DO NOT try to extinguish a fire unless the leak can be stopped. eliminate all ignition sources and isolate area for 100m in all directions with ventilation systems put in place to stop from moving into the sewers. first aide- move to fresh air administer o2, remove contaminated clothing, thaw any ligaments in warm
If there is an imbalance of electrolytes and is not treated there can be serious issues to arise. Some of the issues include cardiac dysrhythmias, kidney disease, the brain to swell, along with a multitude of other medical conditions that can also be life
Clinical waste should always be put into an orange clinical waste bag. Clinical waste is disposed either by yellow stream waste or by disinfections prior to landfill which is orange stream. Anything that might cause offence or distress if seen on a landfill site, such as a recognisable body part, or is highly infectious needs to be disposed of by yellow stream waste. (Under the Controlled Waste Regulations 1992) Health and Safety Commission, and the Environment Agency gives advise and guidance for disposing of clinical waste. (Waste Online 1999) Household waste is domestic items such as paper, flowers, plastic bottles which are not contaminated so are not at risk of spreading infection.
* Assess patient’s pain level and administers appropriate pain relief measures. * Maintains patient’s safety(airway, circulation, prevention of injury) * Administer medication, fluid and blood component therapy, if prescribed. * Assess patient’s readiness for transfer to in hospital unit or for discharge home based on institutional policy. 2. Identify priority nursing care to prevent potential complications following this type of surgery.
This complication can occur during the surgery and one or more nerves can be affected. When nerves become damaged, they can cause a decrease in the patient's sensation and ability to move. If an autonomic nerve is damaged, it can cause lung or heart problems or, in severe cases, death. Paralysis Spinal-cord surgery is a very delicate procedure and a surgery-related injury or infection can lead to paralysis. This complication of spinal cord surgery is rare, but possible.
007-3.2 Explain the potential impact of an out break of infection on the individual and the organisation. Impact on the organisation: There would be potentially huge cost implications on an organisation with regards to staff sickness levels rising, causing the need to employ more staff which they will be paying to cover in addition to staff that are off sick ,and patients needing hospitalisation. Patients may require to have longer stays in hospital causing a shortage of beds for other patients. Hospitals, units and wards could all face closure short term or long term. The organisation could also be fined by not complying with the law which would have a negative effect with exposure in the media.
Make sure you have all equipment needed and make sure you know how to use it before processing the crime scene. Collection methods: When a large mound of evidence needs recovering then you must remove the entire object, for small particulates use a vacuum. Scrape dried samples on none absorbent surfaces and cut dried samples on porous surfaces and swap wet samples. You must cast footprints, tool marks and teeth impressions. Use tape to tape lift hairs, fibres, paints, particulates and prints.
Careful monitoring following overexertion during exercise, or after a crush injury/orthopedic injury is the most important thing that a caregiver or patient can do. One of the complications of compartment syndrome is kidney failure due to the cellular injury that can occur. This injury can release toxic amounts of myoglobin, this will cause the kidneys to be unable to excrete potassium. This excess of potassium can lead to cardiac failure (Altizer, 2004). This is why diagnosis and treatment is so important.
Crohn’s Disease is a life-long debilitating form of inflammatory bowel disease that can cause many complications. Like most autoimmune diseases, these complications and unpleasant symptoms have shown to be unpredictable and difficult to control, which can cause a sense of powerlessness, helplessness and lead to stress and depression. There is ongoing research to understand this disease more, to determine exactly what causes this disease and ultimately find a cure.  Although the exact cause of Crohns disease remains unknown; immunologic, microbial, vascular, genetic, environmental and psychosocial factors have been suggested. The immunologic response is a cellular immune response that leads to the production of TNF-alpha.
Taylor, Lillis, LeMone and Lynn (2011), point out that changes in fluid and electrolyte balance can affect the body systems. Nurses as a health care professional need to understanding the physiology of fluid and electrolyte balance for them to anticipate, identify, and respond to possible problems which can be prevent
