This Week- US National Nurse Discussion

This week's episode is the continuation of the previous week's discussion on having a National Nurse position for the US. The discussion started off last week with the definition of a national nurse, the history of how the idea came about, and the importance of having a national nurse for the nursing profession and the community at large.

The discussion moves on into the presence of an international nurse for the US which is the chief nurse of the public health service. Though this position represent US nurses in international conventions, most of the public is unaware of this and there is only so much that the person in position can do as opposed to the proposed national nurse position. They also touched on how giving future nurses, the present nursing students, the vision of pushing this movement forward as well as providing resources they can follow up on for better understanding of the issue.

Tip This Week- Caffeine Overdoses Toxicology Segment

Caffeine is a stimulant, producing alertness, restlessness and hyperactivity, but it’s also a cardiovascular stimulant, causing tachycardia and an increase in blood pressure.

Other than coffee, drinks containing caffeine include tea, cola soft drinks and energy drinks. The most common symptoms following the ingestion of large doses are nausea and vomiting, which can be severe and protracted. Caffeine is a diuretic so consuming large amounts can lead to dehydration. With very large doses, more serious effects can occur, including dysrhythmias such as supraventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, and ventricular tachycardia, seizures, metabolic acidosis, low potassium levels and cardiovascular collapse.

for more information on caffeine overdoses, follow the links below.

Tip This Week- Antidepressants

Moving on with the our multi segment on commonly prescribed medications for age groups, this week's tip will be on Antidepressants, the most commonly prescribed medication for individuals aged 20-59.

Antidepressants are usually taken every day. It can take up to a month to see the full results of taking an antidepressant. You may need to try different kinds or amounts (dosages) to find the antidepressant that works best for you. Antidepressants are typically taken for at least 6 to 12 months. In some cases, patients and their doctors may decide that antidepressants are needed for a longer time.

Chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters are needed for normal brain function. Antidepressants help people who have depression by making these natural chemicals more available to the brain.

For more information on antidepressants, follow up on the resources provided below.

Tip This Week- CNS Stimulants

CNS stimulants are among the line of drugs that are most commonly prescribed for children aged 6 to 19.

A dramatic increase in the use of stimulants occurred in the 1950s associated with the development of other psychotropic medications, including antipsychotics and antidepressants. Although stimulant medication is commonly used for intellectually normal children with ADHD, stimulant use in children with cognitive deficits has emerged over the last decade as well-designed studies demonstrating efficacy have been published.

The side effects of stimulant medication include appetite suppression with possible weight loss, which, when excessive, can decrease height growth. The cardiovascular system is also stimulated, including heart rate and blood pressure. Children on stimulant medication should be seen by their physicians at least every four to six months to monitor height, weight, and cardiovascular parameters.

Tip This Week- Bath Salts

Since September 2010, poison centers have been hearing about a new synthetic drug known as “bath salts” that has arrived on the drug scene. This new drug is being sold over the internet and in convenience stores, gas stations, gift shops, tobacco stores, head shops, and other local establishments under such brand names as “Ivory Wave”, “Vanilla Sky”, “Red Dove”, “Zoom”, “Bloom”, “Cloud Nine”, “Blue Silk”, “Ocean Snow”, “White Lightening”, “Scarface” and “Hurricane Charlie”. The packages are labeled “bath salts” and “not for human consumption” to disguise the true intent of the product, but they are being promoted and used as cocaine substitutes.

Find out more about bath salts in this episode of the Nursing Show with Lisa Booze of the Maryland Poison Center.

Tip This Week- Bronchodilators and Nursing Considerations

According to the CDC Data on mostly prescribed drugs according to age, Bronchodilators are the leading prescription meds for children aged 0 to 11.

These medications are used to treat patients with asthma. They work by relaxing the smooth muscles that line the airways. This makes the airways open wider and allows air to leave the lungs. These drugs also are used to relieve breathing problems associated with emphysema, chronic bronchitis, and other lung diseases.

Some bronchodilators are inhaled, using a nebulizer or an inhalation aerosol. Others are taken as injections or by mouth. Most are available only by prescription, but a few, such as ephedrine, can be bought over the counter. Examples of bronchodilators are albuterol (Proventil, Ventolin), epinephrine (Primatene),ipratropium (Atrovent), metaproterenol (Alupent, Metaprel), and terbutaline (Brethine)

Some side effects that nurses might take into consideration with the use of bronchodilators include dry and irritation of the throat and dry mouth. It is important to advise the patient to take sips of water, gargling or rinsing the mouth after each dose.

