    Covid Vaccine

    Is bunching up the arm a standard of practice for frail or small arms? I’ve seen online that is my a technique that should be used for Covid vaccine.

    Covid Vaccine

    Thanks for your tip. I have been darting it in. Any advice for small frail arms?

    Covid Vaccine

    I’m giving Covid vaccines in our community. I’m looking for tips on deltoid IM injections from other nurses. Many needle phobic people I want to give the least painful shot as possible. Also many frail people with small arms.

    IV insertion: 20 gauge vs 22 gauge

    That probably is my issue, I need to adjust the amount I advance after getting a flash. Thanks.

    IV insertion: 20 gauge vs 22 gauge

    Thanks for that tip,it's possible that's what my mistake is. I did notice when I went to advance, the catheter" bunched up " at the skin insertion site.

    IV insertion: 20 gauge vs 22 gauge

    I feel like it's something I'm doing wrong. I do have occasional issues with not being able to thread my 22's also. It may be I'm not seeing the flash soon enough and go in too much. Thank you you for all your advice

    IV insertion: 20 gauge vs 22 gauge

    For general anesthesia patients we have to use 20 gauge IV's . Most of our patients get conscious sedation and we use 22's. Today I missed two patients IV 's using 20's, got a great flash but couldn't thread. Both were hand sites I missed ,but got them in the AC's. My question is do I need to do anything different when using 20 gauge IV's?

    Compression Socks..... No Longer Just for Grandma.

    They sound like a great help for my legs that have started burning and itching. Anyone have a coupon code for discount when ordering?
