Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 Sorry, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 I couldn’t resist.

Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 (I actually love that series, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 Jerry Jenkins is, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 ahem, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 one hell of a writer!)


It’s no secret that I’m a night person.

I’ve said before it is easier to stay up until 0700 than to get up at 0700!

And I prefer the night shift for many reasons, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 not the least of which is that there are less people around and you can spend more time with your patients.

And….I have no young children and can sleep when and how long I want. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 Usually.

The males of the household have learned, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 sometimes painfully, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 that to wake me up results in a voice that makes Luciano Pavarotti sound like Barry White.

Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 But if I had to give advice to someone who was just starting the night shift (and that may be a few new grads out there), tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 I can only tell you what works for me and I’ve learned this over the years through trial and error.

  • Put All Your Piggies In A Row
    • Try to get your shifts scheduled sequentially.
    • Under no circumstances allow yourself to be scheduled “one-on-and-one-off”. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 Unless you live the hours of a night nurse whether you are working or not, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 this will do you in!. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 It’s easier for me because I tend to be a human “Bat” (except I don’t hang upside down in a closet.)
    • Always have at least two days off in a row before returning to the night shift. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 This is not easy if you are working full time, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 eight-hour shifts. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 So….
      • I suggest that if you are given the opportunity, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 work only 4 days a week or less.
      • The differential of the night shift should make up for the missing day.
      • It is possible to work one-week-on/one-week off and I have done that before. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 I remember liking it. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 I don’t think I had gray hair then. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 Not that I have it now mind you.
    • If you have the chance to work three 12-hour night shifts per week, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 try to avoid working them all in a row.
      • It will take you two days to recover, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 at least.
      • You will feel (and look) like death warmed over by the end of the third shift.
  • Don’t Give Your Piggies Roast Beef
    • I’m not sure what it is about nocturnal consumption, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 but I found that eating during the night caused bloating and discomfort.
      • A snack is okay, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 a few crackers with some milk or half a sandwhich.
      • Also, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 eating at night is a sure way to gain weight, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 especially if it is not a busy unit/night and you’re eating to stay awake or out of boredom.
    • Watch the coffee intake
      • If you’re like me, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 you’ll pour five cups and actually have time to drink about half a cup.
      • If you are sleeping in the morning, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 watch the caffeine after about 0400.
      • If you are an afternoon sleeper, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 it shouldn’t affect you.
      • And remember, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 coffee is acidic so can contribute if you have that bloating/discomfort discussed above.
  • Back at the Ranch
    • Make your environment sleep friendly
      • Get your room as dark as possible or sleep in the darkest possible area
      • Consider using a fan or another type of machine as “white noise”. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 This will drown out neighborhood noise, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 barking dogs, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 cars, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00etc.
    • If you can’t sleep
      • Get up. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 Laying there trying to sleep is only going to make it worse.
      • Take a hot bath, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 read.
      • Be careful about using antihistamines to sleep, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 they can cause a “hangover” type feeling and you will be groggy while awake. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 I, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 personally use melatonin but please do not constitute that as advice.
      • If you sleep for a few hours only and then are wide awake, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 try to take a nap before going to work.
    • Stay hydrated
      • Dehydration can cause headaches. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 I left the night shift once after suffering from prolonged low-grade headaches that would last 5-6 days. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 It was because I drank nothing but coffee and Diet Pepsi. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 It had nothing to do with the shift.
  • So why put yourself through working the night shift?
    • Minimal management presence – not that management is bad, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 it just means less distractions from taking care of patients.
    • Group cohesiveness – night shift workers tend to take care of each other and there is much less back-biting.
    • Usually a less number of patients, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 giving you more of a chance to do more for them and get to know them better, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 at least in the ER.
    • A shift differential – where I work, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 it is rather substantial, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 thanks to the work of the California Nurses Association over the years.
    • You can be home for your family when they are awake.

Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 So night shift is a doable, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 often desirable shift to work. Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 It’s the best shift for me.

Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 But that old saying that a nurse needs to take care of herself first is truer in this situation than any other.

Tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 If you are meant to be a night nurse, tenormin 100mg pills $126.00 you will know it!

Clomipramine 50mg Pills $215.00


Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 Since when do patients leave the hospital looking like they are on a business trip?

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 This guy even has had his shoes shined!

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 The sentiment at the top of the photo is quite nice and very true.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 However, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 on the new nursing cap rating scale instigated by KACNAC (Kim’s Accreditation Commission on Nursing and Caps), glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 this nursing cap is a 6.75 on the 0-10 scale.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 However, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 since very few nurses wear their cap, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 except me, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 I don’t believe this will put a cramp in anyone’s work habits.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 And besides, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 I don’t think I have the authority to impose it.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 But one can dream.


It it’s Tuesday if must be Grand Rounds! Today our host is our favorite New York nephrologoist at Kidney Notes.

I was surprised and honored to find that an Emergiblog post was selected as an “Editor’s Pick”.

Again, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 an amazing selection of stories, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 education and information. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 “Walk” your keyboard on over and check it out (with or without your suitcase!).


