Over the Christmas break I was introduced to the Nurse Educator in the ICU at Toronto Western, I followed up with her in January and was able to complete a number of observational shifts in the ICU to enhance learning and understanding of what is required to work in a CC setting. Currently, I am completing my 3rd year community placement at The Hospital for Sick Children, and have reapplied to complete my 4th year consolidation there. I selected Operating Room and Perioperative care as my first choice of units to be placed. By completing my consolidation in the AC or CC areas I will gain valuable experience which will facilitate in procuring a position in these areas after graduation. I have also applied for a summer position at the hospital as a clinical extern, which will hopefully assist in gain a consolidation position at SickKids in year 4.
I have been a smoker for over 10 years and even though I have a fear of Cancer I continued to smoke. Almost every two weeks I would perform a self -breast exam on myself just to make sure I didn’t feel any changes. One day I did a breast exam on myself and noticed a change in my breast tissue; this had me very worried. I called my DR to make an appointment, however they asked questions with symptoms I didn’t have. They asked was I 40 and had a mammogram screening, did I see blood from my chest, and any history.

When we were on the way home I told my mom that I wanted to check in school because I had lost now almost two full days of school.

She is the main carer for her husband, who is currently staying at a care home until Gladys is discharged from hospital. Gladys admitted to the nurse that she had been experiencing regular chest pains for some time; however, she had been self-administering aspirin to herself, rather than go to the doctor. As I observed, the nurse explained to Gladys that she should have gone to the doctor straight away rather than self-medicate and stated that Gladys would need an angiogram to confirm a diagnosis and assess any trauma sustained. She also gave Gladys a copy of The Eatwell Plate and stated that Gladys would need to lose weight in order to prevent the event from happening again,
My selected patient was a 22-year-old lady, Emma (pseudonym), who came to see me at the outpatient clinic for the follow-up appointment about her psoriasis. She had been diagnosed and treated as mild psoriasis for 10 years with a moderate response. Although her lesions were mainly limited to upper and lower limbs, her lesions often flared up, due to physical trauma and stress. Additionally, she was very self-conscious about her psoriasis and would like to discuss the referral to a dermatologist for further treatments. Emma was chosen for a discussion as a part of a monthly conference of the
This is when the client wheeled up to me, asked who I was, and stated she was having a difficult morning.

While mammograms are one of the best known tools for early detection of breast cancer, the new guidelines say doctors no longer need to do breast exams during women 's checkups. Dr. Michelle Sahinler, a Grace Health System gynecologist, says women should do a breast self-exam monthly, and their doctor should still do a yearly exam. “I’ve detected a lump in the last year in a patient who ended up having breast cancer,” she says.

Respiratory Acidosis My topic for my paper is Respiratory acidosis. The article I chose in relation to my patient in ICU was Interpreting Arterial Blood Gases by Georgina Casey. I chose this article because it is informative and helpful to me as a soon to be graduating nurse. Throughout this paper I will give a brief description of my patient, the pathophysiology of respiratory acidosis, the article summary and describe how this is helpful to me as a beginner nurse. My Patient My patient was a 70-year-old female who came in for a scheduled mitral valve repair.
Difficulties from spondylolysis plagued me for years in my teens. When the discomfort first began, I presumptuously told myself I remained tough enough to continue to play baseball through the pain; however, the soreness worsened, I needed to wear a back brace, and required several months of rest to heal. The downtime proved almost as painful as the injury itself. I felt well after this recovery period, except just as physical therapy ended, the achiness returned; a CT scan revealed not one, but two unhealed fractures that needed to be surgically repaired. During the weeks after surgery, I relied on a walker, and my pessimistic attitude caused many mental obstacles, one of which questioned my capability to be the athlete I was prior to my injury.
