17. Attach catheter hub to stopcock and syringe. Atropine is the AAP-preferred vagolytic, but glycopyrrolate may be used as a second option. Verify order from licensed health care provider for placement of a vascular access device. Prior to performing any procedure, it is essential that one have knowledge of the indications, precautions, and complications associated with each procedure. Catheter may be pulled out slightly during splitting technique and may need to be advanced slightly when complete. (1) Different types of catheter introducers are available, depending on manufacturer: A variety of methods has been reported for predicting insertional length such as nasal–tragus length, sternal length, foot length, and weight. If flush solution infiltrates the tissues surrounding the catheter tip, occlude the vessel with pressure just proximal to the puncture site, withdraw the needle or catheter, and apply pressure until hemostasis has occurred. 1. If a scalp vein will be cannulated, trim hair with scissors rather than shaving to help visualize and secure IV tubing. 9. If a lower extremity PICC is placed, consider performing a lateral abdominal radiograph in addition to AP view to verify that the catheter is in the inferior vena cava and not the ascending lumbar vein. Radiographically confirming placement is central prior to any infusions. Identify vessel, trim catheter, and prepare the insertion site as previously described for PICC insertion. Other sites include popliteal, temporal, and axillary veins. As our society seeks to control rampant healthcare spending, using NPs and PAs—who are paid by Medicare at 85% of the physician fee schedule—might seem a no brainer. Allow patient to recover between suction passes while monitoring vital signs, oxygen saturation, and chest wall movement. Prepare skin at selected puncture site with antiseptic as per hospital policy, using aseptic technique. These veins include the subclavian, internal jugular, axillary, and common iliac veins. Adverse signs may include the following: If cannulation was successful and flush solution infuses without complications, connect T-connector and IV tubing with appropriate fluid to catheter, if applicable. (1) Take caution to advance gently; do not apply force, as this may perforate the vessel. Not recommended for IV use. The recommended dose is 15 units/mL. The effect of hyperventilation alone in neonates is unclear and therefore discouraged (, Loss of lung volume can occur with suctioning. and Committee on Fetus and Newborn, Section on Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, 2010). Take introducer and puncture vessel at an approximately 5- to 15-degree angle for shallow veins and approximately 15 to 30 degrees for deeper veins. Continue to maintain aseptic technique and remove catheter from package. Document according to hospital policy: date, time, catheter size, location, amount of air/fluid evacuated, patient’s tolerance of procedure. Use aseptic technique during insertion and care of PICC/MLC. 1 to 2.5 mg/kg Take care to firmly stabilize the guidewire to prevent removal or embolization. Closed-system (in-line) suction catheter kits are available that remain attached to the ETT adapter and should be used per manufacturer’s recommendations. 8. Surgical nurse practitioners could be assisting with something as complex as removing a brain tumor from a child to something as benigâ¦ d. Check for condensation in tube during exhalation. 3. 16. So too would hundreds of thousands of Americans. Over the last two decades, the number of minor invasive imaging-guided procedures performed by nurse practitioners â¦ Aesthetic Procedures: Nurse Practitioner’s Guide to Cosmetic Dermatology provides practitioners a one-source resource to attain more in-depth learning about cosmetic dermatology. Never pull the catheter back through hollow needle introducer because of the risk of damage or shearing of catheter. This should position the tip of the tube midway between the thoracic inlet and the carina, approximately at the second and third thoracic vertebrae. Pain from infiltration or ruptured blood vessel from unsuccessful cannulation. Accidental extubation or malpositioning of tube. Change into new sterile gloves if contamination occurs. 15. b. Gather equipment and supplies. 1. Use free-flow oxygen held near the mouth and nose of any infant with respiratory effort, to maximize oxygenation during the procedure. 7. Some states require a NP to have a relationship with a physician that outlines procedures the nurse practitioner may perform and procedures â¦ 2 to 6 mg/kg IV Consider premedication with an analgesic and sedative. near-central veins, past the head of the humerus or femur, have significantly higher rates of complications (. A nurse practitioner can evaluate symptoms and test for common infections. e. Check for color change on CO2 detector, if available. c. Perform venipuncture with 24-gauge peripheral IV catheter. CNS, Central nervous system; ICP, intracranial pressure; IM, intramuscularly; IV, intravenously. b. Role development 12 7. 