N2 - Background: Bedside placement of peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) may result in navigation to undesirable locations, such as the contralateral innominate or jugular vein, instead of the superior vena cava or right atrium. Although some guidance and tip location tools exist, they have inherent limitations because of reliance on physiological measures (eg, chest landmarks, electrocardiogram, etc), instead of anatomical assessment (ie, geometric changes in the vasculature). In this study, an accurate, anatomically based, non-X-ray guidance tool placed on a novel 0.035 conductance guidewire (CGW) is validated for PICC navigation and tip location. ...
A peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC or PIC line), less commonly called a percutaneous indwelling central catheter, is a form of intravenous access that can be used for a prolonged period of time (e.g., for long chemotherapy regimens, extended antibiotic therapy, or total parenteral nutrition) or for administration of substances that should not be done peripherally (e.g., antihypotensive agents a.k.a. pressors). It is a catheter that enters the body through the skin (percutaneously) at a peripheral site, extends to the superior vena cava (a central venous trunk), and stays in place (dwells within the veins) for days or weeks. First described in 1975, it is an alternative to central venous catheters in major veins such as the subclavian vein, the internal jugular vein or the femoral vein. Subclavian and jugular line placements may result in pneumothorax (air in the pleural space of lung), while PICC lines have no such issue because of the method of placement. In those who are very ...
An untoward event took place in Australia in 2011 involving a patient whose entire peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) migrated into his pulmonary artery. At this particular rural hospital, a small vascular access team was initially formed; however, the PICC insertion procedure was taken over by a physician intensivist and his medical residents, who learned the procedure from him during their 3-month rotations. The distal portion of the patients PICC, attached initially to a distal catheter-stabilizing device, dislodged and was drawn into the vein. The patients PICC, now in his pulmonary artery, was retrieved via interventional radiology and the patient experienced no serious side effects from this event. This case highlights the importance of using only highly trained personnel who are familiar with the medical supplies to insert PICCs. ...
A peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC), or PICC line, is a catheter that is placed in the antecubital vein (a large vein in the inner elbow area). It is threaded through the vein into or near the right atrium of the heart.

Peripheral inserted central catheters (PICCs) have increasingly become the mainstay of patients requiring prolonged treatment with antibiotics, transfusions, oncologic IV therapy and total parental nutrition. They may also be used in delivering a number of other medications to patients. In recent years, bed occupancy rates have become hugely pressurized in many hospitals and any potential solutions to free up beds is welcome. Recent introductions of doctor or nurse led intravenous (IV) outpatient based treatment teams has been having a direct effect on early discharge of patients and in some cases avoiding admission completely. The ability to deliver outpatient intravenous treatment is facilitated by the placement of PICCs allowing safe and targeted treatment of patients over a prolonged period of time. We carried out a retrospective study of 2,404 patients referred for PICCs from 2009 to 2015 in a university teaching hospital. There was an exponential increase in the number of PICCs requested ...
d). The limb remained well perfused and Doppler ultrasonography performed on Day 8 showed good distal arterial flow.. Arterial cannulation as a complication of PICCs has been reported in adults, but this is the first case reported in a neonate. There has been only one published case series of two neonates with significant digital ischaemia following intravenous cannulation and administration of parenteral nutrition, crystalloid and blood products.(1) Familiarity with the normal arterial anatomy of the hand is essential in preventing vascular compromise. The anatomical snuffbox is a potentially dangerous insertion site, as it contains the radial artery after it has curved dorsally and distally at the lateral aspect of the wrist to reach the deep palmar arch.(2) The first web space is the second area to avoid, as the princeps pollicis artery, a branch of the radial artery that provides the blood supply to the thumb, transverses the first web space superficial to the muscles to reach the thumb.(1) ...
The aim of this study was to identify factors that contribute significantly to the bacterial contamination of peripheral intravenous catheters in dogs and cats. Between January and June 2005, intravenous catheters were removed from 84 dogs and 15 cats at the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals, Royal Veterinary College. None of the factors under consideration was significantly associated with bacterial contamination, but 42·9 per cent of the animals with clinical signs consistent with a peripheral catheter-related infection, 34·8 per cent of the animals in which blood had been collected from the catheter immediately after its insertion, and 21·1 per cent of the animals in which a T-connector rather than a Y-connector had been used had contaminated cannulae, compared with 19·0 per cent, 19·7 per cent and 8·3 per cent, respectively, of the animals that did not have signs of such an infection, from which blood was not taken immediately, and that had a Y-connector rather than a T-connector. ...

