    Helicopractor Pylori???

    Its in texas and its bad


    The best way to findout how you need to chart is to talk to a legal nurse, medical malpractice lawyer, or a nurse who has been to court.

    fentanyl pca

    Nikki, you are right, you usually will give 50 to 150 mcg / H. You may have to initiate a higher loading dose than come down.

    Have You Had Your Gall Bladder Out?

    Ive met some people who had it removed and it did not make much difference because their symptoms were related to ulcerative colitis and C. diff.

    How do you feel about Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome?

    Doesn't sound anymore trash-can than AIDS, you bring up some good points.

    Hollywood movie called "awake"

    Hollywood is a joke, that group of psychotic attention seekers has stereotyped me and my coworkers.

    Anyone use meditech computer charting?

    I've used meditech before and found the assessment to be very long, tedious, and redundant. The command driven programs are not user friendly. Maybe it has improved since I last used it. I have not used any other programs, but I can tell you that paper charting is easier than the command driven meditech.

    Noninterventional Cath Labs

    Thats retarted. no intervention, no cath

    IV Lasix, Phenergan, Solumedrol

    Not a whole lot to add to what Jen said, but i'll add anyways Promethazine is a Phenyl D. It was first used as a pesticide, it contains Hg. It is often used for nausea. It can be used for anxiety, inflammation, and psychosis.

    Naming Organic Compounds

    damn, JWK beat me. haha My first guess was "a cleaner more efficient source of fuel" but yes its generic Enflurane (Ethrane) Pete, I found a site that will help with nomenclature. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Functional_group Enflurane is an isomer so the chemical structure is somewhat pliable. It is an anesthetic with a fast onset and metabolism generally used for induction of "sleep" prior to surgery. It is used in Obstetrics for analgesia during vaginal delivery. Today Isoflurane is primarily used due to the observation of "eliptiform" wave activity on EEG seen with Enflurane. Ether or sweet oil was discovered by Spanish chemist, Raymundus Lullius in 1275. In 1540 German Scientist, Valerius Cordus described how to synthesize it and Swiss physician, Paracelsus discovered the medicinal uses of ether. For more information go to Vanderbilt:

    You Know You're a Nurse When...

    i've used it on envelopes when i realized that i needed to send late payments in addition to current payments. you know you are a nurse when you check your pulse once a week. you know you're a nurse when your alarm clock goes off and you wonder who is going to answer that patient's call light. you know you are a nurse when you refer to vegetative cells as salad. you know you're a nurse when you think there should be 2 water jugs next to the coffee machine in the family waiting area, one labelled "benzodiazapenes" and the other "opiates" you know you're a nurse when you refer to the residents as "flora"