12. Do not rock the tip of the blade upward or use the upper gum as a fulcrum. 18. Advance flushed catheter with forceps in 0.5- to 1-cm increments to predetermined distance. 26. 2. Diaphragmatic hernia is present. (1) Sterile 5- to 10-mL syringes, as recommended by manufacturer. If unable to see the glottis, apply gentle external tracheal pressure (cricoid pressure) with the fifth finger of the left hand or have an assistant perform this and withdraw the blade slowly until the glottis is visible. ■ Obtain informed consent whenever required for an invasive procedure. Other sites include popliteal, temporal, and axillary veins. (1) Consider use of 1% lidocaine injected intradermally or topical lidocaine cream, or a systemic analgesic such as fentanyl. 4. Avoid placement of a PICC in an extremity with inadequate or poor circulation. 24. Appropriately sized padded armboard, if necessary. Closed-system (in-line) suction catheter kits are available that remain attached to the ETT adapter and should be used per manufacturer’s recommendations. 21. Acceptable agents are thiopental and propofol in preterm and term infants, and midazolam is acceptable in term infants. d. Sterile gown and gloves, mask, and surgical cap. 7. When infusing fluids via MLC, follow the same precautions as with peripheral IV to avoid damage to noncentral vessels. 30 to 40 minutes 6 plus the weight in kilograms (e.g., in a 2-kg neonate, the ETT should be inserted to the 8-cm marking: 2 kg + 6 = 8 cm) Clearance of tracheobronchial secretions. are used in neonates. Remove any secretions that interfere with visualization by suctioning. If cannulation appears to be successful (i.e., flashback of blood in hub), remove the tourniquet and catheter needle (if using over-the-needle catheter), connect the tubing to the catheter hub, and inject some of the flush solution gently to evaluate patency of the catheter. Misplacement of tube into esophagus or bronchus. Remove antiseptic from surrounding skin with sterile water. Flush connecting tubing with NS flush solution. Radiographically confirming placement is central prior to any infusions. 24. 11. Restrain infant if necessary to prevent contamination of sterile field. 5. 6. k. Thread the catheter into the vein as previously described, to premeasured depth. C. Equipment and supplies. Monitor heart rate and blood pressure as it may cause tachycardia and hypotension. c. Recommended for short-term IV therapy (< 1 week). Check for blood return and obtain another chest radiograph to confirm satisfactory position. Assemble equipment using an aseptic technique. 8. d. No. Position the patient supine on a flat surface, with the head midline and the neck slightly extended (optional: place a soft flat roll under neck) in a “sniffing” position. 1. Laryngeal mask airway (LMA) should be available at all intubations in the event intubation is unsuccessful (Kumar et al. Tracheal laceration. If the infant easily becomes hypoxic or oxygenation status is critical, oxygen can be increased by 10% to 20% above baseline to maintain adequate oxygenation. Identify vessel, trim catheter, and prepare the insertion site as previously described for PICC insertion. These veins include the subclavian, internal jugular, axillary, and common iliac veins. a. Antiseptic per hospital policy. Vecuronium Use of skin closure or Steri-Strips over the body of the catheter is contraindicated, due to risk of catheter shearing (Sharpe et al., 2013). 25. Administration of fluids, volume expanders, or blood products. Monitor for hypotension. 2. 2. i. In 2012, they paid out claims for almost 18,000 procedures. Allow for free flow of infiltrated fluid. 4. May cause apnea, hypotension, bronchospasm, bradycardia, and pain at injection site. c. Diminished breath sounds. (a) Measure from the insertion site to the desired site of catheter tip. Temporarily secure catheter with sterile adhesive strips and obtain chest radiograph for catheter placement while maintaining sterile field and aseptic technique. Additional tubing and infusate as indicated per hospital policy. 1. a. Auscultate both sides of the chest for the presence and intensity of breath sounds. Use second or third intercostal space along the midclavicular line. Direct suctioning under laryngoscopy is ideal. OBJECTIVES Nursing tasks such as urinary catheter placement, sterile dressing changes, and venipuncture fall under the category of discretionary tasks. Bradycardia. b. The effect of hyperventilation alone in neonates is unclear and therefore discouraged (Davis and Rosenfeld, 2005). Make written documentation about pertinent aspects of the procedure and enter this into the medical record. Tissue injury (phlebitis, infiltration) and possible necrosis after infiltration of infused solutions and/or medications. Shallow suctioning technique is the preferred method. 