Background: Central venous catheters and peripherally inserted central catheters are well established risk factors for upper limb deep vein thrombosis. There is limited literature on the thrombosis rates in patients with peripheral catheters. A prospective observational study was conducted to determine the incidence of peripheral catheter-related thrombosis in surgical patients. Methods: Patients deemed high risk for venous thrombosis with a peripheral catheter were considered eligible for the study. An ultrasound was performed on enrolment into the study and at discharge from hospital. Participants were reviewed twice a day for clinical features of upper limb deep vein thrombosis during their admission and followed up at 30 days. Results: 54 patients were included in the study. The incidence of deep vein thrombosis and superficial venous thrombosis was 1.8% and 9.2%, respectively. All cases of venous thrombosis were asymptomatic. Risk factor analysis was limited by the low incidence of ...

Q: What is the difference between a PICC and a midline?. Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC), which are central lines, and midline catheters, which are peripheral lines, are two types of vascular access devices (VAD) that are used frequently and are often confused with one another. The patients diagnosis, the predicted span of time the line will be required for therapy, the type of infusion needed, and the cognitive and intellectual level of the patient or caregiver are all considered when deciding which type of VAD the patient will need. PICC lines are typically chosen when longer lengths of intravenous therapy are needed but both PICC lines and midlines can remain in place for an indeterminable amount of time provided they are properly monitored for complications.. The PICC is inserted via the cephalic, basilic, brachial, or median cubital veins in the upper arm, and threaded so the catheter tip is located in the lower segment of the superior vena cava, which is considered central ...

The Article: Bugden S, et al. Skin Glue Reduces the Failure Rate of Emergency Department-Inserted Peripheral Intravenous Catheters: A Randomized Controlled Trial. Ann Emerg Med. 2016;1-6.. The One-Liner: Skin glue, in addition to standard care securement, may reduce peripheral intravenous catheter failure rates at 48 hours for admitted patients after insertion in the ED.. Background: Frequently initiated in the ED setting, peripheral intravenous (IV) catheters may fail with inadequate fixation serving as the underlying etiology in infection, phlebitis, occlusion, or dislodgement. Failure disrupts hydration, antibiotic therapy, and analgesia for the patient, and incurs the added costs of additional supplies and staff time. In comparison to standard polyurethane dressings, medical-grade skin glue (cyanoacrylate) in addition to a dressing has been proven to be more effective in securing central venous, epidural, and peripheral arterial catheters. As peripheral IVs are administered on such a wide ...

Caroline is still wearing a designer nasal canula (Im not sure if its Coach or LV, but its sooo this season) and its on about the lowest setting available. The remaining belly tube has a mandatory removal date sometime in the next 24-48 hours, but thats good and bad. The belly line has to come out because its at risk for an infection, but she still needs a line in for fluids, meds and food. If it were just fluids and meds, then an IV would work, but the food is a different story... so theyll soon have to insert a PICC line. A PICC line is a Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter. Its basically an IV that gets inserted into a vein in your upper left arm and pushed up near your heart. Food (or rough drugs) causes the small veins to collapse easily, so this will keep her from having to be stuck with a needle over and over again. It kinda stinks because it makes holding her a little more difficult, but its needed. Theyll put that intomorrow or Tuesday ...
You never know if all those needles - and Taylor took a lot - produce more pain. Science has linked Toradol to plantar fasciitis (the aforementioned torn tendons in Taylors feet), so Taylor might have been taking one painkiller … that helped create a different pain … and thus required a different painkiller. That was certainly the case after his compartment syndrome. He developed a staph infection that required that catheter to run from armpit to heart with antibiotics. Hed hook himself up to it for a half-hour a day, like a car getting gas, letting the balls of medicine roll into his body. Then he concealed the catheter in tape under his arm so that an opponent wouldnt know he was weak. Opponents will find your weakness, At the bottom of a fumble pile, a Buffalo Bills player once squeezed the hell out of Taylors Adams Apple to try and dislodge the football. Anything you read about the PICC line catheter (peripherally inserted central catheter) Taylor used will tell you to avoid ...

