Overview

Intravenous Infusion Therapy for Medical Assistants / Edition 1

This essential publication focuses on what the CMA needs to know about intravenous infusion therapy. Infusion or IV therapy has long been part of the acute care of patients. However, more patients are receiving IV therapy at home, in emergency centers, at infusion centers, and in dialysis clinics. Thus, CMAs often need to understand IV therapy to lay out the equipment, to monitor the patient, to assess the infusion site, to discontinue the infusion, and perhaps even to insert the IV. The purpose of this book is to help you understand the theory of IV therapy. With patient safety in mind, risks, complications, and adverse reactions are discussed in Intravenous Infusion Therapy for Medical Assistants. Giving the correct medication is crucial to the CMA, so intravenous infusion preparations are compared and contrasted. Sidebars of Medical Assisting Alerts and Tips are distributed throughout the text to highlight key safety concerns and professional issues. Each chapter concludes with Review Questions and Activities to ensure that learning objectives have been met.
