Flashcards in Unit 6 Med Terms Deck (28)
peripheral venipuncture site; aka antecubital vein; superficial vein in the arm
is located in the superficial fascia along the anterolateral surface of the biceps brachii muscle
ions that carry a negative charge; includes chlorine, bicarbonate, phosphate, and sulfate
fluid found outside the body cells
Extracellular fluid (ECF)
fluid found within the body cells; also called cellular fluid
Intracellular fluid (ICF)
an excess of potassium in the blood plasma
deficiency of potassium in the blood plasma
an excess of sodium in the blood plasma
deficiency of sodium in the blood plasma
a long venous catheter inserted in an arm vein and extending into the distal third of the superior vena cava
Peripherally inserted central venous catheter (PICC)
catheter that is usually inserted into the subclavian or jugular vein, with the distal tip of the catheter resting in the superior vena cava just above the right atrium
Central venous catheter
needles with plastic flaps attached to the shaft are sometimes used. The flaps are held tightly together ti hold the needle securely during insertion; after insertion, they are flattened against the skin and secured with tape.
Most frequently used for short term therapy such as single dos therapy , IV push medications, or blood sample retrieval
peripheral venipuncture site;
It originates on the medial (ulnar) side of the dorsal venous network of the hand and travels up the base of the forearm, where its course is generally visible through the skin as it travels in the subcutaneous fat and fascia lying superficial to the muscles
Tubing used for pediatrics. Has a little needle in drip chamber. 60 drop/mL
Tubing with no needle. Drops- whatever you set it as.
a method of administering a medication mixed in a small amount of IV solution (50mL or 100 mL)
tandem or piggy back
intermittent infusion device
solutions that have the same osmolality as body fluids.
solutions that have a higher osmolality than body fluids
solutions that have a lower osmolality than body fluids
ions that carry a positive charge; includes sodium( NA +), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca+), and magnesium (MG2+)
Occurs when the tip of an IV is outside the vein and the fluid is entering the tissues instead.
The blockage or closing of a blood vessel or hollow organ.
Is the intravenous administration of an undiluted drug directly into the systemic circulation. Also known as Intravenous Push (IV Push)
A secondary IV setup that connects a second container to the tubing of a primary container at the upper port; used solely for intermittent drug administration.
Not compatible; unable to exist together in harmony
The number of drops that equal 1 mL as specified on the package of IV tubing.
An IV tubing that can be connected to primary tubing that can be piggyback tubing to administer that. Just tubing
Common venipuncture sites. The ulna and radius act as natural splints at this site and the client has greater freedom of arm movement for activities.