Tip This Week- Stroke Prevention and Awareness

The best way to manage a disease is to prevent it. The same thing goes with stroke. One way to do it is living a healthy lifestyle through proper diet, exercise. For patients who are highly predisposed to stroke, it is important that they set up attainable goals that will help them modify their lifestyle, make that a habit and make that habit permanent. Proper management of non-modifiable factors for stroke like will also decrease an individual's chances of having a stroke since the disease will be well under control and prevent it to progressing at a further advanced stage as in a stroke.

Overall, educating the public and making them aware of the pathophysiology of stroke, the causes, risk factors and what happens after a stroke will make them more conscious of their family's health practices and their own.

Tip of The Week- Psychological Assessment Review

Psychological assessment is basically gathering information or testing a person to evaluate a mental health complaint. It explores the patient's personal history including the presenting problem, when it started, medical and psychological history, substance abuse, mental status evaluation, and more. In assessing behavioral or psychological patients, nurses should keep in mind the communication techniques for these types of patients watch out for defense mechanisms displayed by the person interviewed and be able to get through those barriers for a more effective assessment.

To get the most out of the interview, nurses should start with open ended questions and proceed with leading questions focusing on the patient's feelings. Since the mental and emotional stability of the patient can not be ensured, it is best to conduct the assessment process in a safe environment such as the nurse will not be in a cornered area and the objects that can pose physical threat are not within the patient's reach.

For more tips and interview techniques for psychological patients, nurses and nursing students can follow the links below.

Tip of The Week- Acetaminophen (Tylenol) Medication Review

Acetaminophen, more popularly known as Tylenol is one of the over the counter drugs that can be found in most American households. This medication is mainly used for minor pain and aches and for fever reduction. Since this is a common drug taken by most people, nurses should be aware of the basics of this drug to be able to provide the correct information to patients and avoid overdosing or under dosing on the drug.

Knowing information like how it works, its interactions with other drugs, and contraindications is also necessary to avoid unwanted side effects that can arise. For more information on the medication Tylenol, nurses and nursing students can follow the links below.

Tip of The Week- Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics and Nursing Care

Pharmacokinetics is defined as the process by which a drug is absorbed, distributed, metabolized, and eliminated by the body. In other words, it is the study of how the drug moves into the body from the point of administration as it goes into the different parts of the body then broken down and later on released via the involved organs involved in the excretory system.

Pharmacodynamics on the other hand is defined as the study of the biochemical and physiological effects of drugs and the mechanisms of their actions, including the correlation of their actions and effects with their chemical structure. It is the study of the effects of substances or drugs to the body.

As nurses, it is important to have knowledge of the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of drugs to better understand how they work in the body and how they affect physiological processes. This knowledge can be applied in assessing our patients on their response to medications and to better explain to patients how their medications work and why it is important to adhere to them.

For more information on these topics, nurses and nursing students can follow the links below.

Tip of The Week- K2 and Designer Drugs with Toxicology Specialist Lisa Booze

K2, Fake weed, spice, and zohai are just some of the names given to synthetic marijuana. It is a chemical that is intended to substitute marijuana and mimics its effects only more potent. It may be a mixture of herbal and spice plant products, but it is sprayed with a potent psychotropic drug and likely contaminated with an unknown toxic substance that is causing many adverse effects. Unlike marijuana, reactions from using K2 include agitation, anxiety, tachycardia, and elevated blood pressure.

There are also synthetic/designer drugs out there like K2 that are contaminated with unknown substances and untested substances making it difficult to identify and predict its effects. Nurses should continuously assess these patients for unexpected adverse reactions and document their findings. Coordination with poison control centers and providing them the information gathered from these patients will help in providing effective nursing interventions and treatment and also to have reference for same cases that may be encountered in the future.

Community-Acquired MRSA Becoming More Common

DEA Preventing Nursing Home Patients From Getting Pain Medication

-----------------------------------

Tip of The Week- Review of Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus

MRSA, otherwise known as methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, is a type of staphylococcus bacteria that is resistant to certain types of antibiotics. It can either be hospital associated (HA-MRSA) which happens in the healthcare setting or community acquired (CA- MRSA) which is passed through skin contact with infected people.

MRSA may present as a skin infection or a bump which may be red, swollen, painful, warm to touch, with pus or drainage and accompanied by fever.

