I felt like I had contributed to Katie’s care. The nurse thanked me for my help and as I was drawing up the saline Katie’s mother smiled at me and told me I would never forget this experience. She and her husband were both very thankful to the staff as they were leaving the hospital when Katie was being transferred. In that moment I felt a part of the team and I was happy that the nurse let me get involved with something that I was competent with and capable of completing successfully under supervision. I think looking back I should have taken initiative and gone to my preceptor before entering the room, so she could have informed and prepared me for what I was about to see.

Therefore the hematocrit must remain above 10% for sufficient oxygen to reach the body’s cells. The key to treating a patient suffering from Hypovolemia is to maintain a balance between the urine output and the hematocrit percentage. Hypothesis or research question: I believe that a saline solution alternating on and off will maintain the urine flow rate and the hematocrit percentage longer than a patient administered with a constant saline drip of the same rate (mL/min) and concentration (mMol/L). This process would temporarily halt the dilution of hematocrit. The urine flow rate would begin to fall due to a lack of solution diffusing into the blood stream; however it should be able to fall for a short time before hitting critical levels.
I also help classmates with their English work. I go to the nursing home with my friend.

Brain cells will quickly deteriorate and die without the presence of oxygen and if the heart is restored, the immune system removes the dead brain cells by using free radicals, which causes further brain damage when not contained properly. With the newly developed knowledge of induced hypothermia, doctors say that patients have 3.5 times better chance of fully recovering from cardiac arrest with zero neurological damage. One reason that chilling the body in a controlled environment has become so successful is that it can counter the effects of neuroexcitation, which causes the nerves to become excited, by keeping homeostasis of calcium and glutamate because a major influx of calcium and glutamate is very toxic to nerve cells. Another important system that is altered by induced hypothermia is the immune system. The low body temperature from the cooling pads causes the immune system to slow down.
