Drugs that get dialyzed out of circulation?Register Today!
- by CNA764 Jun 7, '09Is there a book or website out there that list which drugs get/don't get dialyzed out? I got busted by pharmacy for holding zyvox IV (because of HD), apparently zyvox doesn't get dialyzed out (according to the pharmacist). Also, are pain meds just as effective during HD?
- Jun 9, '09 by Tish88The book I mentioned above from www.ckdinsights.com , is small enough to slip into your pocket and comes in handy especially when doing acute treatments.
It fits into a med cabinet easily too.
I just ordered 10 more for my acute staff since it is the 2009 edition. They are free!
- Oct 24, '09 by rn_nxt_drThese are awesome references that is invaluable to all nurses. I appreciate reading things like this because I too would like to become a Nephrology nurse. Though the situation seemed bleak right now, there is a way to reach this goal. I keep myself abreast to discussions on what nurses are looking for, training later on is much easier knowing how to work around the team.
I heard a lot of negatives esp. with job roles, company that only look at bottomline, home health aspect of HD, etc. I truly appreciate this site.
Thanks! and keep up the good work!
- Jun 29, '11 by MedicjjrnThanks about the little books...free is awesome. I wish pharmacy would tag on mar what to hold for dialysis on the mars! But some mars don't even say don't crush, or don't give w vitamins, take w food, must sit upright for 30min after, etc.