The incidence of MRSA in both hospital and community setting lies in proper infection control and good hand hygiene. Some of the things that nurses should remember when it comes to the prevention of the spread of MRSA in the healthcare setting includes, wound and drainage precautions, disinfection of articles contaminated with wound drainage and practice of proper handwashing in between patients.

Improved Jaundice Screening Can Protect Newborns

Children of Working Mothers Have Unhealthier Lifestyles

Health Experts Support Tools to Prevent Preterm Birth

-----------------------------------

Tip of The Week- Care and Interventions of Newborn Jaundice

Most preterm and almost 50% of full term newborns present with jaundice, a yellow discoloration of the skin and sclera of the eyes. The yellowish hue comes from bilirubin, a substance produced from break down of red blood cells, when it reaches a blood level greater than approximately 2.5 mg/dL. This bilirubin is excreted in the stool via the liver, in the case of infants, this process takes more time resulting to accumulation in the skin. Jaundice appearing about 2-3 days after birth, called physiologic jaundice is normal in newborns,however, interventions like phototherapy should be instituted to help the infant's body excrete the excess bilirubin.

There are also disorders that can cause bilirubin levels to increase in newborns like blood type incompatibilities, prematurity, polycythemia, etc. If left unresolved, bilirubin may continually increase and cause serious complications such as cerebral palsy, deafness, and kernicterus ( brain damage from very high bilirubin levels).

Infants receiving phototherapy, the first line intervention for jaundice, requires special attention to avoid chilling or burning of the skin. Intake and output should be monitored and carefully documented, including continuous assessment for skin breakdown and bilirubin lab values should always be updated. Serum bilirubin levels above 25 mg/dL or higher at any time is a medical emergency and the infant should be evaluated immediately for exchange transfusion.

Tip of the Week-- Ciguatera Fish Poisoning

A ToxTidbits Segment with Lisa Booze from the Maryland Poison Center

About Ciguatera

Ciguatera fish poisoning (or ciguatera) is an illness caused by eating fish that contain toxins produced by a marine microalgae called Gambierdiscus toxicus. People who have ciguatera may experience nausea, vomiting, and neurologic symptoms such as tingling fingers or toes.

They also may find that cold things feel hot and hot things feel cold. Ciguatera has no cure. Symptoms usually go away in days or weeks but can last for years. People who have ciguatera can be treated for their symptoms.

Fish like barracuda, black grouper, blackfin snapper, cubera snapper, dog snapper, greater amberjack, hogfish, horse-eye jack, king mackerel, and yellowfin grouper have been known to carry ciguatoxins.

----------------------------------- Tip of the Week-- Assessment and Care of IV Lines

Common complications with IV catheter placement include:

Infiltration - Leakage of the IV fluid or medication into the surrounding tissues. If the infiltration is caught early enough and a small amount of infiltrate had leaked, the problem is not usually a cause of long term issues. Discontinue the IV infusion, remove the catheter and initiate IV access elsewhere. Extravasation - is related to infiltration but is a more serious complication where the fluid or medication leaking into the tissues is a vessicant or highly concentrated solution. Common medications in this category include Dopamine, Diazapam, Calcium Chloride and D-50. Even small amounts of extravasation into surrounding tissues can cause localized cellular breakdown and tissue necrosis.
Phlebitis - is the inflammation of the vein itself and is most often caused by irritation due to long term IV access in that location (days). Some medications of a more alkaline or acidic nature can also irritate the vein and rarely a bacterial infection may be the cause, as well.
Infection - Infection related to improper cleaning of the site prior to insertion of the catheter or due to migration of bacteria along the cather into the tissues during extended IV access (days). Hypersensitivity to Medication - Allergic reaction to the medication administered. Can be seen in meds such as IV antibiotics but may happen with any IV fluid or medication. May be localized to the site or systemic.

ANNANurse.org website

Link to Nursing Show Article on Free ANNA CNE Resources

Nephrology Nursing Philosophy (from ANNA website)

". . . the role of nephrology nursing is to assess the real or threatened impact of renal disease on the individual as well as to diagnose and treat his/her responses to this problem. Within this context, ANNA also believes in the commitment of nursing to assist each individual to achieve an optimum level of functioning, whether it be in preventing renal disease, arresting further dysfunction, or rehabilitating the individual throughout the life cycle. In order to achieve these goals, we believe that practitioners within the field of nephrology nursing should set forth high standards of patient care that are continually updated.

We believe that through the continued education of nurses in the field of nephrology, we can assure high quality patient care. We further believe that a sound educational program is necessary to develop, maintain, and augment competence in practice. Because research is essential for the advancement of nursing science, new concepts must be developed and tested to sustain the continued growth and maturation of nephrology nursing.

