BACKGROUND: Untreated procedural pain leads to long-term and short-term complications in neonates. Preventing pain in sick infants and neonates, whose conditions are getting worse, not only is a professional and legal duty but also a prevention measure to decrease future psychological and even neurological complications. Therefore, nurses should prevent newborns' pain. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of massage and breastfeeding on the pain of the neonates. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a clinical trial conducted among 75 full-term and near-term infants who underwent venipuncture...

BACKGROUND: Recent U.S. government regulations incentivize implementation of an electronic health record (EHR) with computerized order entry and structured results display. Many institutions have also chosen to interface their EHR to their laboratory information system (LIS). Reported long-term benefits include increased efficiency and improved quality and safety. In order to successfully implement an interfaced EHR-LIS, institutions must plan years in advance and anticipate the impact of an integrated system...

BACKGROUND: Heart Rate Variability (HRV) has been shown to be influenced by several factors such as noise, sleep status, light, and emotional arousal; however, little evidence is available concerning autonomic responses to a venipuncture. The purpose of this study was to investigate changes of HRV indexes and heart rate (HR) during, and following a venipuncture procedure among healthy individuals. METHODS: 33 healthy individuals (22.8 ± 0.56 yrs, 167 ± 1.56 cm, 69...

OBJECTIVE: Determine pediatric resident training and preparation for 14 ACGME-required procedures. METHODS: National, random sample of 1000 graduating pediatric residents in 2015. For each of the ACGME-required procedures, residents were asked if they received training, successfully completed the procedure at least once, were comfortable performing the procedure unsupervised, and desired more training. To examine relationships among these 4 measures of training, we conducted logistic regression models and receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curves...

Hossam M Saleh, Mohamed M Tawfik, Hesham Abouellail
BACKGROUND: Long-term (tunneled cuffed) hemodialysis catheters are frequently used vascular access in renal failure patients. Catheter-related bloodstream infection (CRBSI) is a common complication of long-term hemodialysis catheters, with severe morbidities and high risk of mortality. Management of CRBSI by systemic antibiotics while keeping the catheter in place is not effective. Among the different modalities of CRBSI management are catheter removal (CR) and guidewire exchange (GE) of the catheter...

BACKGROUND: The scarcity of data on the anatomy of Sapajus libidinosus has impeded the execution for appropriate veterinary treatment. The objective of this study was to describe the main peripheral veins of the capuchin monkey, used in venipuncture and indicate the best access route for venipuncture procedures. METHODS: Ten S. libidinosus corpses were used. The face, neck, chest, and pelvic limb were dissected using surgical instruments to identify and locate surface vessels...

OBJECTIVE: To study the outcomes of three different types of native arteriovenous fistula (AVF), the distal (D: radial-cephalic), middle-arm (MA: radial-cephalic) and proximal (P: brachial-cephalic) AVF access creation for hemodialysis patients in a single center. METHODS: An 8-year retrospective review, from 2006 to 2014, was conducted at a single institution in which the surgical outcomes for three different types of native AVF creation were reviewed. Preoperative duplex vein mapping was obtained in all patients to choose the best vein and site for access...

Blood sampling is the most common medical technique, and vessel detection is of crucial interest for automated venipuncture systems. In this study, we propose a new convex-regional-based gradient model that uses contextually related regional information, including vessel width size and gray distribution, to segment and locate vessels in a near-infrared image. A convex function with the interval size of vessel width is constructed and utilized for its edge-preserving superiority. Moreover, white and linear noise independences are derived...

Peripheral blood is the chief source of mononuclear cells (lymphocytes and monocytes) for immunologic studies of humans. This appendix presents protocols for obtaining blood by simple venipuncture when relatively small amounts of blood (10 to 100 ml) are necessary or by lymphapheresis when large amounts (300 to 5000 ml) are necessary. Cells collected by these procedures can be further separated by techniques described in Chapter 7. © 2017 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

OBJECTIVE: To define the anatomy of the lateral antebrachial cutaneous nerve (LABCN) and the cephalic vein (CV) in the anterior forearm region of living humans using ultrasonography for preventing LABCN injury during cephalic venipuncture. METHODS: Thirty forearms of 15 healthy volunteers were evaluated using ultrasonography to identify the point where the LABCN begins to contact with the CV, and the point where the LABCN separates from the CV. The LABCN pathway in the forearm in relation to a nerve conduction study was also evaluated...

The Zoo National d'Abidjan (Abidjan Zoo) in Côte d'Ivoire, West Africa, holds the world's largest captive population of African slender-snouted crocodiles (Mecistops cataphractus, formerly Crocodylus cataphractus), at 36 adults, 16 yearlings, and 23 hatchlings. Twelve yearling and 12 adult slender-snouted crocodiles at the Abidjan Zoo were restrained for physical exam, body condition scoring, and venipuncture in September 2015. Blood samples collected from the supravertebral venous sinus were analyzed using a handheld blood analyzer (Abaxis® I-stat, Abaxis, Inc...

OBJECTIVE: We investigated postural effects on concentrations of commonly measured serum analytes and sought for optimal duration of sitting before venipuncture in an outpatient setting. METHODS: Seven healthy volunteers changed posture serially at 30-minute (min) intervals from lying, sitting, slowly walking, sitting, and to lying again. At the end of the first lying posture, wing-needle was inserted into cubital vein and 3mL of blood was drawn every 5min. All the serum was stored at -80°C until the time of collective measurements for 16 major chemistry analytes two weeks later...

BACKGROUND Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has gained growing popularity in use in spinal fusion procedures in the last decade. Substantial intraoperative blood loss is frequently accompanied with spinal fusion, and it is unknown whether blood harvested intraoperatively qualifies for PRP preparation. MATERIAL AND METHODS Whole blood was harvested intraoperatively and venous blood was collected by venipuncture. Then, we investigated the platelet concentrations in whole blood and PRP, the concentration of growth factors in PRP, and the effects of PRP on the proliferation and viability of human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (HBMSCs)...
