The four main ways to perform a hysterectomy are known as total abdominal hysterectomy (TAH), vaginal hysterectomy, laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH), and laparoscopic supracervical hysterectomy (LSH). In TAH, the surgeon makes an approximate 5 inch incision through the lower abdomen from the belly button to the pubis or along the bikini line to remove the entire uterus and cervix. This will cause more pain and a longer recovery with a larger scar compared to other procedures. In vaginal hysterectomy, the surgeon makes a small incision above the vagina to remove the uterus and/or cervix, if needed, resulting in a faster healing time. LAVH is similar to the vaginal hysterectomy with the removal of the uterus and cervix except it adds the use of a laparoscope.
Angioplasty starts just like angiogram, and it takes many steps. First, the patient will be injected with local anesthetic where the catheter will be inserted. Then the doctor will make a puncture in the skin using a needle to insert the catheter into the blood vessels under x-ray image control. Angioplasty is usually preformed through the artery in the groin ( upper thigh), but it could be preformed through the arteries in the wrist or the arm. When the catheter reaches the heart, a liquid dye that is visible in x-ray picture is released so that the blocked area could be visualized.
The bolus then goes to the pharynx where swallowing occurs. During deglutition in the pharynx there is a “flexible flap of elastic cartilage that’s function is to keep food out of the lower respiratory passages” called the epiglottis (Human). The bolus then goes to through the esophagus where segmentation(circular muscle contractions of esophagus that allows the bolus to mix) and peristalsis(longitudinal muscle contractions of the esophagus that allows the bolus to be push down bolus to the stomach) happens. Then it goes through “ringlike muscles that contract/close a bodily passage or opening” called sphincters (Sphincter). The bolus goes through one called the gastroesophageal between the end of the esophagus and the beginning of the stomach in order to enter the stomach.
When I signed in, they asked all my personal questions in private, and made sure everything was HIPAA compliant. I was a little nervous about my TB test, but when I told the medical assistant I was in school to become one myself all my nerves were at ease. The medical assistant was very nice and even talked me through every step she was performing. She explained why you ask certain questions, and how to perform a TB test. I plan to follow her example, and do the
The patient had been previously operated 3 months back for sub-occipital craniotomy with a right sided ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt prior to the definitive surgery. Tumour marker studies showed a high level of MIB1 (an antibody against a protein called Ki-67, expressed in proliferating cells) of 35%. Examination revealed the patient was febrile but conscious and oriented with normal movements of all 4 limbs but a positive kerning’s sign. The hematological investigations showed leucocytosis (count of 15,700) and cerebrospinal fluid examination was consistent with the picture of bacterial meningitis. Intravenous antibiotics vancomycin and meropenem were started after verifying renal status.
I checked my patients one by one to see if they were stable and responsive. With Nurse Dre Dre, the night nurse, I got to do suctioning, tracheotomy care and start feedings. I feel like I’m getting confidently effective with my communication skills everyday that my I’m learning and enhancing my nursing skills. I was able to educate a family member who was not wearing protective equipment inside an isolation room the importance of wearing one to prevent the spread of infections and promote wellness.
Today, I mainly collaborated with my nurse preceptor and the CNA. I was so excited and pleased to say that my preceptor allowed me to do almost every nursing task and he would assist me whenever needed. Adam and I worked together and efficiently by assisting one another in performing assessments. For example, I would perform vitals and respiratory exams while he performed the cardiovascular exams, then we would each chart our own findings. Also, I was able to prepare all of my clients’ medications and administer them independently; however, although I performed the three rights and six checks while passing medications I would still have him double check everything before administering them just to be safe, especially with medications that I was not familiar with.
Unfortunately, that baby passed away. Everyone was supportive in ensuring, that everyone was okay after the baby had passed away. In addition to this experience, my preceptor, Jennifer, assisted and allowed me to do many things on my first day. Tasks that I completed included, neonatal assessments and IV medication administrations. On the second day, Jennifer, allowed me to do more, such as paternal nutrition and lipid administration, and I got to remove my patient’s replogle.
We both persevered and persisted through the entire process. We trust each other to make crucial decisions and discoveries. When the quarantine is lifted and after I endure seven intense surgeries I will finally understand how much my mom and I’s relationship has deepened. She took time to stay with me and even encouraged me to walk when I felt like a simple step was impossible. She pushed to have the best care and doctors possible.
The surgeon will create a small pouch at the top of the stomach using surgical staples. Next, he will connect this smaller pouch directly to the middle of the small intestine (called the jejunum). This causes the food to bypass the lower part of the stomach and the first part of the small intestine (called the duodenum). Historically, the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass was does as an open procedure, which means the surgeon makes a large incision in the outer stomach wall to access the abdominal cavity. Today, the laparoscopic procedure is more common for those who qualify.
I taught the patient that the first three days, she will see rubra that is red drainage and from day three to the eleventh day, she would see light pink to brown tinged blood and from day eleven, she would see white or cream like discharge and I also informed her to notify the healthcare provider immediately if the color changes from white to red. The use of warm water and squirt bottle was also stressed to the patient and I also advised her to wipe from front to back to prevent herself from getting infections. During the postpartum period 50% to 70% of women experience postpartum blues which are normal and
