    The Unsung Hero of The Emergency Department: The 24G IV Catheter

    In the end, with difficult IVs the ultrasound machine is the way to go to get a solid IV, but if you only have to give pain meds to a patient, a 24G is wonderful, but they are soft and won't last long.

    I am glad you are all knowing about CPAs. That makes me feel better. At the core of your nonsensical argument that talks about things my article does not, are you saying that Pub 463 applies to travel nurses that take the housing stipend? Each rant t...

    A CPA understands what a W2 deduction is. It is a deduction against your taxable income.

    Travel Nursing Versus the IRS: IRS Publication 463

    Please read Pub 463. It does not apply to travel nurses. You are taking parts of 463 like “tax home” and applying. It is just not true.
  12. So much false information surrounds travel nursing and the IRS. Some nurses believe they are cheating the IRS by receiving a housing stipend tax-free from their employers and it’s only a matter of time before the IRS sends the police to lock them up....
  13. This article does not apply to central lines, nor does it go into the theory of ultrasound technology. For in-depth knowledge of ultrasound technology refer to ultrasound textbooks. Do not be afraid of an ultrasound machine. Yes, it has many kno...

    Blood transfusion administration scenario question

    As a cancer survivor that has received blood many times and a nurse who has given a river of blood to patients, I see nothing else that needs to be done. Treat the patient not the monitor or a single, slight bump in temperature. If the patient felt f...

    The Unsung Hero of The Emergency Department: The 24G IV Catheter

    1200 ml/hr is the theoretical maximum the catheter can take. That said, I have done 999 ml/hr many times on DKA/drug patients that had no veins we could find at the time.
