Abstract

This session covers the nursing care of commonly managed devices in the critical patient including vascular catheters, urinary catheters, chest drains, tracheostomy tubes and nasal oxygen catheters. Many nurses will be placing some of these indwelling devices and so it is important that the RVN understands the indications and contraindications to placement in addition to the placement technique. Most importantly nurses need to be familiar with how to manage the tube/drain once in situ, how to troubleshoot problems and prevent complications arising.
