I am a registered nurse and currently hold an associates degree. I am actively enrolled in TESU working towards my Bachelors of Science in Nursing (BSN) which is the degree most employers seek when hiring nurses. Once I have earned my BSN, which will be in the summer of 2016, my plan is to then take certain certification courses. I am very passionate about learning wound, ostomy and incontinence care (WOC) and will take the classes and state exams I need to earn my certification shortly after graduating TESU. Wound, ostomy and incontinence care needs are growing, especially in the home care setting, and this will allow me to apply for positions that are more tailored to what I wish to specialize in. In an article published by Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, a study was done on the outcomes of wound healing on home health care patients, which reported that wounds cared for by a WOC nurse resulted in 78.5% of wounds healing compared with 36.3% when care was provided by general staff nurses (Westra, Bliss, Savik, Hou, & Borchert, 2013, p. 135, 136).
However, the highest percentage of cancellations are due to shortage of hospital beds based on the record of ICU trauma patients that has used the majority of the beds and for those reasons that is what led to cause the shortage. Discuss the indications found in Table 15-1 and their effect on the health care organizations efficiency in elective surgery. Due to those shortages it has cause many individuals with major medical conditions to delay their treatments or possibly cause a potential health threat that could be alarming to one’s condition if left untreated. The problem within the hospital is to minimize the concern within the ICU so that there is enough time to schedule surgeries for
The operating rooms are quoted to resemble Hell. According to Jenny Goellnitz(1862) “field hospitals are hell on earth. The surgeon would stand over the operating table for hours without a let up. Men screamed in delirium, calling for loved ones, while others laid pale and quiet with an effect of shock.” In order to amputate one 's body part.
SEPSIS/SEPTIC SHOCK - 2013 Brittney Bonsall Xavier University July 27, 2015 Pathophysiology questions (50 points) Adv Nursing questions (85 points) Pharmacology (30 points) CASE PRESENTATION Emergency Department Mr. Roberts, a 72-year-old man, arrived in the emergency department unconscious, with stab wounds to the upper-right abdomen and lower-right chest that were sustained in his home while fighting off a burglar. The paramedics secured two large-bore intravenous (IV) catheters in his right and left antecubital spaces and infused Lactated Ringer’s (LR) solution wide open in both sites. An endotracheal tube was inserted, and ventilation with a resuscitation bag with 100% oxygen was begun. Pressure dressings to both wounds were secured.
Conclude your paper with your recommendation of which of the model(s) would best be applied to the research problem and why? According to (“Anesthesia-E-ssential-October-1-2012,” n.d.), While patient-controlled IV absence of pain is normal and considered powerful to lower the danger of perioperative hypothermia, Canadian scientists set out to figure out whether temperature. Complete knee arthroplasty patients were randomly investigated and subjected to a system that frequently triggers perioperative hypothermia. Every one of the patients got bupivacaine spinal anaesthesia and intrathecal morphine; however half of them were secured with standard warm covers, while the other half wore outfits with convenient warming units that blow warmed air.
Introduction The twentieth century was a period introducing many breakthroughs in medicine. Large part of the medical discoveries and newly developed procedures of the mentioned time are influencing the illness treatment even today. The role of this paper is not to make an extensive overview on those discoveries but to focus the attention on the changes that occurred in the field of surgery. Typical surgical procedure involves the incision of the body in order to treat desired part leading to a lot of pain, possible blood loss, infections, scars, and long convalescence. The consequences mentioned might occur in even higher degree if the considered case is internal surgery.
Surgeries have become a routine process. Around fifteen million surgeries are performed a year. They put you under anesthesia, they operate, and you wake up with a little discomfort. However, there was a time where surgeries would happen while the patient was awake and conscious. They tried to keep the pain to a minimum with alcohol and hypnosis, but didn 't drastically change.

Justin is the registered nurse that has been given the handover for Kelly Malone’s postoperative care in the surgical unit. Kelly Malone is a 49 female patient who has had a septoplasty and a right ethmoidectomy. Justin is working with Kelly to identify Kelly’s needs in order for Kelly to be discharged from the hospital. Kelly’s postoperative observations were a temperature of 36.2 degrees celsius; heart rate of 68 beats per minute; respiratory rate of 18 breaths per minute, blood pressure of 111 systolic over 73 diastolic millimetres of mercury; oxygen saturation at 93 percent of room air and a self-rated pain score of two out of ten. Kelly has a history of ‘not being able to breathe well through her nose’ and a history of disturbed sleep.
Mr. A is admitted to the critical care unit post bowel resection, splenectomy, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and patient-ventilator dyssynchrony (PVD). He is an eighteen-year-old African American man who is placed on an IV infusion of Norcuron and Ativan. The major outcomes expected for Mr. A would be for him to be able to wean of the ventilator, be hemodynamically stable, heal adequately, tolerate his diet, have adequate bowel elimination, and be able to adjust to his life with optimal functioning. The problems that are to be manage include, being on the ventilator, being sedated, having an elevated temperature, having a low hemoglobin, post surgical bowel resection, splenectomy, hypoxia and diet intolerance.