8. e. Thread guidewire through catheter into the vein, approximately 3 cm beyond the tip of the catheter. Some 25 years ago, when I graduated from medical school, the concept of non-physicians providing services typically performed by physicians was foreign at best. Invasive procedures are an integral component of the time sensitive management of the acute and critically ill patients. Pull back or advance catheter, if necessary, to appropriate distance. a. Hypoxia. Check for blood return and obtain another chest radiograph to confirm satisfactory position. 9. 6. Alternatively, an assistant may encircle the proximal extremity with hand/fingers and apply direct pressure for the same effect. Limit intubation attempts to 20 seconds. If they have the training They can do pretty much everything that a doctor can with supervision, I worked with PAs and Nurse Practitioners in cardiac surgery they would harvest the veins and they are able to â¦ 7. Some even perform minor surgical procedures. Use cautiously in hemodynamically unstable infants. Infection. Antibiotic or other medicinal therapy. 3 to 10 minutes 7. Most secretions can be cleared in one or two passes. When free air or fluid is obtained, stabilize the catheter and continue to aspirate until preparation for chest tube insertion is complete, or until the air leak or fluid accumulation is evacuated. Accomplish distention of the vessel by applying a gentle tourniquet proximal to the selected insertion site. Use caution with high-frequency ventilation as pressure changes within the chest may lead to catheter migration, particularly with upper body insertions. Peripheral Intravenous Line Placement: Fundamental Procedure Avoid hyperoxygenation, hyperinflation, and hyperventilation techniques if possible. A right-sided basilic or cephalic approach is preferred because of the shorter distance between the insertion site and the superior vena cava. Nitroglycerin 2%—apply 4 mm/kg to affected area. (c) A device with a safety needle retractor should be used to avoid needle-stick injury. Although subsequent economic modeling remains to be done, it’s quite possible that some—if not all—of that 15% savings will be offset by increased downstream diagnostic testing. A variety of methods has been reported for predicting insertional length such as nasal–tragus length, sternal length, foot length, and weight. Nonsterile gloves. Obtain chest x-ray in anterior–posterior (AP) view with head midline and not in a flexed position. A device with a safety needle retractor should be used to avoid needle-stick injury. The following situations may warrant suctioning: Loss of or poor chest wall excursion with ventilator breaths. 17. 4. The infant’s condition should be stabilized with bag-and-mask ventilation between attempts. Bradycardia. The American Journal of Critical Care published a survey where researchers assessed whether acute care nurse practitioners were credentialed to perform invasive procedures. 2. b. Determine stage of extravasation (Sawatzky-Dickson and Bodnaryk, 2006; Thigpen, 2007): (1) Consider use of 1% lidocaine injected intradermally or topical lidocaine cream, or a systemic analgesic such as fentanyl. For best results, use within 12 hours of infiltration. 4. a. e. No color change with EtCO2 detector. MLC studies in neonates have reported MLC mean dwell times from 4 to 11 days (Leike-Rude and Haney, 2006; Pettit and Wyckoff, 2007; Wyckoff, 1999). Catheter should be no larger than half the inside diameter of the ETT. 10. Wash hands and ensure that equipment is in working order. If the infant easily becomes hypoxic or oxygenation status is critical, oxygen can be increased by 10% to 20% above baseline to maintain adequate oxygenation. Hematoma. 2. Active bacteremia or sepsis; however, this is controversial. D. Equipment and supplies. Different types of catheter introducers are available, depending on manufacturer: Breakaway needle—the vessel is cannulated and the catheter advanced through the needle to the premeasured distance. Monitor vital signs and for adverse responses to procedure, such as bradycardia and oxygen desaturations. Use of a smaller gauge may allow the inserter to access a smaller vessel, and minimizes vessel and surrounding nervous tissue trauma and hematoma formation. Closed-system (in-line) suction catheter kits are available that remain attached to the ETT adapter and should be used per manufacturer’s recommendations. Infection. As an alternative, 0.3 mL of contrast medium may be injected into the catheter with the AP view to verify central venous placement and avoid an additional radiograph (. Rocuronium Dilute the available 5-mg/mL product to a concentration of 0.5 mg/mL. Equipment and supplies. If resistance is met or vein is not punctured, withdraw needle slowly to just below the level of the skin, relocate vein, and advance the needle again. m. Document procedure, including method of insertion, any additional steps taken, catheter length, patient tolerance, and any complications. 