Clinical Record

Today, I built rounds with Angela Box, the hostipal wards certified wound and ostomy nurse. Although she also protects wounds and ostomies, she also makes rounds for the anthesiologists on the PCA pumps and starts PICC lines. The most interesting thing I saw was a man who had a sizable abdominal wound and had been treated which has a wound vac. He had obtained this injury as a result of and abscess caused by the nylon uppers that utilized to repair his abdominal hernia. Initially, the moment she observed him each morning, she acquired decided to try and dress the wound using a dressing referred to as Oasis, which she explained was made from pig intestine. She put a 1" x 3" strip on this dressing over the small pit in the wound, applied Xeroform gauze and after that taped it securely. Your woman told the sufferer that this dressing should previous until Mon. But about an hour later we had to go back make the patient back again on the injury vac. It absolutely was a simple treatment. She cut the sterile and clean black froth to size, placed it on the wound and fastened the tubes from the twisted vac to the foam. Utilized a large opsite type dressing and covered the twisted and the foam. Then your woman turned on the equipment and set that to the suitable amount of suction just for this patient. Specialists the patient whether it was unpleasant to use the wound vac and he stated it absolutely was not. All of us also brought up how the lady became the wound doctor for the hospital. She primarily started out since the 4 nurse? In some way she started out assessing pains. She made a decision to take a lot of classes to ensure that she could gain the right credentials. The girl with now a certified wound and ostomy nurse. It was a fascinating day. My spouse and i went to dialysis, ICU, restoration, and the different two floors of the hospital. I think this may be an additional area to consider once i get out of university.
