I've been having what seems like an abundance of Pts lately with gastroparesis. I'm really trying to understand it. I *know* what it is but I'm feeling like I'm not doing my Pts any good.
What do your er's do for treatment? Does anyone have it that can give me good nursing care tips?
I don't understand why the recent Pts come in with blood curdling screaming until they are given multiple doses of pain medication, and start screaming again about 30 mins post dose.
I'm wondering if there isn't a psych/psychological/behavioral component to these Pts. As I just don't understand their behaviors.
