Peripheral IV Insertion and Care; Catheter Insertion

In 2011 the INS, Infusion Nurse Society released their latest “Infusion Nursing Standards of Practice."

Many changes in recommendations of how we care for infusion patients were made in this publication.  Remember it is the INS standards that the nursing profession will be held accountable to in a court of law; therefore it is imperative that we are familiar with and follow these standards. We will begin a blog series to review the current standards of infusion therapy to keep you current and knowledgeable in your practices of infusion therapy.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States for men and women, taking more lives than breast, prostate and colorectal cancers combined.

The average adult takes 15 to 20 breaths a minute, which amounts to over 20,000 breaths a day. Your respiratory system, which includes your nose, throat, windpipe (trachea) and lungs, brings air into your body when you breathe. In your lungs, the oxygen from each breath is transferred to the bloodstream and sent to all the body's cells as life-sustaining fuel. (American Lung Association).

In recognition of National Gerontological Nursing Week from September 30 - October 5, 2013, I have spent time reflecting on my career as a geriatric nurse. I actually began in geriatric care at 17 years old as a nurse’s aide working in a nursing home.  I only started that job because I needed to make some money and my girlfriend’s mother was a nurse and the administrator of the particular facility I was given the job.  I quickly found myself enjoying time with the elderly and saw a real need for advocacy when I’d found residents had not received a bath in a month, and I gave 32 baths in 10 hours.  That was 36 years ago.

The first part of this series dealt with pneumatic compression for the management of lymphedema and discussed the fact that there are three distinct modes of pneumatic compression; (lymphatic, venous and arterial). It explained that the purpose of this series is to educate nurses and other caregivers about these various systems since they are not well known or well understood in the general health care professional community. This lack of understanding can cause confusion which results in a delay in providing the patient with the appropriate therapy, particularly when the prescribing physician scribbles a vague order such as “compression booties”, leaving the nurse to try to decipher what is meant.