OBJECTIVE: The etiology of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) remains elusive despite known associations with several factors, including intestinal ischemia related to the effects of umbilical arterial catheterization on the mesenteric circulation. However, the role of the mesenteric venous circulation has yet to be studied as a potential cause of NEC. We examined the association between umbilical venous catheter (UVC) position and the development of NEC in prematureinfants. ...
Seven trials (7323 participants), assessed catheter related bloodstream infection (CRBSI). There is no clear difference in the incidence of CRBSI between the clinically indicated (1/3590) and routine change (2/3733) groups (risk ratio (RR) 0.61, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.08 to 4.68), low-certainty evidence (downgraded twice for serious imprecision). All trials reported incidence of thrombophlebitis and we combined the results fromseven of these in the analysis (7323 participants).We excluded two studies in the meta-analysis because they contributed to high heterogeneity. There is no clear difference in the incidence of thrombophlebitis whether catheters were changed according to clinical indication or routinely (RR 1.07, 95% CI 0.93 to 1.25; clinically indicated 317/3590; 3-day change 307/3733, moderate certainty evidence, downgraded once for serious risk of bias). The result was unaffected by whether the infusion was continuous or intermittent. Six trials provided thrombophlebitis rates by ...

Peripheral intravenous catheters (or IVs) are the mainstay for providing therapies in modern medicine. Yet approximately 90 million people each year require multiple attempts to establish IV access. These extra attempts result in increased hospital cost associated with employee time, additional patient discomfort, and delays in delivering important therapies. Currently IV catheters rely upon blood return and they do not assist with advancing the catheter into the vein. ThreadRite is a modified standard catheter that immediately alerts clinicians to vein entry. It also employs a guidewire to help clinicians thread the IV right into the vein. ThreadRite will reduce patient pain as well as provider costs associated with this common problem.. ...
A 27 year old G3P1011 at 25 weeks gestation with a past medical history of Factor V Leiden and patent foramen ovale (PFO) presented for neurosurgical resection of a symptomatic, enlarging tectal brain mass. Multidisciplinary management was coordinated among neurosurgery, obstetrics, obstetric anesthesiology, cardiology, and hematology. A posterior fossa craniotomy was planned. A filter was placed by interventional radiology in the inferior vena cava prior to the day of surgery. On the day of surgery, an obstetric nurse was present in the operating room (OR) for continuous fetal monitoring. After rapid sequence induction and intubation, an arterial line and 2 large-bore peripheral intravenous catheters were placed. A central line was placed due to history of PFO. A precordial Doppler was utilized for diagnosis of air embolism. Total intravenous anesthesia was administered due to intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring. Neurosurgery placed a lumbar cerebrospinal fluid drain for management of ...

Background: Peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVCs) are the most widely used invasive devices among inpatients. Catheter-related bloodstream infections (CRBSI) are serious yet preventable events for patients. Although the contribution of PIVCs towards these infections is gradually being recognised, its role in the Spanish setting is yet to be determined. We aimed to estimate the rate and incidence of PIVC failure at Manacor hospital (Spain) as baseline within a wider quality improvement initiative. Methods: Tips from all PIVC removed during December 2017 and January 2018 in hospital wards were cultured semiquantitatively. The study population included all PIVCs inserted in adult patients admitted to any of three medical and one surgical wards, emergency department, critical care unit and operating rooms. Clinical, microbiological and ward information was collected by clinical researchers for each PIVC from insertion to removal on the study sites. CRBSI was defined per international guidelines ...

