  • This is a wonderful idea for teaching IV therapy or for continuing education.

    1. 1. Jeopardy Peripheral IV Therapy
    2. 2. 100 200 300 400 500 100 200 300 400 500 100 200 300 400 500 100 200 300 400 500 Routine but Important Looking for Trouble Finding Trouble Go With the Flow Peripheral IV Therapy Rate It! 100 200 300 400 500
    3. 3. GC 100 <ul><li>How often should IV sites be rotated and tubing changed? </li></ul><ul><li>Every 72 hours </li></ul>BACK
    4. 4. GC 200 <ul><li>When should paramedic IVs be changed? </li></ul><ul><li>Within 24 hours of insertion </li></ul>BACK
    5. 5. GC 300 <ul><li>What is a mid-line catheter? </li></ul><ul><li>It is sometimes confused with a central line, has a high incidence of complications, and is almost never inserted at FSH. </li></ul>BACK
    6. 6. GC 400 <ul><li>Why should you avoid starting IVs in the antecubital? </li></ul><ul><li>Because your patient may eventually need to have a PIIC line inserted </li></ul>BACK
    7. 7. GC 500 <ul><li>What is an antecubital IV? </li></ul><ul><li>It should be avoided or changed out as soon as possible. </li></ul>BACK
    8. 8. LFT 100 <ul><li>What is IV therapy monitoring? </li></ul><ul><li>The key to prevention of IV complications </li></ul>BACK
    9. 9. LFT 200 <ul><li>What are reasons to monitor? </li></ul><ul><li>Patient’s response to therapy; Confirmation of accurate delivery of fluid/meds; Detection of imminent complications </li></ul>BACK
    10. 10. LFT 300 <ul><li>When (how often) should you monitor? </li></ul><ul><li>It depends on the type of therapy, age, mental status, overall physical condition, type of access device, and practice setting </li></ul>BACK
    11. 11. LFT 400 <ul><li>What do you check during a bag to tip assessment? </li></ul><ul><li>The fluid container, tubing and flow rate, in-line filter, electronic infusion device, arm board, IV site dressing, vascular access device, insertion site, and catheter tip </li></ul>BACK
    12. 12. LFT 500 <ul><li>Why should you look in dependent areas for evidence of infiltration? </li></ul><ul><li>Because infiltrated fluids can settle in areas that are dependent from the infusion site. </li></ul>BACK
    13. 13. FT 100 <ul><li>What are INS grading scales for phlebitis and infiltration? </li></ul><ul><li>They are a standardized way to rate and communicate the severity of complications </li></ul>BACK
    14. 14. FT 200 <ul><li>What is a warm compress? </li></ul><ul><li>You can use it to relieve pain and increase flow when the patient is experiencing venous spasm. </li></ul>BACK
    15. 15. FT 300 <ul><li>What should you do for an INS rating of 1, 2, 3, or 4? </li></ul><ul><li>Discontinue the IV and restart it in another location. Consider calling the M.D. for a 4. Document in the medical record. </li></ul>BACK
    16. 16. FT 400 <ul><li>What should you do when your patient has pain, but no sign of infiltration or phlebitis? </li></ul><ul><li>Assess for venous spasm, temp. too low, pH too low, high concentration. If none of those factors, DC and restart IV. </li></ul>BACK
    17. 17. FT 500 <ul><li>What should you do for extravasation? </li></ul><ul><li>Stop the infusion; DC the IV; apply cold or warm compresses, depending on the infusate and your unit protocol; call the M.D.; document in the chart; fill out a Drug Report Form; and monitor frequently. </li></ul>BACK
    18. 18. GWTF 100 <ul><li>What are some ways to ensure adequate infusate dilution? </li></ul><ul><li>Use smallest catheter possible; prepare admixture according to manufacturer instructions; inject irritating IV push medications into free-flowing IV </li></ul>BACK
    19. 19. GWTF 200 <ul><li>What factors dictate flow rate? </li></ul><ul><li>Pressure and resistance </li></ul>BACK
    20. 20. GWTF 300 <ul><li>What can you try when the pump is alarming for no apparent reason? </li></ul><ul><li>Stop the infusion momentarily so that the pump can reassess the baseline pressure -- but continue to monitor </li></ul>BACK
    21. 21. GWTF 400 <ul><li>Why does blood infuse faster when it’s been hanging for awhile? </li></ul><ul><li>Because the blood warms with time and becomes less viscous </li></ul>BACK
    22. 22. GWTF 500 <ul><li>Why don’t electronic infusion pumps alarm for early infiltration? </li></ul><ul><li>Because pressure in the interstitial spaces is less than venous pressure. That is… until infiltration becomes so severe that the skin becomes taught and starts to exert pressure. </li></ul>BACK
    23. 23. RI 100 <ul><li>What is Grade 4 Infiltration? </li></ul>BACK
    24. 24. RI 200 <ul><li>What is Grade 1 Infiltration? </li></ul>BACK
    25. 25. RI 300 <ul><li>What is Grade 3 Infiltration? </li></ul>BACK
    26. 26. RI 400 <ul><li>What is Grade 1 Phlebitis? </li></ul>BACK
    27. 27. RI 500 <ul><li>What is Grade 4 infiltration with possible tissue damage? </li></ul>BACK
