    019 Nursing Intubation Checklist

    26/07/2018 Duration: 21min

    Nursing Intubation Checklist - Yes, Really. Over the years I’ve developed a personal Nursing Intubation Checklist that I have for myself when preparing for RSI, DSI, or an awake intubation. This has saved my ass while working on very sick patients. Some of my checklist items cross over with the provider’s checklist. I’m sure it will evolve and I will update as needed. You may still be scrambling, but you can save yourself from going into a panic mode if your patient starts crashing and you’re trying to do everything so you don’t need to start compressions - tall order. Generally, I don’t hand over the intubation meds to the doctors until MY checklist is complete. There’s almost always time with DSI and awake intubations. With RSI you may not have as much time and you may need to hand over the intubation meds before finishing your checklist - the patient needs the airway NOW. Do you have a Nursing Intubation Checklist? Looking forward to having feedback and a discussion as to what should be added or taken

I recommend listening to Reuben's SMACC talk first, and then listen to this podcast episode and refer to the show notes. This talk got pretty in depth and long so I broke it up into 3 separate episodes. Today's episode is Part 1, an Introduction to Ketamine.  Part 2 and 3 will cover the applications of Ketamine in the ED in detail. Ketamine Ketamine is traditionally used as an anesthetic in the operating rooms. However, in many ED units, it's commonly used as a procedural sedation agent and an induction agent for intubation.

      I’m not a powerful Jedi Master with Force Visions and frankly, unable to see into the future. Hello Star Wars fans!   This is a follow-up bonus episode in response to Episode 5 Push Dose Pressors, listeners' questions, and also in light of recent journal articles that recently got published. Timing was completely coincidental when Episode 5 Push Dose Pressor podcast episode was released.   Although I’ve been using push dose pressors for years now, I still researched the topic awhile ago. Frankly, there wasn’t much out there - and there still isn’t. Why? Because it’s not standard of care. But I suspect it will be once there are RCTs and more research and we all know that takes time. Meanwhile, this is a practice that is happening in our Emergency Departments and as ED nurses, we definitely should know about them.   This is the initial reason for a push dose pressor episode on this podcast. Nurses, we are going to be the ones mixing and preparing the push dose pressors, and a good chance we will be adminis

    Malena Fryar "Use your critical thinking skills!” Do any of you remember hearing that being drilled in nursing school? How many of us are actually make critical decisions for your patients or are you deferring all decisions to the providers?  Really think about this. Decisions in triage - nurses do everything in this domain.  Most ED's don't even have a provider up in triage. We seem to do okay in this area.  But then the patient comes in to get worked up and now ALL decisions to the providers.  Why??!  Why do you have to stop making decisions? You know what’s going on - You were trained for this! As nurses, we are the ones at the bedside - who better to answer these questions, than us?! Nursing Autonomy ED nursing is awesome because we have autonomy - why give it away? Aside from the ED, the only other unit that has these privileges are the ICUs. Remember, we deal with ICU/critical patients - why not have the same autonomy? I encourage you to make clinical decisions in your practice. Yes, you may ne

    Chief Complaint Pt comes in with a heart rate of 170-200. Complains of palpitations/sob/chest pain/dizziness/or nothing.  Is this SVT or A-Fib? Hint! Today we are talking about SVT. Bedside Checklist Take off clothing waist up. Put on a hospital gown. Immediately place pulse ox, leads, and bp cuff - in that order. If oxygenation is poor with good waveform - address this first. Start with a nasal cannula, if that doesn't give your pt relief. Apply NRM, while you set up BIPAP. Find out if they have COPD or emphysema or a chronic smoker - oxygen saturation requirements are less for this population. High flow nasal cannula may be an option. Keep hob elevated to min. 30 degrees. 45-90 better. Watch the position that your patient is sitting. If they are leaning forward or sitting up straight - Put the hob at 90 degeees and ask them, is it easier for you to breathe sitting up.

    Welcome to the very first episode of the Resus Nurse Podcast! Spoiler alert: The goal is elevate emergency nursing, so we are practicing at the highest level in order to achieve the BEST outcome for our patients—no matter what the situation presents. Nursing care in the ED matters! The “real care” starts in our EDs, not after a patient goes upstairs to their admission bed. If one of your family members needs resuscitation care, what standards would you want to be applied to your loved ones? Nursing is absolutely vital within the multi-discplinary care, we implement the care. We’re at the bedside recognizing that a patient is decompensating and immediate intervention is needed, not the docs. Our patients are coming into our EDs sicker than ever. Hopefully this podcast will help you be calm and collected during these stressful situations and save some lives! Cite this post as: Yun Cee Dirsa. 001 Your Standards Are Too High!.