Comparison of three types of central venous catheters in patients with malignant tumor receiving chemotherapy Shirong Fang,1 Jinhong Yang,2 Lei Song,3 Yan Jiang,1 Yuxiu Liu4 1Department of Anesthesiology, 2Department of Oncology, Weifang People’s Hospital, Weifang, 3Intensive Care Unit, The Affiliated Hospital of Qingdao University, Qingdao, 4Nursing College, Weifang Medical University, Weifang, People’s Republic of China Background: Central venous catheters (CVCs) have been an effective access for chemotherapy instead of peripherally intravenous catheters. There were limited studies on the choices and effects of different types of CVCs for chemotherapy. The aim of this study was to compare the complications, cost, and patients’ quality of life and satisfaction of three commonly used CVCs for chemotherapy, such as implanted venous port, peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs), and external non-tunneled central venous catheters (NTCs).Methods: A double-center prospective
Six hundred fifty-four peripheral Teflon catheters in 303 pediatric intensive care unit patients were examined to determine complication rates and associated risk factors. Phlebitis, extravasation, and bacterial colonization occurred at rates of 13%, 28%, and 11%, respectively. Logistic regression of factors that increased phlebitis risk revealed infusion of hyperalimentation (odds ratio 2.9) or lorazepam (odds ratio 2.2) and catheter location (odds ratio 2.9) as the most important determinants of phlebitis risk. Age (≤1 year, odds ratio 2.0), catheter time in situ (≤72 hours, odds ratio 2.1), and infusion of antiepileptics (odds ratio 2.1) were the most important determinants of extravasation. Catheters were colonized most frequently with coagulase-negative Staphylococcus (51/54). Sepsis attributable to catheter colonization occurred in 1 patient. Duration of catheter placement (≥144 hours, odds ratio 5.8) was an important determinant of catheter colonization. Colonization risk increased ...
The central venous catheter (CVC) is essential for the management of children requiring long term treatment with intravenous therapies. Catheter types in use are peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC), tunnelled surgical lines (e.g. Broviac/Hickman) and implanted venous access devices (e.g. Port-a-Cath).. There are often a limited number of sites for CVC placement; therefore treatment of the infection without removal of the CVC is often necessary. When the infection is life threatening or there is a confirmed fungal infection or when conservative management of a bacterial catheter related blood stream infections (CRBSI) has failed (i.e. if the same organism is grown again, post-treatment) the CVC should be removed. The Microbiologist and Paediatric Consultant /Surgeon and medical staff must discuss the nature of the organism, the clinical condition and venous access limitations of the patient to ensure that line removal is warranted.. Infection is the major complication associated with ...
Background: Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) related complications are common in catheterization patients. Many patients with PICC catheterization have diabetes mellitus. The data of incidence and risk factors in diabetic patients are scarce. Methods: A retrospective, multicenter study was performed on diabetic patients with PICC insertion from May 2017 to June 2018. A mobile App was used to collect patients and insertion information. We used univariable and multivariable analysis to examine the risk factors of PICC-related complications. Results: A total of 103 diabetic patients were included with 13 (12.6%) patients developed complications. In univariable analysis, marriage (|i|P|/i|=0.002), prior surgery (|i|P|/i||0.001) were associated with complications. Following logistic regression analysis, marriage (OR 0.13, 95 CI% 0.03-0.58, |i|P|/i|=0.007) and prior surgery (OR 2.30, 95% CI 2.33-42.68, |i|P|/i|=0.002) remained to be independent risk factors of complications. Conclusion: For
Central venous access refers to the placement of devices within the venous system and advanced to the central veins in the body in order to deliver medications into the blood stream.

Results:. A total of 240 CVC-associated BSIs (2.8%) were identified among 4,535 patients, representing 8,593 CVCs. Antimicrobial-impregnated CVCs reduced the risk for CVC-associated BSI only among patients whose CVC was used to administer total parenteral nutrition (TPN, 2.6 CVC-associated BSIs per 1,000 CVC-days vs no TPN, 7.5 CVC-associated BSIs per 1,000 CVC-days; P = .006). Among patients not receiving TPN, there was an increase in the risk of CVC-associated BSI in patients cared for by float nurses for more than 60% of the duration of the CVC. In multivariable analysis, risk factors for CVC-associated BSIs were the use of TPN in non-antimicrobial-impregnated CVCs (P = .0001), patient cared for by a float nurse for more than 60% of CVC-days (P = .0019), no antibiotics administered to the patient within 48 hours of insertion (P = .0001), and patient unarousable for 70% or more of the duration of the CVC (P = .0001). Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) were associated with a ...
Recently, various NIR devices have been launched to support intravenous cannulation. Although it is generally believed that visualization of veins with NIR might aid intravenous cannulation, thus far only 1 NIR device (the VeinViewer; Christie Medical Innovations, Memphis, TN) has been evaluated systematically.16-18 In the current study, we evaluated the clinical use of another such device at the operating rooms of a tertiary pediatric referral university hospital. The VascuLuminator was able to visualize the veins in more than 80% of the patients and was rated helpful by the performer in 21.6% of the cases. Nevertheless, the use of the device did not result in a significant improvement in success at first attempt or time to successful cannulation. Even when the NIR vascular imaging system was considered helpful, the rate of success at first attempt was not significantly higher.. In interpreting our findings, several aspects have to be taken into account. First, we chose a pragmatic, cluster ...

