What Is Good For Worp On A Patient Middle Arm
Fistula +/- aneurysm:
Dialysis patients need a mature vein that can withstand repeated puncture which is created by diverting arterial flow into a nearby vein.
Needling the same site causes a loss of pain nerve fibers, and thus patients prefer that site for repeated use. This can cause fibrosis and thinning of the wall at that site, resulting in aneurysmal dilatation. This is not in danger of rupturing. ...Read more
Trauma: Repeated trauma from the use of the needles to access for avf builds up over time. If happens to some degree in every patient but can happen more in patients who get the same areas "re-stuck" every time. These are called pseudoaneursyms. Best practice is to rotate "sticks" (needle access) as much as possible. Some patients need to have these operated on in extreme situations. ...Read more

I'm a new nurse I gave an IM flu shot today and the patient complained of tingling and slight numbness down the same arm What do you thmean nk happened?
You probably came: Close to/contacted a little nerve with your needle. There is really no way to avoid this. Injecting the needle firmly and quickly may allow nerves/tiny vessels in peril to slide away from the needle rather than being pierced by it. It is a temporary phenomenon and will not result in permanent harm. Don't let it discourage you as your begin your helping career of "jabs." ...Read more

No magic cream: ...For keratosis piliaris but consistent use of lotions like lubriderm or cetaphil, and prescription Lactic Acid lotions, alpha-hydroxy-acid lotions, urea cream, salicylic acid, or topical steroid creams can help.

Can liposuction get rid of the pendulous skin under my arms? I want to get rid of the wobbly fat and skin under my arms. Can liposuction help with this? How often do patients need to have the skin removed as well as the fat?
No.: No, generally arm lifting surgery is necessary to remove “pendulous skin" under the arms. Liposuction surgery alone will likely leave you with loose/irregular/unattractive skin. Best to seek consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience helping patients in this area. Best wishes. ...Read more

Would the arm be edematousf the patient has breast cancer, and their axillary lymphy nodes are removed?
Lymphedema: The removal of lymph nodes is the main cause of lymphedema. The nodes drain fluid from the arm. This is a treatable problem but not curable. I highly recommend going to a lymphedema clinic in order to get evaluated and treated. Treatment includes manual massage, exercises, arm sleeve and other types of manipulation. ...Read more

What do you first think of when I patient says they hear and feel a buzzing in their head and can feel electrical shocks in their arms/legs/body when they hear loud noises or are startled? What is an electrical imbalance in the brain/body? How does this
PTSD: This may not be what you have, but you asked what was the first thing that I think of when someone gives that type of history, and for me, it is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. People with PTSD have a heightened "startle response" so loud noises or sudden movements can trigger various responses - anxiety, panic etc. ...Read more
