I was able to transfer to my hospitals dialysis unit based on the working relationship I had with the staff. Even with almost 10yrs as a nurse it was atill a difficult transition I felt like a new grad! Maybe you could start off in a unit where you could develop a working relationship with the dialysis unit and their staff then apply for transfer when they have an opening. World Marketplace Leaders.

For those who were asking about what goes on during the dialysis treatment You might receive a PCT certification from a dialysis school, but in order to sit for a national certification exam, you must have a certain number of hours of experience before you are permitted to sit for the national certification exam.
I had a couple of new PCT's that took a course through a dialysis school and received a "certification", but this way not the national certification required. It just certified them that they completed a course. They still had to have 6 months on the job experience prior to being able to sit for an exam. NurseJenny:- specializes in Pediatric Home Health.

NEJM ; 5 : This week we discuss the disutility of orthostatic vital signs as a diagnostic tool in patients with suspected volume loss. The baseline prevalence of orthostatic vital signs is common and patients will not always develop orthostatic vital signs in response to volume loss. Therefore, there will both be patients who are orthostatic by numbers without volume loss and there will be patients with volume loss who are not orthostatic by numbers.
Symptoms, with the exception of inability to stand to have orthostatics performed, are not useful either.
Bottom Line: Based on the low overall sensitivity of orthostatic vital sign measurements, they should not be used to influence clinical decision making.

More pearls from our fantastic morning report series. When seeing patients with AMS, think of the 5 broad categories of pathologies - VS abnormalities, toxic-metabolic, infectious causes, CNS abnormalities and, lastly as a diagnosis of exclusion - psychiatric issues 2. In kids with AMS, think of zebra diagnoses and toxic ingestions and remember that primary psychosis is rare 3. Patients with ALL are susceptible to developing hyperleukocytosis.
Always think about electrolyte disorders, particularly hypoNa in patients with global AMS.
This week we dive in to the initial trauma assessment. Poor test characteristics for the digital rectal examination in trauma patients. This week we dive into the rare but potentially fatal, and difficult to diagnose, air embolism. Recognizing the signs and symptoms of air embolism can be tricky because it will look like any other ischemic process. Consider air embolism if you have a patient that rapidly decompensates after placement of a central line, the most likely culprit for those of us in the ED.
Treatment should focus on supportive cares. Give supplemental O2, IV fluids and hemodynamic support and consider hyperbarics and cardiopulmonary bypass for the super sick patient. Iatrogenic cerebral air embolism: importance of an early hyperbaric oxygenation.

The dental staining seen with tetracycline is specific to that drug, not the class. If doxy is the best drug for the disease, use it.
