It is sad to know that there is a high percentage of the population who has cardiac problems. Many people have cardiac arrest everyday and many cardiac arrests happen in private homes. With an automated external defibrillator in your home, you wouldn’t lose precious minutes waiting for rescue workers to arrive with an AED (Automated External Defibrillator). When the heart stops beating effectively and can’t adequately pump blood to the brain and vital organs, a person will die within a few minutes or if he survives, he may sustain permanent damage of the brain and other organs.

Today, I got my feet tired again. My eight hours of duty requires me to be on my feet all day walking around from patient to another patient, back and forth. Literally there are days that I can’t even sit even in 2 minutes. My poor feet have no choice but to walk around as much. But sometimes, I do not feel them while I am still caring for patients. I usually feel the pain after my shift. I just have to elevate them. I will go to a foot spa for a great massage sometimes. It did help with cramps or strains in my feet. It is really important to pamper our feet and take care of them.

Exercise as a diagnostic tool

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

Did you know about this? Exercise not only boosts fitness and wards off disease, it should also help you feel better. If it doesn’t , pay attention to your symptoms. The rigors of a work out function as a whole-body stress test that can reveal an array of serious medical conditions that might otherwise go undiagnosed and untreated.
For example, the headaches that plagued a 57-year-old man shortly after the start of vigorous physical activity actually signalled the presence of blocked coronary arteries. The Physician and Sportsmedicine, a professional journal, described this and an assortment of other case histories of exercise-induced red flags:
• Fatigue and poor athletic performance: a possible sign of anemia.
• A noticeable drop in speed and nimbleness: Parkinson’s disease.
• Abdominal cramping and diarrhea: inflammation of the colon.
• A severe headache or incoherence: a brain tumor.
• Repeated bouts of tendinitis: hypothyroidism.
Granted, many workout-related aches, pains, and other ailments stem from nothing more than an over ambitious attempt to cram a week’s worth of exercise into a single session at the gym. But any symptom that’s unusual, intense, or persistent merits prompt medical attention. Exercise may be intended to promote health, but don’t ignore its ability to uncover illness.

CNAs have instinct we, nurses, rely on them as our ears and hands but they can’t make Nursing diagnosis. They do not solve patient’s problems, not evaluate the patient, not provide health counselling, not do sterile invasive procedures, no medicine administration those are nurses’ responsibilities. They can do NGT tube feedings, can put oxygen on but can’t turn the oxygen on.

I always remember, I don’t have to take fatigue lying down. There are many ways I can fight back: Eat a balanced diet. Get enough sleep as possible. Exercise regularly by walking or jogging each day. Have a positive attitude. And take multivitamins daily. It won’t just get me back on my feet. It made me feel like the world is at my feet.
