Hello, I'm a new grad few weeks into a preceptorship in PICU.
I've been bouncing around among few preceptors and shown different ways to zero lines.
First I was told that the transducer has to be at 4ICS (phlebostatic axis) but someone else said that it just has to be uncapped, open to air, since it zeros to atmospheric pressure and it's not necessary to be at 4ICS...
??? Who's correct?
I never realized that there would be so many ways to perform nursing tasks... even the simple ones O.o
