Gastric confirmation by pH is only achievable in approximately 50% of placements and X-rays are expensive and may be misinterpreted. Bedside electromagnetic (EM) guidance offers real-time confirmation. The authors determined the accuracy of guidance in predicting gastric body position from the EM trace using official Cortrak guidance (the EM trace reaches the bottom left quadrant of the anterior screen) compared with local guidance (detailed anterior-depth description of the GI flexures). X-ray, pH or an EM trace beyond the gastric body were used to independently confirm gastric position...

Malaria is a significant cause of mortality in many countries and remains the most prevalent parasitic tropical infection. The World Health Organization estimates that 50% of the world's population is at risk of malaria, with most deaths occurring in sub-Saharan Africa. This case study explores the management of a malaria patient admitted to a critical care unit in Zambia, a lower-middle-income country in sub-Saharan Africa. While malaria is prevalent in Zambia and other countries, in the UK all malaria is imported and less frequently seen by health professionals...

Higher rates of chronic liver disease have resulted in a significant increase in the number of patients needing regular abdominal paracentesis for ascites. Waiting times for admission at the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust had become longer and delays in intervention and treatment became inevitable. In 2014, the Trust developed a nurse-led abdominal paracentesis day-case service. A qualitative evaluation of the service was conducted using in-depth patient interviews and surveys to determine the impact of the service, including how the new nursing role affected the patient experience...

Maria Breathnach, Paula Lane
This article discusses a quality improvement project in the context of paediatric inter-hospital transportation. The project was set in a large university teaching hospital in Ireland. Risk assessment on the clinical site revealed a gap in the application of best national and international standards in inter-hospital transportation practice. A project was undertaken to explore current paediatric transport services and respond to a clinical service deficit. Consequently, the proposed quality improvement initiative proposes a universal Paediatric Advanced Life Support Programme (PALS) to upskill and enhance the required clinical standards and competencies of neonatal nurses...

This article provides an overview of the metabolic brain dysfunction hepatic encephalopathy (HE). HE is caused by severe liver cirrhosis and patients will often be treated in a liver unit, but patients with symptoms of HE may require nursing care anywhere in the healthcare system. Therefore it is beneficial for all nurses to have a basic knowledge of HE and this article explains the symptoms and treatment. Possible differential diagnoses are presented, as well as factors that can trigger episodes of HE. Both patients' and relatives' experiences are examined...