N2 - Objectives To facilitate venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) insertion for cardiogenic shock, we recently adopted a strategy of using a 15F arterial cannula in all patients, rather than 1 designed to maximize flow. We aimed to compare the clinical outcomes of these 2 strategies. Methods In this retrospective study, 101 consecutive patients supported with ECMO via femoral cannulation between March 2007 and March 2013 were divided ...
Aortic valve surgery in patients with severely calcified aortas is technically challenging. Additionally, the choice of arterial cannulation site and whether to perform an aortic clamp to prevent neurological complications are poorly defined. We describe a patient with a severely calcified aorta and stenosis of its side branches. He successfully underwent aortic valve replacement with bilateral axillary artery cannulation and short-term moderate hypothermic circulatory arrest for cross-clamping of a severely calcified aorta to prevent neurological complications. Bilateral axillary artery cannulation and short-term moderate hypothermic circulatory arrest for cross-clamping of the porcelain aorta is a suitable option to prevent neurological complications in patients with a severely calcified aorta and stenosis of its side branches who need aortic valve replacement.
Performing Intravenous Cannulation. Health workers use different methods of cannulation depending on their individual preferences. But to find a method with which you are most comfortable with is the real thing.. Before touching the cannula, make sure that you follow certain steps to ensure complete hygiene. Do wash and sterilize your hands. Also, it would be better if the patient is politely informed that cannulation process is required. You are supposed to explain entire process to the subject, but just saying, Itll be a little uncomfortable, but dont worry, therell be hardly any pain, will do fine too. Also, you should ensure taking consent from the subject before proceeding with cannulation.. Ready Equipments. You need to ensure all required equipments are in place and readily accessible. Gather non sterile globes, apron, cannula, cannula dressing, saline and syringe (10ml), gauze, alcohol swab, and tourniquet.. Find Right Vein, Right Spot. Before puncturing, you need to make sure that ...
We report a case of a right radial pseudoaneurysm due to assault. The pseudoaneurysm was treated successfully with prolonged ultrasound-guided compression for more than 300 minutes over multiple sittings coupled with the use of a compression device. We believe that if initial compression fails, a prolonged ultrasound-guided compression repair coupled with a compression device can greatly improve the success rates and can negate the use of more invasive procedures to treat pseudoaneurysms.. ...
Two 18-G peripheral intravenous catheters and a 20-G right radial arterial catheter were placed, and standard ASA monitoring was performed in the angiography suite. Further invasive monitoring was not necessary because of the stability of the patients chest pain with nitroglycerin patch, normal electrocardiography results, no history of congestive heart failure or arrhythmia, and the relatively hemodynamic stability of the TIPS procedure. Sedation was achieved with 50 micro gram *symbol* kg sup -1 *symbol* min sup -1 propofol, 2 mg midazolam in 0.5-mg increments, and 100 micro gram fentanyl in 25-micro gram boluses intravenously. Two hours after the start of the procedure, the patients systolic blood pressure decreased from 110 to 60 mmHg with an increase in heart rate to 110 beats/min. No ST-T changes were noted on electrocardiogram monitoring. This coincided with dilation of the Wallstent device. As the patient lost consciousness, ventilation was supported with 100% Oxygen2via mask followed ...
Two methods are described here using the radial artery, the most common site because of low complication rates. Methods can be adapted to other arteries. Another common site is the posterior tibial artery, as both the radial and posterior tibial arteries have good collateral circulation. Ulnar (to be used only in the absence of previous radial artery puncture attempt) and dorsalis pedis arteries are alternative sites. The temporal, brachial, and femoral arteries are not recommended. Axillary artery cannulation is very difficult and also not recommended. Temporal artery catheterization may have adverse neurologic sequelae. The brachial artery does not have good collateral flow and can have a lot of complications. Lateral or posterior wrist transillumination or Doppler/real-time ultrasound may be helpful in locating the artery in premature infants. Arterial catheterization requires patience ...
Arterial lines are not completely benign. They can definitely cause catheter-related bloodstream infections. This study shows that arterial lines have a rate of bloodstream infection of about 1 in 1,000 catheter days. Femoral arterial lines have a higher rate of ...
A stabilizing fitting for securely holding an intravenous catheter to a patients skin at a venipuncture site comprises a laminar base member with an adhesive lower surface and a catheter hub retaining cradle on its upper surface. After insertion of the catheter into a vein and connection to an infusion tube, the catheter hub is pressed into the cradle which locates the hub laterally and longitudinally and the fitting is dabbed onto the patients skin. Stabilization is then achieved by affixing criss-cross adhesive tapes over the assembly.

