staff on the ward. First priority is to asses Mr Brown’s condition to ensure he is stable and comfortable. Hospital policy should be employed in regard to frequency of observations typical every quarter to half hour depending on his condition. Observations should include the ADDS chart (BP, pulse, temperature, pain and others) moreover because of Mr Brown’s COPD, special attention should be given to his respiratory rate, breathing sounds and his O2 Saturation to prevent any critical situations occurring due to COPD (Walker, 2012). Furthermore because of Mr Browns COPD, his oxygen flow rate via nasal prongs may need to be altered accordingly
