First began in the 17 th century 19 th century-infection control procedures mid 1950’s-used for surgery and hydration(20%) Today approximately 90 % of pts in hospital receive IV’s Skilled nursing homes, doctors office and home
Fluid and electrolyte maintenance, restoration and replacement Administer medications and nutritional feedings Give blood and blood products Chemotherapy Patient controlled analgesics KVO for quick access
Oral medications-absorbed in the digestive tract IV- faster acting and distributed throughout the bloodstream immediately after giving
Unconscious pt: Unable to swallow: Vomiting: Nutrition: Others? Slides 3-6-material from Fulcher and Frazier(2007)
Thru peripheral IV sites-depend on gravity for administration- must be 24-36 inches above IV sites If patient changes positions volume decreases-back pressure greater, rate slows or stops Simplest controllers-roller or slide clamp Use to speed up or slow, counts gtts in drip chamber
Apply external pressure to administration set tubing to run at specified rate Specific volume/time More accurate Alarm systems-kinks, air, occlusion Disadvantage-Cost of equipment, maintenance, more serious infiltration.
Apparatus that connects large volume parenteral solution with IV access device into patient veins Insertion spikes Clip chamber Plastic tubing with rate control clamp Rubber injection port Needle adapter and protective cap on needle adapter
