Lecture went great until insertion in my opinion. I think that the vein occlusion in conjunction with releasing the tourniquet prior to retracting the needle would have prevented that blood flow. Not only does this make the area more sanitary for the provider and the patient, but patients can be squeamish at the sight of their own blood.
There are so many mistakes on this lecture. For instance, after the vein is punctured, you must clean the surfaces that are stained with blood to prevent contamination and contact. I had to stop watching as I was just shocked with the low attention to detail from the expert. I do NOT recommend this lecture.
Sorry Ms. Rhea but you are making too many mistakes during the demonstration and absolutely confusing everyone with mislabeling the equipment and items used during the procedure. For an expert, that is extremely disappointing.
Excellent! Every nursing student should watch this lecture as a resource for learning IV catheter insertion and removal. I am very impressed with Dr. Samantha Rhea. I am currently an RN taking a break and am using Lecturio Nursing to keep up on my skills. Thank you!
