  3. Infant Pain Management
    Any doc at our facility who tried a circ with SweetEase alone would find him/herself out on their ear! Nurses would flat out refuse to assist!!! We, as adults, would not have genital (or any...

  4. EMLA Cream with Circs
    I am apalled. If they're going to surgically remove healthy tissue, at least give them Lidocaine!!! How cruel!

  6. Required to watch circumcision?
    I watched one in nursing school. Horrible. Any future sons I have will be circ'ed over my dead cold body. Why would you want to surgically reduce the size of your son's penis? BEcause it's...

  8. Circumcized on a vent?
    I know in many states, including mine, Medicaid won't pay for it. I really don't know about private insurance companies.

    Being a pregnant NICU nurse is hard! I remember feeling the same way! I had weird dreams that my daughter needed to be in the NICU and I figured it would only be natural that I would be her...

  11. Circumcized on a vent?
    I was thinking that maybe she thought that they were circ'ing the baby when they were actually putting in lines? It's the only thing I can think of that makes any sense.

  12. Circumcized on a vent?
    I'm afraid to open this can of worms but.... I was on another forum and they were discussing circ'ing unstable babies. One person said her friend's baby was circ'ed while he was on a vent! This...

  13. Is immediate, undisrupted breastfeeding needed for long term success?
    The answer to this question is *no* IME (personal and professional). So many of our NICU babies go home breastfeeding. MOst of them have had very interrupted breastfeeding experiences. I...

  14. Amicillin via UAC?
    In a pinch, yes. Ideally, no. I have to say, I've done it on quite a few occasions. My old unit (where I was trained) didn't seem to have much issue with doing it. But we also had really sick...

  15. The Circumcision Discussion
    Malpractice??? That's a good one. I could say the same thing for those who fervently advocate for this unnecessary practice. I think you missed the fact that I just don't discuss it with...

  16. The Circumcision Discussion
    Well, in some ways you're right. Appendectomy is ONLY done when it's needed. When there is a medical indication. Very much unlike a circ. BUt if you think that circ's don't place infants at risk...

  17. The Circumcision Discussion
    So if there's a *risk* of it being botched. Why take that risk? You would never have to put epi on an uncirced penis to stop it from bleeding. So we traumatize them preemptively? While...

    Babylady, if you just graduated, i'm guessing you haven't had much opportunity to see what botched circ's look like. Or when they won't stop bleeding. Or when they get infected. I,...

  20. The Circumcision Discussion
    Why does this topic seemingly remove rationality? You don't surgically remove healthy, functional tissue for no reason. It's so simple.

  22. PDA murmurs
    Yeah, the whoppers are no problem. I always check for palmar pulses if the pulse pressures are wide. I *think* I'm improving. But I feel like I should have this down by now gosh darn-it!

    Breastfeeding is not about "flopping your boobs out". It is about feeding your hungry infant. Food. That is what breasts were meant to do. Make baby food. Period. If you don't wanna see it,...

  25. The Case Against Breastfeeding
