The application of adult nursing pads in surgery
Adult nursing pad is a disposable sanitary product made of PE film, non-woven fabric, fluff pulp, polymer and other materials. Adult nursing pads can reduce the occurrence of hypothermia in surgical patients, and at the same time reduce the frequency of moving patients. The vital signs are significantly smoother than those of patients with repeated turnings, and the patient feels comfortable. So what are the applications of adult nursing pads in surgery? Let me introduce to you.
1. Before operation: Lay two 90*60cm2 adult nursing pads on the stretcher to isolate the patient’s body from direct contact with the stretcher. Depending on the patient’s condition, use the patient’s own translation or two-person transfer method to move the patient. Move it to the stretcher and cover with the quilt. The general principle of handling is to move lightly, shorten the distance, and save energy. During transportation, keep warm.
2. Intraoperative: Intraoperative disinfectant and various rinsing fluids overflow, the nursing pad can quickly absorb, keep the surface dry, avoid the irritation of the wet bed sheet to the patient's skin, and reduce the loss of skin heat conduction.
3. After operation: Place the scoop stretcher on the flat car, and spread two nursing pads on the stretcher flat, with a nursing pad in the middle corresponding to the patient's waist and hips. After being transported to the ward, the nurses and nurses lift the scoop stretcher to the patient's bed, disassemble the stretcher, check whether the adult nursing pad is flat, and cover the patient with a quilt to prevent loss of body temperature. During the entire transportation process, pay attention to observe the patient's vital signs, lip color, and whether there is any chills.
