Nursing interventions (TACTIS, drugs)

  1. 0
    Hey guys,

    New poster but old lurker and I gave in and finally registered because I have no clue what the prof is asking:

    Our professor told us to do flashcards that states:

    T - theraupeutic effect
    A - action of drug
    C - contraindications
    T - toxic/side effects
    I - interventions (nursing)
    S - safe dose

    the only thing that i'm confused about is what does interventions for nursing mean?

    for ex. digoxin and furosemide what would be the nursing interventions ?

    thanks

    Alpha,
    Nursing interventions are the things you need to do or be aware of with those drugs..ie digoxin- check apical pulse before administering, lasix- monitor I&O, monitor potassium level. Hope this helps!
