    Hi,

    Good luck in school!

    I ride my motorcycle (although thinking about ditching that for an ATV since other drivers are becoming less and less focused on the road and more focused on electronics!), hiking, biking (road and mountain), target shooting (pistols, rifles, and shot guns and yes I am a lady nurse , and whatever else anyone asks me to do. I enjoy being outside.

    Currently living with my mother, as I sold my condo and am waiting to close on my house, so I am spending more time than normal out of the house since my mother LOVES the TV (which I will never understand) and TV is like nails down a chalkboard for me, especially if it's loud! Looking forward to my new house with its beautiful wooded yard and NO TV or cable!

    1) Bed bugs are resistant to many pesticides and they also hide in places like sockets where the pesticide won't even reach. The only proven treatment is high heat (I think it is around 150 degrees) and if this is attached apartments the entire complex would need to be treated with the heat since they pass through walls. The heat treatment costs thousands of dollars which is why they are not doing it.

    2) See number 1. If this is an apartment that is attached to other apartments treating one of the units is not doing anything since they will continue to pass through the walls and hide.

    3) As another poster eluded to they will hitchhike home with you in a bag, or in your shoes etc, so don't take them into your home. I would document on an incident report about the problem every day you go to work so if you get them in your house you will have some legal recourse.

    4) Please stop spraying yourselves in pesticide, you are poisoning yourselves and it doesn't work. As I said they are resistant to many pesticides.

    5) I would quit that place ASAP in order to not risk getting bed bugs in my house!!


    Good luck

    Is it still hot where you live? Leaving your things in a hot car should kill any hitch hikers from coming home.
    MAY kill them, I wouldn't risk that!

    Quote from Here.I.Stand
    I was taught after each of my 5 deliveries, do not relinquish the baby to anyone without looking at the face side of the badge (since we know it's practically a law of physics, badges turn backwards!)
    No, not the law the physics, it's the law of I don't anyone seeing my terrible picture! :/

    That would be something you need to speak to a pharmacist with regards too or do research. Someone here may be able to help, but you would get more information on your own I think.

    I am guessing you would feeldrastically different if you or a family member needed a new organ to survive.

    Unfortunately, in my opinion, this needs to happen, otherwise there would be many less organs to be donated and more people dying waiting.

    Think about the family on the receiving end and the patient that NEEDS the organ. Do you want to call them and say "I felt it was unethical to talk to Mr. Smith's family about donating his organs. Sorry, I just couldn't do it. So Mr. Smith's organs are getting buried/cremated instead being donated so you can live". Which conversation do you think is more unethical? The example I just gave, or the one where the trained organ procurement staff go talk with the family, in a respectful manner about donation? Which one is more productive?

    Forget about the financial for the most part, but do understand no one can work for free so the organ procurement agency HAS to charge money! Look at "charities" like March of Dimes and look at what that CEO makes before you start complaining.

    I have also read many stories about organ donation giving some families some form of purpose when a person dies unexpectedly.

    I know you said you cannot afford a Mac. I would wait till the end of august into september and look at Best Buy, they generally have great deals on them! They are well worth the money and will last many years, as apposed to a PC which will last much less


    You can also look on craigslist for used Macs.

    I just want to add to what nursey poo said. D5W is technically isotonic, but it becomes hypotonic once in the body so it pulls fluid out of the vasculature and into the cells.

    D5W is 5% dextrose in water is hypotonic so it moves fluid into the cells out of the circulation.

    D5NS is 5% dextrose in normal saline. Is hypertonic so it does the opposite, it moves fluid out of the cells and into the circulation.

    Hope this helps
