  • Medication Induced Bradycardia
    Gina Noggle RN BSN
    In medicine there is never a playbook about how things are going to unfold and this is especially true when it comes to recovering from surgery and anesthesia. For example, sometimes as nurses we give medications to treat one symptom and unintentionally cause another.
  • Elective Induction of Labor and Early Term Delivery
    Elizabeth Johnson
    The rate of elective induction of labor without medical indication is on the rise. Elective inductions carry long-term consequences for the maternal and infant dyad. Maternal risk of induction includes hemorrhage, uterine dystocia, uterine rupture, and cesarean section related to failed induction of labor. Neonatal risks include respiratory distress, feeding difficulty, and long-term psychological and behavioral tendencies such as attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In reviewing a variety of studies, researchers have seen a decrease in morbidities and health care costs for both mother and infant when spontaneous labor occurs. However, the risks of liability and malpractice suits tempt physicians to schedule elective inductions. By creating and implementing policies on elective induction of labor, nurses have the ability to educate patients on the importance of letting labor occur naturally.