1. Size 0 blade for infants weighing 1000 to 3000 g. Most infants weighing 3000 to 4000 g can be successfully intubated with a size 0 blade. b. Has not been established as safe for use in very preterm infants due to risk of benzyl alcohol toxicity. For best results, use hyaluronidase within 1 hour of infiltration but may be given up to 3 hours after infiltration. c. Consider use of topical lidocaine cream if appropriate. Sterile gloves. 9. Avoid placement of a PICC in an extremity with inadequate or poor circulation. 4 to 6 minutes IV, 10 to 30 minutes IM 4. Maintain thermoregulation, provide environmental support by protecting infant’s eyes from bright lights. (1) All personnel who are trained in neonatal intubation should also be trained in the use of LMA. The stylet must be secured so that its tip does not extend below the tip of the ETT and also so the stylet cannot advance during the procedure. The laryngoscope is designed to be held with the left hand only. Hyperoxygenation in preterm neonates is discouraged owing to risk of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). e. Check for color change on CO2 detector, if available. Palatal grooves from prolonged intubation. If the tube is in the esophagus: Air may be heard entering the stomach with inflationary breaths. VAGOLYTICS Catheter trimming device per manufacturer’s recommendation. 4. Patient’s heart rate and oxygen saturation should be monitored continuously during the procedure and stabilized with bag-and-mask ventilation if possible prior to intubation. Blood loss from inadvertent catheter or tubing dislodgment. Monitor for tissue infiltration or device dislodgment. 13. With the right index finger, firmly hold the ETT against the roof of the mouth, stabilize the right hand against the patient’s face, and carefully remove the laryngoscope with the left hand. Immediately stop all infusion of fluids and/or medications. b. Parental education and consent. D. Complications. FIGURE 15-1 ■ The major veins that may be used for peripheral intravenous line placement in young infants. Position of the tube must be confirmed by chest radiograph. Tissue injury (phlebitis, infiltration) and possible necrosis after infiltration of infused solutions and/or medications. perform a small number of interventional radiology procedures 4. and Committee on Fetus and Newborn, Section on Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, 2010). Infiltrate the area with 1 mL of local anesthetic using a TB syringe and 25- to 27-gauge needle. For PICC (central venous access) insertion (Pettit and Wyckoff, 2007): Avoid insertion in the right arm of infants with congenital heart defects resulting in decreased blood flow to the subclavian artery. Apply only to intact skin. Monitor for hypotension. C. Precautions. Lumbar puncture traditionally fell under the remit of junior doctors but, if adequately trained, advanced nurse practitioners (ANPs) are well-placed to perform the procedure. 7. a. 12. 16. h. Location of catheter tip on radiograph. May cause apnea, hypotension, and bronchospasm. Access attempts should be limited with considerable thought given to alternative treatments or access should attempts continue to be unsuccessful. 16. 3. Loosen tourniquet (if applicable) after advancing catheter a short distance. Emergency evacuation of pleural fluid. The service is a âone-stopâ evening clinic with a âsee-and-treatâ facility, â¦ E. Complications. (Courtesy and copyright Becton Dickinson and Company.) Pulmonary hemorrhage—suction only if needed to maintain tube patency. 5. Resuscitation bag with 100% oxygen source and oxygen blender. Medications given, if any, should also be documented. Keeping the cords in view, pass the ETT between the cords 1 to 2 cm into the trachea on inhalation (level of the vocal cord guide mark on the ETT). May cause tachycardia, arrhythmias, and bronchospasm. Commercially prepared suction catheter kit or sterile suction catheter and sterile gloves. Document patient’s tolerance, character of secretions (amount, color, and consistency), and breath sounds. 3. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends insertion of an MLC or PICC if IV therapy is expected to exceed 6 days (CDC, 2011). For nonemergent intubations, infant pain management is recommended prior to procedure using institutional protocol (Allen, 2012). Due to vagal stimulation from the laryngoscope, ETT, or suction catheter. c. Recommended for short-term IV therapy (< 1 week). Acceptable agents are thiopental and propofol in preterm and term infants, and midazolam is acceptable in term infants. No breath sounds will be heard on auscultation of the chest during inflationary breaths, though air movement may be heard, especially over the lower portion of the chest. Premedication can decrease adverse effects of intubation, such as bradycardia, hypoxia, and increased intracranial pressure, by treating pain and calming a patient during an uncomfortable procedure (Kumar et al. Tip of ETT should lie approximately 0.5 to 1 cm above the carina. 