This study aimed to analyze the factors associated with local adverse effects resulting from hypodermoclysis in older adult patients in palliative care. The study involved 127 older adults undergoing palliative care at a hospital in southeastern Brazil. Data collection was performed from August to November 2019. Patients aged 60 years or older, with a prescription for hypodermoclysis at the time of admission and who were not receiving hypodermoclysis at the time of admission, were included. Data collected included sociodemographic, clinical, pharmacotherapeutic, and adverse effects of hypodermoclysis administration...

Failure to promptly detect intravenous (IV) infiltration can often lead to damaging effects, such as necrosis and compartment syndrome, which increase the length of hospital stay and cost of care. Currently, nurses periodically monitor the vascular access device (VAD) site and extremity for symptoms of swelling, blanching, and change in temperature. However, nurses are often unable to monitor the VAD site frequently enough to detect subtle symptoms that may present immediately following an infiltration or extravasation...

During the COVID-19 pandemic, nurses were faced with challenges when caring for patients, safely administering intravenous (IV) medications and solutions, and protecting themselves from the virus. To address these challenges, nurses moved infusion pumps outside of intensive care unit (ICU) rooms of patients with COVID-19 to minimize their exposure to the virus, conserve personal protective equipment, and efficiently administer IV medications and solutions. The purpose of this qualitative descriptive study was to explore and describe nurses' perception of managing infusion pumps outside the ICU rooms of patients with COVID-19 at 6 acute care hospitals...

The administration of Ocrevus, an infusion therapy for the treatment of multiple sclerosis, is time and labor intensive, leading to poor patient adherence, treatment delays due to scheduling issues, and significant staff workload. This problem worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic, which created scheduling difficulties due to space restrictions. A US Food and Drug Administration-approved rapid infusion protocol for Ocrevus decreases the infusion time by 1.5 hours per patient. The purpose of this project was to complete a literature review on rapid infusion protocols and analyze the effects of the Ocrevus rapid infusion protocol on 2 outcomes of interest: total visit time and infusion reaction rates...

Blood collection via venipuncture is the most common invasive procedure for inpatients, who experience an average of 1.6 to 2.2 blood collection episodes per day, for a total of approximately 450 million in US hospitals annually. In addition to being painful, venipuncture incurs the risk of vessel depletion, infection, and staff needlestick injury. A possible alternative is to use peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVCs), because PIVCs are placed in the majority of patients admitted to the hospital. Although there are anecdotal accounts of successfully using PIVCs for inpatient blood collection, the utility of this method has not been rigorously studied...

This study was conducted as a quasiexperimental, single-blind study to examine the effect of cold therapy on pain and anxiety during port needle removal. Patients in the experimental group received cold therapy 10 minutes before port needle removal. Patients in the control group received no intervention before port needle removal. Data were collected using the visual analog scale (VAS) and State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI). After cold therapy was applied to the patients in the experimental group, the second and third VAS scores were found to be statistically significant and lower than those in the control group ( P < ...

The use of midline catheters has increased to reduce excessive use of central venous access devices, and additional data on midline catheter complications are needed. This study aimed to describe midline catheter complications among hospitalized patients. This retrospective study included a random sample of 300 hospitalized patients with a midline catheter insertion in 2019. The primary outcome was a composite end point of 8 complications: occlusion, bleeding at insertion site, infiltration/extravasation, catheter-related thrombosis, accidental removal, phlebitis, hematoma, and catheter-related infection...

Hemolysis is a problem associated with a variety of red cell pathologies and physiologies not limited to the transfusion of cells. Various pathways lead to the observed outcomes when a hemolytic event occurs. Each event, and the pathway it follows, is based on characteristics of the red cell, the location in which the hemolysis occurs, and the interaction of the immune system. The severity of an event can be predicted with the knowledge of how these 3 factors interface. Although not all hemolytic events are alike, similarities may exist when the pathways overlap...

In many situations, central venous catheters (CVCs), inserted by central or peripheral venipuncture, do not progress, even after performing some movement of the shoulder, head, and neck. This integrative review aimed to verify the scientific evidence about maneuvers to facilitate the advancement of CVCs in the clavicular region and/or shoulder in adult, pediatric, and neonatal patients. Primary studies with available electronic abstracts, independent of idiom or publication year, for which results showed aspects related to descriptions of maneuvers for CVC advancement in the clavicular region and shoulder, were included in the review...

Medication errors are among the most common life-threatening mistakes made in health care. The ability to accurately calculate drug doses, especially in intensive care units (ICUs), where the majority of medications are infused, reduces medication errors. Researchers have proposed dimensional analysis to improve mathematical calculations of drugs. This study was conducted to determine the effects of dimensional analysis on the infusible medication calculation skills among nursing students in ICUs. In this quasi-experimental study, the research samples consisted of sixth-semester nursing students who were assigned to an intervention group (n = 34) and a control group (n = 32)...

The objective of this study was to implement an evidence-based practice project to improve peripheral intravenous catheter (PIVC) insertion confidence and competence and to improve first-attempt success. The researcher used a blended online learning module and live simulation to increase PIVC insertion confidence and competence. Internal application of a blended curriculum model improved the first-attempt PIVC insertion success of nurses. A validated confidence assessment was completed by participants (n = 38) preintervention, immediately postintervention, and 30 days postintervention...

The COVID-19 pandemic changed home infusion nursing dramatically by increasing demand for home infusion nurses while decreasing their availability. Home infusion of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) is an option for treatment of numerous conditions and requires considerable infusion time. Use of a higher-concentration IVIg product and shorter escalation increments may decrease required infusion time. The authors conducted a retrospective database analysis that identified 23 patients receiving IVIg before transitioning to a 10% IVIg product with a 15-minute rate escalation protocol (Gammaplex 10% IVIg) and evaluated the total infusion time before and after the transition...

Vascular access specialists are responsible for assessing the patient in their unique situation and determining the correct vascular access device to complete the therapeutic goal without complication or failure. This retrospective cohort study compared the failure rates of a variety of polyurethane (PU) midline catheters and a midline catheter constructed of an emerging hydrophilic biomaterial (HBM). A total of 205 patients received a midline catheter and were situationally randomized by the facility where they received it...

Although blood transfusions are considered a potentially life-saving therapy, noninfectious and infectious adverse events can lead to significant morbidities and even mortality. Vital signs and visual observation of patients during blood transfusions are thoroughly taught in nursing school. Updated terms of hemovigilance and transfusion-associated adverse events ( TAAEs ) are presented through this case study. A patient with factor V deficiency, which requires chronic plasma transfusions, experienced 2 types of TAAEs, anaphylaxis and transfusion-associated circulatory overload...
