CRIB what it is? Hey, how long you have been in ward? You're final year right?.
Em, sorry Staff Nurse, actually we are going posted in several hospital and every hospital use their own acronym for... Oh, ok, ok. Understood. CRIB is Complete rest in bed. This patient is bla bla bla bla bla.. Wooo, actually this Sister (staff nurse/ SN) is very friendly and explained a lot of new things to me. She just seems fierce and strict in the beginning.
For Coros = For Angiogram
#Also learned how to dilute and prepared Dopamine from diluting until setup to the transfusion set (Dopamine is one of inothrope? others can be adrenaline or dobutamine, correct me if the spelling is wrong). Function of inothrope is to increase low blood pressure (BP) -
#Quiry about Antioxidant: Sodium metabisulphite 10mg in 5ml of Dopamine hydrochloride. What is it for? Then my best friend said it was a preservative to prevent dopamine from any damage. Thanks =)
#Got to know 1 patient with terrible history of life and horrific worldview (abuse, nepotisme, kronisme, money manipulating, etc). Take note for the betterment of the Ummah to strengthening the right way of life, al-Islam.
#A good and nice SN that I was tagged with taught me with patience on PR interval, what it is, how to count it, what is the normal reading of it
