Just a few more images

These images are of the setup of the Luncheon of the Fall 2010 graduating RN program and of their Pinning Ceremony. Our class, SNAC Spring 2011, helped with set-up, take-down and some fundraising sales. Many of these  images were to give us an idea of what to expect in our ceremony come Spring 2011!

Some images worth reviewing

Pericarditis – here you can see and imagine the pain a person would have. S/S of Pericarditis: pain, pericardial friction rub, pain aggravated by breathing, Dyspnea, Fever (it looks hot!), Decreased cardiac output (you wouldn’t want it to move!) Treatment: Antibiotics  Diagnosis: see below  Leads to:  See the pericardial effusion

Echocardiogram to confirm pericarditis or pericardial effusion

Myxoma  – what does “oma” mean?      not “coma” so …. “oma” means it is benign, this is more a cancer item, but I had to throw it in. Luckily this can be removed. Benign.

Rheumatic Mitral Valve            – when you see the obstruction of the blood flow here due to the thickening or inflammation, you can see how rhematic endocarditis can cause Mitral Stenosis.                   

Ventricular Hypertrophy  – caused by increased work of the left ventricle – increased afterload (resistance) will make the heart over work.

Infective Endocarditis – s/s: malaise, wT loss, cough, back and joint pain w/fever. Leads to deformity of the leaflets. Treatment: Antibiotics – prophylaxis (esp before dental procedures). Leads to: CHF, CVA

Aortic Valve: destructive endocarditis caused by staph aureus, with abscess cavity under the pulmonary artery (aortic valve removed)
(RCA – right coronary artery, LCA – left coronary artery, MV – mitral valve)

Saga 1 – Laura & Vicki’s IV Check Off

Posted by Laura on February 27, 2010

Debra Dickinson (Instructor at AVC) is checking off the IV technique. Here are some of the step-by-step pictures taken by Lisa Gallardo yesterday.

Applying the gloves.

Getting those supplies ready. My jaw is already set though I trust her completely.

Cleaning with ChloraPrep.

Selecting the vein and lining up.

Trying to enter…..

Still trying to get that vein

Where did that vein go?

Wishing she would find it soon 🙂

Really – not there. But Vicki’s technique was good. We both passed! I stuck her and her vein’s produced right away. People are so different. Good to know.
