Regular medical check-ups are vital for the human to be healthy and live a productive life. Hence, our university has organized this examination specifically for students. Upon completion of one of the annual body check-ups, I have realized that I have missed thorough gynecological examination. Firstly, I have visited our university doctor, and she directed me to the Republican Diagnostic Center by giving me a phone number of the Call center.

CLINICAL FINDINGS/TREATMENT My patient underwent surgery for repair of the COA by using a combination of end to end repair with use of an anterior patch technique. He came out of surgery on ventilator support and remained on the ventilator until he was cleared by the physician and he could maintain his own respiratory efforts and was clear of all other post-operative complications. We used a ServoI with the settings as follows: Vt 45ml, Ti .65, Peep 5cmH2O, RR 30, FiO2 40% ABG results: pH 7.41, PaCO2 30mmHg, PaO2 172mmHg, SaO2 99%, HCO3 21, BE 5.3 After ABG results the rate was decreased to 25/min and FiO2 was decreased to 30%. Cross clamping was required on three occasions. Cross clamping during this procedure is extremely important to note and time due to the complications.

The facility I am employed by does a "shift huddle" prior to every shift. All oncoming nurses, scrub technicians and unit clerks meet in the locker room and the shift supervisor goes over important information related to the unit, then a report sheet is passed out to each oncoming nurse with information about each patient currently on the labor and delivery unit. Next, the supervisor tells each nurse what their patient assignment is for that shift and anything else that needs to happen during the shift, such as stocking rooms, IV carts, equipment checks that need completed, etc. The last form of interdisciplinary communication is multidisciplinary rounds (Ohio University, 2018). This is when all members of the health care team caring for each patient including

Student nurse Kelvin placed a pulse ox on the patient immediately after returning to his room. He recorded the pulse ox reading, and placed the client back on two liters of oxygen via nasal cannula.
