    interventions for bradycardia fht

    Baseline 120, 115, lowest 110, category 1 tracing...moderate to minimal variabilty with accelerations Then for less then a 5 minute period baseline runs 105. what are some interventions I could have done? I know it was only for a 5 minute period but fhr variability did dip to the 100s no decelerations though. Had the strip continue like this with a low baseline how long can I really allow this strip to go on like this? I know for tachycardia... As along as fht still has variability and accelerations, you can let the strip go on for awhile...perhaps give some 02 but what about in the case of low baseline?
  6. I don't know how long I'll be able to do nights, 8hrs shifts, 72 hrs a pay period. I just started on nights finally after being trained but looking in at long term, I honestly don't know how long I'll last and be able to stick with this life style. It kinda sucks. I hate to complain but what to do? I already put in a request to be considered for another shift but very unlikely that there will be an open position. What if I can't stick it out? Is worth it to just look into another hospital in the area that does 12 hour shifts?? I've done 12 hour shifts nights in the past and seem to be able to tolerate that more...

    NRP online examination

    I remember the last NRP test I had to take was a written test and it was much easier! I'm doing the online test right now and I only got to part 3 of part 12 and I failed already. Had to repay the $23 and start all over. any advice tips? I don't want to have to do that again... err.

    What's the max dose Pitocin is allowed at your hospital?

    Interesting, I've maxed at 20 mU/min and have had to turn off pit and restart at a later time.
