I did an observation for school last week in the GI lab. We observed so we could write a research paper on what the nurse does pre, intra, and post procedure. I was able to witness what was done intra and post procedure, but did not get to see how a nurse interacts with the pt pre procedure, as far as pt teaching, answering questions etc. If any of you could help explain to me what you do before procedures are done in the GI lab, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