Vapocoolant sprays have been used to decrease the pain associated with painful medical procedures such as immunizations, needle aspirations, injections, venipuncture and intravenous cannulation. In general, vapocoolant sprays , have been found to be effective in decreasing the pain of various medical procedures. Moreover, the use of vapocoolant sprays ,unlike other local anesthetics , such as infiltrative lidocaine , is not associated with a painful injection and does affect the success rate of the procedure including intravenous cannulation and may even increase the success rate of the intravenous cannulation ...

Background Septic shock is associated with high mortality. Aged and multimorbid patients are not always eligible for intensive care units. Norepinephrine is an accepted treatment for hypotension in septic shock. It is unknown whether norepinephrine has a place in treatment outside an intensive care unit and when given peripherally. Objectives To describe mortality, Acute Physiology And Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE-II), time to mean arterial pressure |65 mmHg, and adverse events in patients with septic shock receiving norepinephrine peripherally in an intermediate care unit. Methods From a retrospective chart review of 91 patients with septic shock treated with norepinephrine for hypotension, ward mortality, 30-, 60- and 90-day mortality, standardized mortality ratio (SMR) and adverse events (necrosis and arrhythmia) were analysed. Administration route via peripheral venous catheter or central venous catheter was registered. Results Median age was 81 (43-96) years and median APACHE-II score

Peripheral catheterization procedures and peripheral angiography procedures performed at The Heart & Vascular Center of Central Texas - specializing in outpatient cardiac and peripheral vascular procedures.
Venous cannulation is a common procedure with a relatively high first time failure rate-one that would be unacceptable in other invasive procedures. Most practitioners could relate at least a few horror stories of patients with difficult access, and no doubt, more than a few patients view cannulation with some trepidation. When troubleshooting difficult peripheral intravenous access, the use of warmth in various forms is frequently recommended. Lenhardt et al, in 2 studies, offer the first evidence of the superiority of this practice over standard insertion.. The designs of the studies were good. Randomisation was secure with an audit confirming the integrity of the allocation sequence. Loss to follow up was minimal. Efforts were made to blind the nurse anaesthetist and residents to group assignment; however, complete blinding was impossible due to the obvious change in hand temperature. Although some subjectivity exists in the method used to determine vein scores, outcomes such as time to ...
Dr Peter Collignon and Dr Robert Horvath, the authors of the article, comment:. The guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) do recommend changes of peripheral lines after 72-96 hours rather than our suggested 48-72 hours. Our concern is that the CDC based the guidelines on the incidence of phlebitis, not bacteraemia. As phlebitis is thought to be usually due to non-infective causes (e.g. irritation from drugs), we do not believe it is an appropriate surrogate marker for bacteraemia.. If one examines bacteraemia caused by catheters, it becomes clear that there are almost no cases with catheters that are in place for 24 hours or less and sepsis is very uncommon if the catheters are in place for less than 48 hours.2,3,4The CDC guidelines still recommend routine replacement at 48 hours for emergency cannulas. This is a vague definition and appears to take in our concerns.. In our experience children do not have peripheral cannulas for prolonged periods. Although there is no reason to ...

For preterm labor and vaginal delivery, regional anesthesia with an epidural or a combined spinal epidural can provide excellent analgesia. For preterm cesarean delivery, after aspiration prophylaxis, intravenous catheter placement, and routine noninvasive monitoring placement, a regional or a general anesthetic are options. The regional technique is generally preferred, allowing the mother to be awake for the birth of her baby, resulting in lesser exposure of the fetus to anesthetic agents, avoiding the necessity of airway manipulation, and providing better postoperative analgesia. Left uterine displacement should be utilized at all times until after delivery.. For a cerclage procedure, after aspiration prophylaxis, intravenous catheter placement, and routine noninvasive monitoring placement, a regional or a general anesthetic are options. Whether the cervix is dilated and the membranes exposed will influence the choice of anesthetic. Immobility during the procedure is key to avoid damaging the ...

