We have one Surgery tech and one surgery recovery tech for every surgery. Since I am overseeing the patients recovery, I need make sure the patient is monitored until awake and able to stand. Usually the signs I may encounter are shivering, vocal sounds and urination. The Dr. will have us give an injectable pain medication if patient is showing signs of pain. Some other signs I may look for are vomiting, low temperature, and thrashing in the cage.
Alice is a very polite and professional candidate. All though a lot of administrative experience has been in healthcare, she is interested in branching out of the healthcare environment. She most recently completed a temporary assignment for Allied Health Group as an Administrative Office Assistant. In this role, she would run daily reports, handle requests via phone and in person, and maintained the database. Prior to that, she had worked for Comprehensive Dermatology as a Medical Administrative Assistant.
My overall experience was very good and that experience is one that I will never forget, because I’ve learned so much just by being there and having to do actual assessment and vitals on real people. Plus, it was my first time in the working force and background. I would absolutely love to go back and revisit them all again. I had two particular residents of my own personally that I assisted twice a week. One of my residents had Alzheimer’s
Assessment is a fundamental component of any nurse’s role. However, from what I observed today it seems particularly vital to the PACU nurse. While they do provide interventions, the majority of PACU nurses’ time is spent assessing their patients and documenting their findings. Patients in the PACU have undergone the significant stressor of surgery under general anesthesia and they have the potential for very serious complications. It is up to the PACU nurse to observe if the patient is declining and act quickly and appropriately.
During percussion, the nurse strikes the chest to determine the condition of the underlying tissues. The nurse percusses the lobes of the lungs and over the heart to detect any abnormalities. During auscultation, the nurse places her stethoscope over the lungs and heart to detect abnormal breath sound e.g. stridor, rales, rhonchi etc. Assessment of the respiratory system will enable the nurse to detect the respiratory problems and to make good diagnosis for the patients.
Another equipment that I saw was Vizilite. Vitilite is an equipment that is used to detect oral cancer. I think that this just show how much we have advanced with technology. Overall, my experiences at the dental office was really good. Everyone there worked as a team to get things done.
With nursing, I have so many options and specialties to choose from. With each specialty, I can continue to expand my knowledge within those specialties.

The ER team consists of nurses, physicians, medical and radiology technicians and more, working in unison to stabilize the patient who makes an unplanned visit to the ER for urgent health care. Emergency rooms are filled with high technology equipment to treat the wide variety of disease. The department is rarely quite as they provide primary and quick care to patients. Emergency doctors should exhibit attributes of professionalism in the hospitals where their practice is based including altruism, accountability, duty, honor, and
I am so excited to be able to help others heal, and understand the processes in which healing takes place. Being an Anesthesiologist will allow me to get a front row seat in watching surgeries and other medical operations, plus I would be able to assist the operator with any needs he may have. Another reason why my interest level has gone up is because this job actually pays more than I was expecting, I am so excited to be able get paid a lot for the things that I love to do. I feel pretty prepared with the route I am taking to become an Anesthesiologist. I am already emphasizing my courses on math and science because those are the topics that I really enjoy.
After observing these providers, I became increasingly intrigued by the profession. After a lot of research into this profession and shadowing multiple anesthetists, I knew I had found my calling. During my time at the Children’s Hospital, I learned that the Anesthesiologist Assistant is a skilled medical professional who works as part of the anesthesia care team in the operating room and receives direction from an Anesthesiologist. They have an extensive amount of training in the induction and maintenance of different anesthetics and also advanced monitoring techniques that allow them to keep the patient safe throughout the procedure. They are skilled providers who have training in inserting invasive catheters used for monitoring patient’s vitals, trained in advanced airway and life support techniques, and prepare an anesthetic plan with the licensed Anesthesiologist.
With this being said, everyone should have some form of understanding of medical terminology. Whether it is on the news or from a drug advertisement, everyone has encountered medical terminology at some point in his or her life. As a future pharmacist, I will have to confront patients of various backgrounds. Even if some patients are well educated, people do not have the same level of comprehension of medical terminology as a health care professional. As a pharmacist, it will be my duty to educate and counsel patients with their use of medication, and understanding medical terminology plays a huge role in this.
I had no idea what a physician assistant does even though I have two at my doctor’s office, so I decided to do some research about the profession. The first thing I discovered was that a physician assistant only required a master’s degree and paid very well. This immediately interested me because I do not want to go into a great amount of debt and want to be able pay off what I had quickly. The next appealing thing I discovered about physician assistants is that their hours were very flexible which is essential when raising a family. I come from a very large family and family is a part of who I am.
I am not just interested in becoming a Physician Assistant; I dream of, and am driven to become one. I have been fascinated by the medical field as long as I can remember. I had the opportunity to begin scribing for a physician and absolutely loved the patient interaction, the variety of duties that had to be accomplished and the fact that for some people a fifteen to twenty minute appointment may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of a day or life, but to those who were being seen, their lives are instantly changed for the better. I learned such a vast amount of knowledge every single day I worked there. I grew to love the medical field more and more and am confident I was meant to work my hardest to be able to provide care to patients as my life occupation; specifically rural areas like the one I grew up in.