I was happily blogging via WiFi at a local Seattle’s Best this afternoon (see above) and it totally rocked! I’m going to do it on a daily basis. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 Being there during the day is wonderful because

  • Everyone who is studying is in school.
  • Everyone who works 9-5 is working 9-5.
  • Seattle’s Best, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 although owned by Starbucks, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 has better coffee and cleaner shops.
  • The coffee shop is attached to Borders bookstore so I am 20 feet away from a vast expanse of written literature and fun stuff like totally cool pens and stationery.
  • I’m easy to please.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 During this idyll time I received an IM from my son who informed me of the results of my husband’s visit with his surgeon today.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 His gallbladder was gangrenous.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 I’ll save the full story for Scared to Health.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 My reaction was one of total, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 retroactive shock. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 My legs went numb.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 It’s a good thing I was sitting because blogging face down in a coffee shop would have attracted attention, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 I’m sure.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 I then did the most stupid thing I could have done. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 I googled “gangrenous gallbladder mortality”.Wrong.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 It’s between 25-50% if surgery is not done in time. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 The mortality rate was zero in one study of over 200 patients with a 21.5% incidence of gangrene when the surgery was performed on a timely basis.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 The problem is that a gangrenous gallbladder presents no differently than a regular gallbladder in terms of symptoms – the type of symptoms that bring people to an ER.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 How many times have we taken care of people with gallbladders that are, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 unknown to us, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 gangrenous, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 taken care of their pain, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 given them an ultrasound and sent them home to follow up with a surgeon in 1-2 days?

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 The surgeon said she was surprised hubby was not sicker than he was given the state of the gallbladder upon removal. Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 It only had two tiny stones in it.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 I took the last sip of my latte, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 closed down my computer and on legs that weren’t exactly steady, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 met the kids after their movie and drove them to cross-country practice.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 Life goes on now, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 pretty much as it did two weeks before.

Glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 I said a prayer of thanks as I walked to my car, glucovance 400.5mg pills $82.00 shedding a few tears in the process.

Diltiazem 180mg Pills $294.00

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 firenurses

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 This ad is for fire sprinklers.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 Notice the quick and efficient nurses executing the hospital fire evacuation plan.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I guess they are waiting for the patients to become victims so they can then put their “quick plans” into good use.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 The one on the far left looks like she has comes from a “dreaded harsh toilet tissue” ad.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 The next one looks like she is eating an ice cream cone.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 Hard to do in a fire, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 don’t you think?

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I mean, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 it melts and all.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 Then we have two with so much air in their heads they have risen spontaneously like human helium balloons.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 The enthusiastic professional on the right is just counting the minutes until her shift is over.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I thought automatic sprinkler systems were a more recent invention.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 Sure would wreck havoc on a nurse’s cap.


Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 In my department, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 the designated Charge Nurse is the triage nurse.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 This can be tough on hellacious shifts because one cannot be in triage 100% of the time and really know what is going on in the department itself.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 This is not as big a problem in my ED because, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 well, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 basically everyone is so experienced and self-sufficient there is no need of any major interventions. Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 The Charge Nurse gets involved if there is a patient complaint, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 a problem with getting a patient upstairs or re-arranging patients if a specific ED room is needed.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I love triage, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 but don’t like being in charge.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 In the huge tribe of health care I am an excellent Indian with no aspirations to the position of Chief.


Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 There are three theories to how triage should be handled.

  • The Down and Dirty Doorway Destination Decision
    • Pass the triage room and go directly to Park Place, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 meaning you park your derriere immediately in a place on a gurney.
    • Chest pain, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 severe dyspnea, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 CVA symptoms or hemmoraging at the secretary’s desk gets you this designation. Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 Throwing up on the secretary’s desk can, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 on some occasions, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 also facilitate your entry into a room.
    • You usually meet 90% of the ED staff within one minute of arrival as they all converge to get you “settled” (an IV, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 blood draw, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 EKG, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 portable chest and monitors all over your body, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 foley or CPR if you’re unlucky). Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 Then they all disappear.
  • Surf ’em and Turf ’em
    • A one sentence chief complaint, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 multiple hash marks in a few boxes, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 allergies and half a set of vitals as you visually surf the patient.
    • Then you turf ’em to the waiting room to wait for registration.
    • NEXT!
  • The Triage Trifecta
    • A complete history of the present illness with focused assessment.
    • Past medical history including surgeries, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 last period, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 pregnancy status (yes/no), cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 Gravida/Parida, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 and immunization status including last DT when appropriate.
    • A full set of vital signs including pain scale, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 weights on pedi patients and head circumference on infants (don’t get me started on that one)

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 There is no problem with the first system – emergent patients are emergently treated and that is universal.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 So how far should you go when triaging a patient? How much information is too much information? Can you ever have too much information about a patient?

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 For the record, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I’m a “Teresa Trifecta”. Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 Every inch of that triage sheet is filled, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 checked, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 slashed, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 listed and signed. Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I ask about previous surgeries. Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I send families home for the medications or the list they forgot if the chief complaint warrants it.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 But….I’m confused.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I’ve been told by a colleague that, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 in her opinion, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I’m too thorough. Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 Spit ’em out faster is her philosophy (a full triage with a patient that speaks English takes me 5 minutes, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 a child slightly longer).

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I’ve had physicians tell me they love my triage notes, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 that they know what to expect when they go to see the patient.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 How can you just “spit ’em out faster” when some EDs require that tetanus boosters and fever control medications be given at triage? Along with the usual ice, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 elevation and the occasional pressure dressing or splint? Or the extra time it takes to get rectal temps on small children? Or the writing of 15-20 medications for the elderly?

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 It’s a catch-22. Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 You are supposed to move faster because there are more people to see, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 but every year more information is required from each patient at the point of intake.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I say that the more information you collect up front the better. Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 Some will say otherwise and as long as we do the mandated check marking, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 it gets by quality control.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 But 5 years from now, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 I don’t want to be sitting in a courtroom with a practically blank triage note blown up for a jury with my name on it.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 So “Teresa Trifecta” I shall remain.

Cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 When you’re dealing with someone’s health, cardizem 60mg pills $70.00 there is no such thing as too much information.
