(31 JANUARY – 17 FEBRUARY 2005, PICC, City of Manila)

DAY 1 (31 JANUARY 05) STEPS IN PASSING        Have a Right Attitude THINK POSITIVELY … have a Fresh Start KNOW what YOU WANT and HOW TO GET IT OVERVIEW OF ESSENTIAL CONCEPT TRY OUT Focus assessment 7 habits of SUCCESSFUL EXAMINEE

MOSBY – growth and development LIPPINCOTT – care of the Elderly and Communicable Disease DIGOXIN – monitor the creatinine… “ the TV DOESN’T look good to me” (DIGOXIN TOXICITY – nausea/vomiting, abdl cramps) Olive = butter CK – normalize 1 – 3 days after MI LDH - 10 – 14 days ATRIAL FLUTTER – SAW TOOTH PROCESS OF ELIMINATION      consider MASLOW’s H of NEEDS consider the COMPLICATION whether ACUTE CHRONIC ABCs SAFETY FIRST NSG PROCESS

– ALWAYS prioritize

MMR VACCINE – only vaccine for HIV pt. Pt on HEPARIN – APTT (N 30-40sec), therefore if INCREASE – bleeding POISON - nursing action in order : #1 CALL poison control center # 2 MINIMIZE EXPOSURE of pt to poison – pull him/her away from the poison # 3 IDENTIFY the poison

– s/e tinnitus, vertigo, ototoxicity, oliguria – for ELDERLY : N level NOT more than 1.0meq/L ADULT : N .5 – 1.2 meq/L


HEPA B diet : low fat, increase CHON

DOWN SYNDROME – large tongue – feeding problem – poor sucking (infants) SAFETY PRINCIPLE 1. when can a child USE ADULT SEAT BELT? - if the infant is 40 lbs and 40 inches in height seat belt location in car: BACK CENTER SEAT 2. TODDLER – falls 3. SUPRATENTORIAL craniotomy – semi fowler’s position INFRATENTORIAL – flat in bed 4. SCATTER RUGS – osteoporosis pts. 5. TRIAGE ; burns, open fx – “SHOCK” Things NOT TO BE DELEGATED by RN: Assessment, Teachings, Evaluation Pt 50y/o and - mammogram – once a year.

Pt with PKU – LOW PHENYLALAMINE DIET (NOT phenyl FREE). – therefore LOW CHON Pt with Rocky Mountain Fever – exposure to dog ticks Lyme’s Dses – deer ticks PSYCHE PATIENTS 1. remember to stick to unit rules/policy – be consistent to pt. 2. encourage verbalization – “tel me how…..” 3. sound knowledge of cultural diversity - seek help of interpreter 4. acknowledge pt feelings – “it seems….” “this must be difficult…..” 5. emphatize with your patients’s feelings “ I understand how you feel…..” CATARACT – CAUSES – aging and trauma MRSA (methicillin resistant staphyliccocus aureus) - USE GLOVES AND GOWN WHEN W/ PT

When discarding the contents of the bed pan use by a pt under enteric precaution – GLOVE IS NECESSARY. Preventing pediculosis in school age children: avoiding contact w/ hair articles of infected children like clips.

2HRS AFTER General anesthesia – keep NPO at least 8hrd after (check gag reflex before meals) • • • • PEDIATRIC PATIENT – use flash cards. if procedures require life threatening – they prefer to have male doctor. pt has the right to refuse procedure. . 1.they only want good news information of their condition DELEGATION and DOCUMENTATION Delegation – assessment. – 24hr urine specimen and urine catheter .they prefer same sex health care provider however. games and play to encourage participation TRANSCULTURAL CONSIDERATION HISPANIC PATIENT – women prefer same gender health care provider Obtain help of interpreter when explaining procedures – (except or don’t ask family members) For muslim patient . doctor the one who asked for consent Check pt for CONSENT – if INVASIVE – WITH CONSENT NON INVASIVE – NO CONSENT needed CONTRAST MEDIUM – check for allergy For procedure requiring anesthesia – KEEP PT NPO B4 PROCEDURE When local anesthesia used – NPO. Essential when a pt w/ meningitis is kept in isolation: isolation precaution remains until 24hrs after initiating antibiotic therapy DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES side notes: pt for IVP pt for KUB schilling test USG : : : : assess for allergy (cleansing enema b4 the procedure) no dye (don’t assess for allergy) 24hr urine specimen no consent required GENERAL CONSIDERATION • - EXPLAIN the procedure to the pt (initial nsg action) if not ready inform the doctor. monitoring and evaluation of treatment (cannot be delegated) BUT standard and changing procedures can be delegated ex.

CONTRACTION STRESS TEST (oxytocin challenge test) HOW: Thru breast stimulation – it triggers the release of oxytocin from pituitary gland… If (-) patient is given Oxytocin – onset is 20-30 minutes. Monitor for adverse reaction. NST is (+) if FHR increase at least 15 beats/min than the baseline. ring a bell b. Documentation – type of treatment and any untoward reactions. early deceleration – indicates head compression (MIRROR IMAGE)  correlates FHR with uterine contractions pt on NPO get baseline FHR then induce uterine contraction b. feed the patient then check FHR. Treat Hypotenson c. Administer O2. 140 FHB baseline. Special Consideration and Interpretation DIAGNOSTIC TESTS (to evaluate FETAL GROWTH AND WELL-BEING)  DAILY FETAL MOVEMENT Purpose : to determine fetal activity by counting fetal movements – usually perform by pt himself N Fetal Movement 10-12 for 12 hr period (average: 1 movement/hr with average 3fm/hr)  NON STRESS TEST (NST) – correlates fetal heart rate w/ fetal movement monitor the baseline FHR then induce fetal movements by (HOW) : a. Then check FHR and note the presence of DECELERATION (slowing of FHR) types of deceleration a. Report complication to the doctor FRAMEWORK – includes the Purpose. variable deceleration – due to cord (image: U or W shape) and slowing of FHR can occur anytime. (ex.collection. KEYPOINTS FOR NURSES    Prepare the patient. then after challenge it increase to 155) POSITIVE result means.