0.05 to 0.10 mg/kg IV Immediately stop all infusion of fluids and/or medications. 6. 1. Document date, time, catheter size, site location, and patient’s tolerance of procedure, according to hospital guidelines. b. b. Describe the precautions and contraindications for each invasive procedure. (3) Thread a 20-gauge needle over the guidewire, and move side to side in the insertion site, or If obtaining tracheal specimen, attach sterile specimen trap to suction catheter and suction tubing for specimen prior to general suctioning. g. Enlarge the insertion site by 1 to 2 mm. 18. Minimal cardiovascular side effects; however, decrease in heart rate and blood pressure has been observed when used concurrently with narcotics. Intermediate or long-term IV therapy (> 6 days). a. Therefore, pain management is essential when performing interventions in the NICU. Yet, on many occasions, these nurses are not allowed to perform. 13. 19. Pulmonary hemorrhage—suction only if needed to maintain tube patency. May cause apnea, hypotension, and CNS depression; reversed with naloxone. Air may be heard entering the stomach with inflationary breaths. NOTE: Catheters with a stylet are available. After identifying the vocal cords, and with the cords in clear view, place the ETT into the right side of the patient’s mouth with the right hand. And so, as our society continues to study and debate the optimal role of NPs and PAs as important members of our delivery teams, the policy goal seems clear: “the right care by the right clinician.” If Medicare trends reflect the right trends, then radiology practices not leveraging the skills and talents of these capable healthcare professionals may soon find themselves behind the times. Needle injury to lung or adjacent structures. If this is not possible, arrangements should be made for transfer to a center where personnel and equipment are available (. When feasible, use two caregivers to perform endotracheal suctioning if the closed (in-line) system is not in use. d. When flashback of blood is noted, advance catheter into vein and remove inner needle. 2. 5. Do not measure blood pressure or perform venipuncture on the extremity containing the PICC/MLC. and Committee on Fetus and Newborn, Section on Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, 2010, Thoracentesis: Advanced Practice Procedure, Peripheral Intravenous Line Placement: Fundamental Procedure, Alexander and Infusion Nurses Society (INS), 2011, Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter and Midline Catheter: Advanced Practice Procedure, 13: Laboratory and Diagnostic Test Interpretation, Core Curriculum for Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing. 2. Insertion of an MLC is the same as for a PICC (i.e., equipment, use of strict aseptic technique, need for continuous heparinized carrier fluid); however, their use is strictly that of a peripheral IV device. Small scissors or safety razor, if necessary. 11. The stylet should not extend past the tip of the catheter, and should never be trimmed. A nurse practitioner or Physcian's assistant can be qualified to perform the procedure under a doctor's supervision. 6. B. Contraindications. Gather supplies, use hand hygiene as indicated by hospital policy, and don gloves. 3. For MLC (peripheral venous access) insertion: Upper body insertion: Tip should end in the upper arm, distal to the head of the humerus. (1) Decreased peripheral perfusion—adapter may not change color quickly, if at all, when the neonate has little to no perfusion. A. 3. Compromised distal circulation. a. Facilitate oxygenation and ventilation. Damage to breast tissue. 9. An MLC can remain in place for 2 to 4 weeks. Gather ancillary personnel and ensure that all equipment is in working order (i.e., stethoscope, bag, and mask at bedside; suction on and functioning; laryngoscope with secured working light source; etc.). Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (ACNP) students aspiring to be employed in their roles in the acute care settings cannot be autonomous in their practices unless they have a minimum level of proficiency to perform life sustaining invasive procedures. (From Al-Shaikh, B. and Stacey, S.: Essentials of anaesthetic equipment [4th ed.]. 19. Remove antiseptic from surrounding skin with sterile water. Infiltrate the area with 1 mL of local anesthetic using a TB syringe and 25- to 27-gauge needle. How to Start an IV? Loss of lung volume. Provide pain management (Pettit and Wyckoff, 2007). 3.
