Accurately measuring the PIVC insertion skill of clinical staff is an integral, but missing, part of the PIVC procedure quality improvement process, said Kevin Glover, Corporate VP, Clinical Education, Training, and Outcomes Research at B.
The PIVC checklist was designed to be used by trained Professional Advancement Clinical Tracks (PACT) nurse raters, said Nowai Keleekai, PhD, RN, Nurse Researcher at Overlook Medical Center.
Raters were required to watch and score a minimum of one PIVC insertion procedure video within 5 days of a scheduled observation session, Keleekai said.
Reducing or omitting further oral doses under these circumstances, which cannot be done with PIVC, reduces the toxicity.
5] initially published data in 1986 supporting superior treatment outcomes and reduced side-effect profiles with the use of PIVC as opposed to DOC in patients with lupus nephritis.
Given phlebitis can put patients' safety at risk, this study aimed to identify the incidence of phlebitis and its risk factors in patients with PIVCs.
A prospective observational study was conducted at a medical ward of a central hospital to assess the incidence of phlebitis and its risk factors in patients with PIVCs.
Together, these results indicate that integration of activity between structures, including the PIVC, thalamus, higher-order visual areas, and hippocampus, subserves the perception of self-referent space and motion in a manner distinct from the oculomotor or other motor responses.
Additionally, the PIVC includes regions in the posterior insula that are associated with the experience of pain .
The OMG study is a one-day prevalence study on the use and management of PIVCs
in adult and paediatric hospital inpatients worldwide.