We believe in the team approach to patient care and embrace interdisciplinary communication and collaboration as being essential to the achievement of the highest attainable level of cost-effective, quality patient care. As members of the nephrology team, it is our duty to respond to issues affecting our practice in both private and public sectors.

----------------------------------- Tip of the Week-- Interview with Jason Jwoytas on Rehab Nursing

What is Rehabilitation Nursing?

Rehabilitation nurses help individuals affected by chronic illness or physical disability to adapt to their disabilities, achieve their greatest potential and work toward productive, independent lives. They take a holistic approach to meeting patients’ medical, vocational, educational, environmental and spiritual needs.

Rehabilitation nurses begin to work with individuals and their families soon after the onset of a disabling injury or chronic illness. They continue to provide support in the form of patient and family education and empower these individuals when they go home or return to work or school. The rehabilitation nurse often teaches patients and their caregivers how to access systems and resources.

Rehabilitation nursing is a philosophy of care, not a work setting or a phase of treatment. Rehabilitation nurses base their practice on rehabilitative and restorative principles by:

managing complex medical issues collaborating with other specialists providing ongoing patient/caregiver education setting goals for maximal independence establishing plans of care to maintain optimal wellness

Tip of the Week-- Pain Assessment Tools

Pain is often called the fifth vital sign. This places it in its proper place alongside pulse, respirations, blood pressure and temperature that a nurse needs to assess regularly on a patient. Just like the other vital signs, the proper assessment tools make tracking and treating a patient's pain much easier and more reliable.

Because pain assessment is a subjective measure, the patient is a necessary component of the process. What causes one person to writhe in pain may barely break a sweat in another. However, when measured against the patient's own standards, it is much easier to trend the patient's pain level and to be proactive in managing that pain.

Use the links and tools below to look at some of the common myths about pain management and also review the available assessment tools and scales you might use for different patient populations. I have also included the links to my articles on pediatric pain assessment and management.

Tip of the Week-- Gastritis and Peptic Ulcer Disease Review

Gastritis is not a single disease, but several different conditions that all have inflammation of the stomach lining. Gastritis can be caused by drinking too much alcohol, prolonged use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen, or infection with bacteria such as Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). Sometimes gastritis develops after major surgery, traumatic injury, burns, or severe infections. Certain diseases, such as pernicious anemia, autoimmune disorders, and chronic bile reflux, can cause gastritis as well.

The most common symptoms are abdominal upset or pain. Other symptoms are belching, abdominal bloating, nausea, and vomiting or a feeling of fullness or of burning in the upper abdomen. Blood or "coffee grounds" emesis or black, tarry stools may be a sign of bleeding in the stomach, which may indicate a serious problem requiring immediate medical attention.

Gastritis is diagnosed through one or more medical tests:

Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. this procedure looks at the stomach lining, checking for inflammation and may remove a tiny sample of tissue for tests. Blood test. Check red blood cell count to see whether the patient has anemia, caused by chronic blood loss from a bleeding ulcer. Stool test. This test checks for the presence of blood in the patient's stool, a sign of GI bleeding. Stool test may also be used to detect the presence of H. pylori in the digestive tract.

Treatment usually involves taking drugs to reduce stomach acid and thereby help relieve symptoms and promote healing. (Stomach acid irritates the inflamed tissue in the stomach.) Avoidance of certain foods, beverages, or medicines may also be recommended.

If gastritis is caused by an infection, that problem may be treated as well. For example, the doctor might prescribe antibiotics to clear up H. pylori infection. Once the underlying problem disappears, the gastritis usually does too

Tip of the Week-- ECG Reading (pt 2)

Part One of ECG Reading Review here

Reading ECGs is like learning to read a new language. It's not impossible, it just requires the nursing student to wrap their head around a new way of looking at things. There's no better way to do this than to practice, practice, practice.

This section of the ECG reading review will cover some of the common arrythmias and some tricks that you can use to recognize them. This will use the basic steps covered in the earlier segment linked above so if you haven't listened to that segment, I urge you to do so before listening to today's show.

This episode will look at identifying the three degrees of heart block, including both Type I and Type II third degree heart blocks. There will also be discussions on the ways to recognize some of the differences in the supra ventricular tachycardias such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and SVT for unknown causes.

Use the linked sites below to continue your review of ECG reading and I will also recommend some good review guides available from Amazon. If you know of some other good resources, leave a link to them in the comments below this post.
