Cardizem 60mg Pills $129.00

Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Here’s a picture from an old Curad bandage ad. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Looks like the poor guy was cornered by his sister’s “Nurse Club”. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 No boys allowed unless they’re patients! Reminds me of my old skills lab in school. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 This must be what it feels like when you first come into the ER. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Moments of activity punctuated by hours of sheer boredom.

Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Everyone winds up in an ER one way or another, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 either as a patient or a visitor. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 I know what patients can do that makes it easier on the staff, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 but what can patients do to make their visit easier on themselves? Having experienced the ER from the “other side” of the siderail, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 I’ve come up with a few ideas.

Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Right now:

  • Make a list of all your medications. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 How much you take and when, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 including vitamins, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 herbal preparations and over-the-counter medications. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Include your allergies.
  • Make a list of past medical problems and surgeries. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Be thorough.
  • Put this information in your wallet, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 so that you can hand it to the triage nurse should you need to visit the ER. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 It’s hard to remember everything when you are ill. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 (Women, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 keep track of your last period. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 It’s important and will be asked). Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Keep your list on a computer so that it is easily revised as needed.

Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Before you leave:

  • Decide if you really need to visit the ER. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Most of the time it will be obvious, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 other times not so clear cut. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Fever? Vomiting? Diarrhea? Congestion? Migraine recurrance? Call your doctor or utilize the advice line of your clinic if available. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 They can give you advice over the phone that can save you the time and expense of an ER trip. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Doctors, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 if they know you, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 can call in any needed prescriptions. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 There is always a doctor on call. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Yep, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 even at 3:00 am. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 If you are concerned enough to be considering an ER visit in the middle of the night, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 it’s worth a call. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 This is especially good to do for kids, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 who never seem to get sick during office hours! Unfortunately, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 ERs are not allowed to give advice over the phone. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 It’s a legal thing. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 They will tell you they will be happy to care for you if you come in, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 but they cannot help you make that decision.
  • Find someone to go with you if possible. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 If you are given pain medication, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 you won’t be able to drive home. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Bring one person. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Try not to bring the whole family, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 it gets very hectic in the ER and most have strict visitation policies that would keep them sitting in the waiting room anyway.
  • Wear something easy to get in and out of. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 The first thing you will do is get undressed, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 so leave the complicated stuff at home. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Leave your jewelry there, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 too.

Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 While you are there:

  • Bring a book, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 magazines, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 your iPod, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 something to keep you occupied. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 You will be waiting, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 and then you will wait which will be followed by waiting. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 It is the nature of the department and inevitable. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 ERs are notorious for out-of-date reading material and the waiting room TV may be stuck on C-SPAN. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Save yourself an attack of acute boredom.
  • Bring a small blanket or afghan. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 ERs are freezing. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 You will be practically naked. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Most ERs have blanket warmers, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 but those blankets don’t stay warm for long and they don’t hand them out in the waiting room.
  • You won’t be able to eat or drink until it is decided you do not have a surgical problem. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 You will, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 however, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 have a dry mouth. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 It’s like your saliva evaporates on arrival, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 or it’s a side effect of medications you will receive. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 You may want to bring a bottle of water to sip, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 but don’t open it until you get the green light from the nurse.
  • Make sure you have your call bell on the gurney. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 Don’t be afraid to request what you need to make you comfortable. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 You aren’t “bugging” the nurses, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 they are there to help you.

Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 After you leave:

  • Follow the discharge directions. Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 If medications are ordered, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 take them as directed.
  • Make an appointment with your doctor to follow up.

Cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 An ER visit is never fun, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 but by thinking ahead and using the suggestions above, cardizem 60mg pills $129.00 it can be easier.

    I salivate when patients produce a list of their medications. Honest. I’ve gotten better over the years at guessing medications (sorry folks, but “three white tablets in the morning and two blue ones in the evening” isn’t quite descriptive enough) and from time to time I’ve pored through a drug formulary guide to work out what the unlabelled medications are…

    Oh, and as for the question of whether you NEED to go to the ER, some people really do find this difficult. One man springs to mind… he called an ambulance because his little finger hurt. It had hurt since he broke it four days ago and this was the third time he’d called the ambulance and visited us for his little finger pain.

    Just found your blog, fantastic writing and hope you and your daughter enjoyed the Rob Thomas concert!

    Yet another example of no real difference between the US and UK. It often seems people use the ER (A&E in UK) instead of bothering with their own doctor (if they actually have one of course).

    Kim, this ought to be required reading for the whole human race. I think I will post a link to it on my blog tomorrow.

    Hi Kenju,

    Considering that I think the whole human race showed up at my ER last weekend, that would be great! LOL!

    Excellent posting and excellent advice, especially about having a list of meds with you.

  • *Sigh*

    You write so well; it’s always a pleasure to read you…and truthfully, not just sucking up there, nursie…I’m learning alot.


    P.S. This is definitely, as Kenju said, something everyone should read.

    Hi, Kenju sent me. Very good advice. We have some nurses in our family and they all say how important it is to keep a list of meds and previous illnesses, allergies, etc with you at all times. You just never know when you’ll need it and none of us ever PLANS to end up in an E.R.!