On Friday I had to go back into hospital as they had arranged for me to have my picc line fitted as they had a cancellation. The tablets I was supplied with on the Thursday I was told not to take as they would probably start the treatment earlier now. I was going to have the picc line fited on Monday and they had given me some Dexamethasone and a few other tablets to get me started while I waited and then start the treatment on the Thursday. Now that has all changed.. Friday I first thing I had a cannula fitted to my right wrist. They put it there as so that they could fit the picc line to my left arm and if they couldnt get it in they could still use my right arm. With the cannula fitted I had to wait for some platelets to arrive, which they gave to me through the cannula afterwards they gave me a unit of blood. Not long after starting the blood the Nurse found out I was having my picc line fitted at about one (which in hospital time means anywhere between one and a couple of hours). She ...
[WATCH] Intravenous (IV) Therapy: Discontinuing an IV Verify written doctors order to discontinue IV including IV medicines Observe ten (10) Rs. Assess and inform the patient of the discontinuation of IV infusion & of any medicine. Prepare the necessary materials: IV tray or injection tray with sterile cotton balls with alcohol, plaster, pick-up forceps in antiseptic solution, kidney basin, Band-Aid. Wash hands before and after procedure. Close the roller clamp of the IV administration set. Moisten adhesive tapes around the IV catheter with cotton ball with alcohol; remove plaster gently. Use pick-up forceps to get cotton ball with alcohol and without applying pressure, remove needle or IV catheter then immediately apply pressure over the venipuncture site. Discard all waste materials including the IV cannula according to Health Care Waste Management (DOH/DENR). Reassure patient. Document time of discontinuance, status of insertion site and integrity of IV catheter and endorse accordingly. This copy of
Investigation of the use of heparin in bile indicates that it has the ability to disperse suspended particles. Clinical experience using a heparinized saline flush in forty-three patients with retained gallstones demonstrated disappearance of the stones in thirty-one of the patients. On this basis we would recommend this treatment for further clinical trials in patients with retained common duct stones.
On the day the surgery is elected, your pet will be admitted in the morning, typically fasted for 8-10 hours with certain exceptions. Your pet will be medicated with slight sedation prior to anesthesia to alleviate pain and anxiety. Intravenous access in the form of an IV catheter will be placed for administration of medication, fluids, and other use, should immediate intravenous access be needed. The surgery will be performed in the morning and you will be notified once your pet is in recovery. Generally, your pet will stay one night in the hospital following surgery to ensure there are no lingering effects of the medication used during anesthesia, or any immediate complications associated with the surgery prior to being discharged.. Following surgery, a follow up exam is generally recommended in 10-14 days to assure adequate wound healing in the small incision in the groin area and suture removal. Generally, any medication for congestive heart failure may be discontinued at this time. Repeat ...
To the Editor:. We read with interest the article by Reggia, et al1, a monocentric study analyzing the efficacy and safety of switching from intravenous (IV) to subcutaneous (SC) formulation of abatacept (ABA) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The authors report a relatively high risk of disease relapse (27%) occurring in a mean of 11 weeks after switching to SC administration. The study did not find any significant predictive factor for a switch failure. The concern that patients with a higher body mass index could receive lower cumulative doses compared to weight-tiered monthly infusions, leading to a significant influence on treatment efficacy, was not confirmed by this study, or by previous dose-finding trials and non-inferiority randomized studies2,3,4.. We describe our experience based on a case series of 21 consecutive patients switching from ABA IV to SC administration at our center. The switch was motivated by difficulties in obtaining peripheral venous access, or to optimize ...
Hi Jan:. As you know from previous posts I have a PICC line that I use just for hydration purposes.(one liter a day). I have had 3 lines over the past 9 months. Its easier to put in a replacement PICC line than the original line. Prior to this I was getting an angiocath each week in order to get the fluids. My arms got totally scarred up and are still healing from all the sticks. Prior to the angiocaths I was in the ER every other week with severe dehydration. My thinking was to treat the symptoms, dehydration, and then try and treat the cause. I have felt much, much better since I have been adequately hydrated. I have returned to work, I have travelled to the islands and I have felt much stronger overall. I know the PICC line is not a permanent solution but I believe it is buying me time to try and find the ultimate answer. It sure beats feeling terrible and going to the ER. I have other issues than most, I have had 2/3 of my pancreas removed, etc. and I have never suffered from UC or ...
