Is the patient pulling cannulae out repeatedly? If so, would subcutaneous fluids be better? What size cannula is needed? Subcutaneous fluids : Subcutaneous fluids What are the benefits of these? Not as painful Can be sited by nurses Can be sited on shoulder Can give about 2 litres fluid/day Drawbacks? Can’t replace electrolytes Can only be used as maintenance Variable absorption Explain to Mr. Evans about having a cannula : Explain to Mr. Evans about having a cannula Volunteer please!!! Explanation : A cannula is a plastic tube that sits in your vein It is put in with a needle, but the needle doesn’t stay in It should feel a bit like having a blood test It saves us having to give you injections over and over Be sure to tell the nursing staff if it gets painful or inflamed Be careful when getting (un)dressed Don’t forget why it is needed… Explanation Cannula checklist : Cannula checklist Preparation of the skin Appropriate site Gloves worn Sterile technique Cannula inserted correctly so that it functions Cannula flushed with saline Cannula fixed and dated correctly Documentation completed correctly Any questions or comments? : Any questions or comments? You should be able to answer these questions now … : You should be able to answer these questions now … What quantities of water and electrolytes are needed for short-term daily fluid balance? What are the causes and nature of perioperative fluid losses? What fluids should be given after surgery? What are the fluid requirements in relation to body weight? What is the composition of fluids that should be used? How should one assess the adequacy of therapy? You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
