I have a project due the 1st day back to fall semester. I was given the subject of 'Monitoring an IV: Medication & Solution Compatibility". I have searched all over the internet for ideas on how to get as much information in 10 minutes as I can.
Here is some of the details of the presentation.
1. No more than 10 minutes long
2. Audience is: 1st and 2nd semester Nursing students
3. Need visual elements (poster, etc.)
4. Handouts (Like what?)
There are so many medications that are incompatible, I feel it would be too overwhelming to dicuss all of them, especially for incomping students. I would like some help for general information on the subject of Monitoring an IV: medication and solution compatibility.
What happens when 2 meds are given that incompatible?
What are the most common meds that are incompatible?
Besides always checking a Compatibility chart, what else can nurses do to comply with medication compatibility?
What do you do if you give 2 meds that are incompatible?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated:kiss
