HEPA b – TRANSMITTED BY BLD AND DODY FLUIDS) \ OPTIONAL TIPS: When implementing universal precaution. Preventing pediculosis in school age children: avoiding contact w/ hair articles of infected children like clips. they only want good news information of their condition NON INVASIVE – NO CONSENT needed CONTRAST MEDIUM – check for allergy For procedure requiring anesthesia – KEEP PT NPO B4 PROCEDURE DELEGATION and DOCUMENTATION Delegation – assessment. pt has the right to refuse procedure. monitoring and evaluation of treatment . 1. games and play to encourage participation DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURES side notes: pt for IVP : assess for allergy (cleansing enema b4 the procedure) pt for KUB : no dye (don’t assess for allergy) schilling test : 24hr urine specimen USG : no consent required GENERAL CONSIDERATION - EXPLAIN the procedure to the pt (initial nsg action) if not ready inform the doctor. if procedures require life threatening – they prefer to have male doctor. .they prefer same sex health care provider however. doctor the one who asked for consent WITH CONSENT Check pt for CONSENT – if INVASIVE – 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 .2HRS AFTER General anesthesia – keep NPO at least 8hrd after (check gag reflex before meals) PEDIATRIC PATIENT – use flash cards.15 When local anesthesia used – NPO. Monitor for adverse reaction. then after challenge it increase to 155) KEYPOINTS FOR NURSES Prepare the patient. early deceleration – indicates head compression (MIRROR IMAGE) b. variable deceleration – due to cord (image: U or W shape) and slowing of FHR can occur anytime.16 (cannot be delegated) BUT standard and changing procedures can be delegated ex. . NST is (+) if FHR increase at least 15 beats/min than the baseline. late deceleration – indicates placental insufficiency (REVERSE MIRROR IMAGE) mgt: L Lateral Recumbent Position. Treat Hypotenson c. monitor the baseline FHR then induce fetal movements by (HOW) : Documentation – type of treatment and any untoward reactions. 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 a. Then check FHR and note the presence of DECELERATION (slowing of FHR) types of deceleration a. CONTRACTION STRESS TEST (oxytocin challenge test) correlates FHR with uterine contractions pt on NPO get baseline FHR then induce uterine contraction HOW: Thru breast stimulation – it triggers the release of oxytocin from pituitary gland… If (-) patient is given Oxytocin – onset is 20-30 minutes. b. 140 FHB baseline. – 24hr urine specimen and urine catheter collection. Administer O2. BABY is REACTIVE (good condition) and no need for contraction stress test/oxytocin challenge test – coz baby is OK and doing well. (ex. ring a bell feed the patient POSITIVE result means. Report complication to the doctor FRAMEWORK – includes the Purpose. then check FHR. NPO preparation: increase fluid intake (oral) NO consent needed If pt ask if it is painful: NO PAIN. . Pt shld have full bladder or can be done on the 3rd wk (34-36 wk) purpose: to detect fetal maturity (FLM) Get sample at chorion (by 10-12wks – thru monitoring of L/S Ratio N 2:1 The placenta matures. b.

A mother asked the nurse what will amniocentesis provide during pregnancy: it will show as whether the baby lungs are developed enough for the baby to be born. AMNIO & PUBS: a. USG DEVICE before Amniocentesis. if AOG is 20wks and below : full bladder after amniocentesis w/c of the following manifestation if observed by the nurse on the patient that needs to be reported : bleeding. a nurse is preparing pt for lower abdl usg – w/c of the following done by the pt needs further teaching – pt voids b4 the procedure. AMNIOCENTESIS – was done @ 35 wks gestation – purpose: to determine fetal lung maturity. pt ask the nurse – what deceleration means – it refers to slowing of baby’s heart rate. b. infection bleeding abortion fetal death TIPS EARLY DECELERATION – expected in the fetal monitor when there is fetal head compression. d. 19 detect presence of Celiac Disease (CD) intolerance to gluten. gluten free diet will be for life time) SICKLEDEX TEST ELECTROPOISIS HGB Purpose: test for sickle cell anemia Purpose: test for sickle cell anemia ORTOLANI’S TEST (OT) MANUEVER (BM) BARLOW’S purpose: test developmental dysplacia of the hip or purpose : same congenital hip dislocation Specimen : Blood : (blood + solution. abdl rigidity. abdl cramps. pt is given gluten rich food for 3-4 months the observe s/s of CD s/s of CD: distention test for pre-teen : “bend over test” – bend and touch the toe. abdl (if + for CD. steatorrhea. therefore + for SC Dses Test for TRAIT Test for Disease (+) if w/ click sound (lateral) (+) barlow’s click – press downward and w/ click sound POLYSOMNOGRAPHY or “sleep test” infancy - EEG is connected to pt when he sleeps Check the brain waves.
