  • 1 pack year: 20 cigarettes/day for 1 year
  • Pancytopenia: Decreased WBC, RBC, Platelets,due to gelatinous necrosis of the bone marrow
  • If you are taking a calcium supplement to prevent bone loss or an antacid that contains calcium carbonate, take it at least four hours before or four hours after taking Synthroid. Phoslo- take with food. Heparin- anticoagulant as DVT precautions.
  • Metabolic acidosis. low pH, high arterial pCO2, low 02 saturation (34)
  • “hematoma”. Unlike a tube used for gastrointestinal drainage, there is no suction attached to a Dobhoff tube. It is smaller and more flexible than other NG tubes, and therefore is usually more comfortable for the patient. The tube is inserted by use of a guide wire, called a stylet, which is removed after the tube’s correct placement has been confirmed.
  • Indicated for CKD Stages III and IV, manage glucose response
