I was going through my patients information for the day and I noticed in the notes it said Bilateral Pigtails placed. What are bilateral pigtails? Neither google nor my books have been successful at telling me, lol
I'm writing a paper for my ethics class about ethical issues with nursing implication. My subject is genetic enhancement- changing the genetic code in embryo's for multiple reasosns such as to reduce the liklihood of disease or even to create "designer babies." Does anyone know the ANA's stance on this? Under stem cell research it states that they support education on gene-therapy, but do they see genetic enhancment as ethical?
I'm also interested in hearing what you think are some nursing implications that would deal with gene-therapy/enhancement. How do you feel about it?
I have to answer this question for an assignment. I haven't been to the PICU yet, so I'm really unsure of the role. Is there anyone out there who can help me with this?
I'm doing an assignment before I get my PICU experience tmw and this is one of the questions. Are there any staff nurses in the PICU out there? If so, tell me what you do.
