(Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2010) Viewing the screen during the scan, sonographers look for subtle visual cues that contrast healthy areas with unhealthy ones. They decide whether the images are satisfactory for diagnostic purposes and select which ones to store and show to the physician. Sonographers take measurements, calculate values, and analyze the results in preliminary findings for the physicians. (BLS, 2010) In addition to working directly with patients, diagnostic medical sonographers keep patient records and adjust and maintain equipment. They also may prepare work schedules, evaluate equipment purchases, or manage a sonography or diagnostic imaging department.

CRITICAL REFLECTION ON FACTORS INFLUENCING A CLINCAL DECISION. The purpose of this assignment is to critically reflect on factors influencing a clinical decision based on one of the experiences I have witnessed during my clinical placement. The clinical decision will be focusing on the care of a client and involves a nursing input. The episode of care I will be examining what happened in a recovery theatre following orthopaedic surgery for the removal of screws to the left ankle. The clinical decision which I witnessed involves bringing pain under control by administration of 1mg of midazolam intravenously to a 12year old patient who said she was in crucial pain after administration of 10mg Morphine.
(Taylor, p.1502) | NI # 5Prior to 0900 HCTZ dose, assess BP + HR.Hold med if SBP < 100 or DBP < 60 per MD order. | Rationale:Assessment is a prerequisite to administration. (Taylor, p. 821) Nurse should ask if patient’s condition and symptoms warrant receiving each drug. (Taylor, p. 819)HCTZ is a thiazide diuretic that lowers BP. (Lilley, p. 410) | EVALUATION7:Goal met.

Where as, EMR is a computerized health information system where providers record detailed encounter information such as patient demographics, encounter summaries, medical history, allergies, intolerance and lab test histories.

The researchers hypothesized that emotional pain is neurologically similar to physical pain, and therefore, use of the drug would ease the emotional pain. In order to test this, they conducted two experiments, using a wide variety of methodologies. In both experiments, the independent variable was the use of the drug, and the dependent variable was the measure of the participants’ hurt feelings via an emotional journal written by the participants each day. In the first experiment, two groups of approximately 30 participants each were given instructions to take medicine every day for 3 weeks. The first group was given acetaminophen, and the second was given a placebo.
